Sandra will not wear that price

You can get either of the 300 mm zooms for around 400$ used and for occasional "opportunistic birding", they will hit the spot.

In NZ the 75-300 II sells close to US$ 400.- new (NZ$ 660.-).

Furthermore, you will find that the diminutive and light E-M10 doesn't mate well with behemoth lenses.

Picture I saw this morning shows the consumer 100-400 with a tripod mount - which makes the E-M10 II an attachment for the lens, not the other way round.
