Re: Olympus 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 II

I have both the 75 - 300 mkii and the 40 - 150 pro lens with the EM1 mk ii

I bought the 75 - 300 lens when going on holiday with very restricted hand baggage.  Every gm was important.  I got it second hand for a very good price.

I did miss the gap between 40mm and 75 mm but the 12 - 40 pro did a pretty good job when using a  cropped image.

I've found the 40 - 150 plus the x 2 teleconverter a bit sharper, slightly better on focus and subjectively better colour clarity but all marginal.

The low weight of the 75 - 300 is a bonus not to be under estimated.
