What reach and such beautiful pictures
- I purchased the OM-D E-M10 Silver kit with M.14-42mm lens and M.75-300mm II lens. This setup results in excellent reach!
- This lens (75-300mm II) produces excellent images wide open at all apertures.
- The question is whether to get the M.40-150mm R or M.75-300mm II lens. The M.40-150mm is lighter. If you want to do some birding, then the M.75-300mm II makes sense. Either way you have a setup covering most situations. And it won't break your back as the setup is still pretty light.
- It can serve a reasonably good telephoto macro lens. I love the results as I find true macros literally a pain to shoot now :)
Some tips I would recommend:
- Although this camera has 3 axis, when using with the M.75-300mm II lens, at the 300mm end, I found I get more keepers using either a tripod or a handholding technique of using a shoulder for support.
- When using with the M.75-300mm II, at the 300mm end, in not so ideal condition which we will likely see when doing birding, it is better to use Single AF as otherwise sometimes the camera will stay out of focus and won't AF. Moving to Single Shot AF took care of this issue.
What can I say, for the money, this lens is a steal. It produces beautiful photos and is reasonably well built.

Well, it is affordable...
Until they come out with a 300mm prime this will have to do.
It is a long way from the 75mm f/1.8 and I am spoiled by that lens.
I stay away from the full 300mm limit and don't stop it down too much.
If you don't look too closely the images are fine and for the price it is a good value. I tried some old 35mm Minolta primes in this range and this lens is a lot better than the ones I tried so I am satisfied.

Handles beautifully on the E-M5
Waited on Olympus for over two months and finally gave up on them and ordered it from a local brick and mortar. I found this lens to be mechanically superb. No lens creep for one thing, and balanced beautifully on the E-M5 with or without a tripod. It's lighter than competing 100-300mm lenses. Very sharp at focal lengths near wide open and good enough for the price out to near 300mm, a little soft at fully 300mm. Focuses quickly without searching. Looks absolutely great on the E-M5. It's fun to use and I've been using it a lot since I got it three days ago.
