Not this year, but most years I go for a week long trip to the American SW and I take my Gx8 or Gx85/Oly 9-18 & 75-300II. I am with my friends who are Reptile enthusiasts

and I try not to get in their way when I photograph. I've found the the 75-300II is a better landscape lens in the SW than the 9-18 which I used as a "normal lens" on the trip. Here is a sample of landscapes done with the 75-300II.

Another plug for the humble 75-300mm "kit" lens.
My favorite subject for lens testing is astro. Those star pin-points are murder on any lens, and shortcomings such as coma and CA are readily noticeable.

So here is my astro pic, the Lagoon and Trifid Nebulae, with the lens at 300mm, wide open. I am continually impressed with what that lens can achieve.

Whilst the feel of this lens is nothing to get excited about - it does betray its cheap build - for the money its optics really do deliver. Sure it's no 'Pro' but it does have the ability to surprise.

A robin decided to build her nest right above my hammock/beer drinking spot. She wasn't too happy with me when Friday 5:00 rolled around. Minimal processing on my phone.
