Any examples of Olympus 300mm 2.8 on a Micro 4/3 camera?

    I know this lens is crazy expensive and I have no plans of ever buying it, but I am thinking about renting it for some up close and personal pictures of bears. I am curious if anyone has used it on a Micro 4/3 camera with an adapter and how the focus speed etc. operated. I have a OM-D, GH2, and GX1 to choose from but would use the om-d for IS. Just curious, would love to hear some stories and see some examples.

    I have the 150 f2 four thirds lens for my E-5. I have tried it on my E-Olympus OM-D E-M5 The results were about what you'd expect, pretty modest AF performance. So long as the bears aren't particularly fast moving, you should be okay.
