    Is any one shooting with this combo and how does it perform especially at wildlife and at the top end of the zoom range? I would probably think I would use it with a tripod or a monopod for the high end photos (300mm's). I was thinking about this combo till I saw they are coming out with the mk III version soon. I am not into video at all so waiting for it I will probably pass on it. The price on the mk II is pretty darn good and my get better after they release the mk III version. I might consider the E-m5 II for the weather sealing. Regardless of which one it will also will get the 12-40 Pro for it also I think as well as the 100-300 II. I think these two lenses will do about all I could ask for out of two lenses. I have been dancing around the Olympus cameras for awhile now and its getting close to pulling the trigger. I want to do this once and make sure it is correct and being retired on basically a fixed income one time is it.
    Feedback appreciated thanks Bill

    How about pairing the Panasonic 100-300 ii with a Panasonic G80
    This way you will get the additional benefit of Dual IS ii which gives you combined in camera and O.I.S image stabilisation working together ?
    The 100-300 would perhaps be better balanced with the G80 as the EM10 11 is quite small ( albeit much better with bigger lenses with the superb optional ECG3 grip which I would very highly recommend if you do go with the EM10 11)
