Staggering difference...

For anyone considering getting an Olympus MFT lens that has 300 mm range.

You will need to review the originals. The JPG's are straight out of the E-Mk ii without any post processing and are all over 10 Mb so hopefully dpr does not compress/ degrade the downloaded images.

Target Focus point

Olympus 75-300, oops taken at 286 mm in lieu intended 300mm @F 6.7

Olympus 40-150mm Pro with MC-20 attached at 300mm @ F6.3

Olympus 300 Pro @ F6.3



Huge difference, especially in the corners. The 40-150 Pro with TC is much better than the 75-300, and the 300 Pro is, again, much better than the 40-150 Pro with TC.

The difference between the 40-150 Pro/MC20 and 300 Pro isn't huge in the center. The difference in the corners is likely due to the addition of the TC.

The 75-300 is the only one weak in the center.
