    Ok, I don't own this lens yet, but I'm seriously considering buying one.
    Can people post their photos taken with this lens? Some samples made their way into the 75-300 f/4.8-6.7 Image Thread (https://www.mu-43.com/showthread.php?t=15775), but it would be better if we could separate them out as it has been done with other lenses.

    Beautiful pic! Great colours.

    Can you tell me if you have used the lens for any faster moving subjects and if so , how you find the autofocus speed ?

    Also , in the same price range you can also pick up the Panasonic 100-300 which I'm sure you are aware of. It is half a stop faster, but supposedly slightly slower to autofocus. Have you compared both?

    I'd love to see some more pics that you got with this lens.

    Wow, that's a great shot Jordan!! Is this a crop, or the full frame? How close were you?

    Received this lens on Friday. I'm not sure it's fast enough (AF speed) for action - still evaluating - but for static scenes/studio work it's great.

    My first efforts of the moon. Just checking the M1s DTC out. At 300mm with DTC on and tripod mounted - IBIS off. I generally think this lens is too soft long, but this looks ok.

    Formula 1 practice yesterday in Austin. My panning is a work in progress... I took several hundred shots and only have a few worth sharing. All of them were prefocused and then 10fps bursts.

    First three @ 75mm

    I'm heading back for the race tomorrow so hope to have more to share.

    Nices pictures but before the race, i think you have to improve the sharpness of yours pictures especially the cars.

    Thanks for your feedback. Panning is just something that's going to take more practice than I've put in. I did better Sunday but the keeper rate was still incredibly low with a shutter speed of 1/200 or slower. Here's a few from race day.
