Olympus 75-300mm at Yellowstone and the Tetons
I am just wading through all the pictures that I took during a fantastic 3-week holiday in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons NPs and Cody, Wyoming. I mostly used the 12-50 and the 75-300 with my new OM-D.
I really don't know whether the Oly lens is better or worse than the Panny equivalent as I don't have both. However, I can say that it was a very workable rig with the OM-D and HLD-6 grip. I mostly used 'S' mode to keep the speed up to help with any camera shake and also to freeze motion where needed.
Some images are here:

These are all OOC jpegs, given the much-derided auto enhance treatment in Aperture. I am still key wording and haven't done more than a basic initial run over possible selects and certainly no major pp. For basic web sharing and small printing you could waste a lot of time with a raw image (I have!) and not get significantly better results than the Oly jpeg and the A3.3 auto enhance. Large scale printing, ultimate picture quality etc - probably a different matter.
