Oly 40-150 and Pana 45-150 - super cheap, seems like a no-brainer, does it get soft when fully zoomed?

Yep, total no-brainer. And no, unlike the 75-300, the Oly 40-150 does not get soft at the long end.

I compared it with its large, heavy, expensive Pro-buddy, and all I can say, it's holding up very well.

Keep in mind though, when you do landscapes with a telephoto, you are compressing any atmospheric disturbances/distortions, and often end up with a muddy, soft looking shot. Not the lens' fault...
