Re: Opinon needed on Oly 300mm F4 vs 100-400mm

I have both but my opinion is very subjective and not based on detailed comparisons, having the EM1ii as body. I prefer sharpness of 300mm with 2X to 100-400 with 1.4X. I just tried 100-400 with 2X once, IS and IQ was limited for my handheld capabilities. IS is significantly better with 4/300mm, even with TCs. AF is acceptable for me with 100-400 for my needs and how I shoot. I believe 100-400 is very capable compared to the price level and where I need any flexibility I am using that still. In case you are in a situation you need to hold for a while in hand waiting for a moment (long minutes without tripod) weight benefit of the 100-400 is significant.
