    Game parks with the E-M1 and m43 75-300mm.
    This has to be the best value and easiest to carry travel tele available. Taken by my wife, not an experienced tele shooter.
    Cheers,
    Don

    Very nice indeed. I've always found mine to be nice too.

    I almost got rid of my 75-300 when I only owned the EM5. It would constantly mis-focus or hunt like crazy.
    I then picked up an EM1 with PDAF and the 4.0 firmware upgrade. I got a new lens!! the 75-300 now never focus' on the EM1, never hunts and provides great images.

    It and the Panny 100-300 are unpolished diamonds in the m43 lens lineup.

    Great photos......

    It is a great little lens. I kept thinking about selling mine but I never do. My reasoning is if I ever needed to travel really light and wanted 300mm of reach it would be perfect. I have not used it since getting my EM1 (I got the 50-200 SWD at the same time) and now I have the ZD 150mm ƒ2.0 and it's all I use. Just can't part with the 75-300 because it does take great photos and is so small for the reach it provides.

    I have the same lenses you do, and they certainly are a step up imagewise. But the 75-300 is near enough for travel and 'opportunist' shots you would otherwise miss because you have left the big glass at home.
    Thanks for commenting :)

    Must have been a great experience to see these animals in their natural habitat Don. No Gannets? ;)

    Fine images. Underrated lens. Thought I'd sell mine when I got the 100-400,but when I travel it and the 9-18 and EP5 are the perfect travel kit me for me.

    Hi Henk, long time no see! I'm glad to see from your images that you are still the delicate light, flat countryside master :)
    The gannets did not make it this time......but they are starting to come back.
    All the best,
    Don

    Hi Don,
    I've seen Mrs B's work in the past, and she is quite the accomplished photog!
    Kudos to her from me!
