Thanks for the suggestions/comments!

Additional questions about the oly 75-300, I know that it can be a good alternative.. can it produce a good enough image? (at least on the level of oly 14-150 is sufficient for me)

I tried to find some reviews online but I can't find a lot about it😅

I have been considering adding the 75-300 for a lighter telephoto than my Pan Leica 100-400, particularly for my E-M5 III.

I have a friend that recently added Ike 75-300 an he also has the 14-150 (as do I). I asked the same question, “is it as good as the 14-150?”.... his answer, “exactly”. He also shoots with the 300 f/4 so he knows what good image quality is.

I personally find the quality of the olmypus 75-300 II at 300mm to be really good; here some example of shots at 300mm that I shot since I bought this lens.

full moon at 300mm.

frog at 300mm, acceptable detail and sharpness.

270mm at ISO 3200, feather detail is still acceptable in my option.
