After the last news and a moment of photographic depression, I decided to take my EM1mk2 and 75-300 out for some birds.

Just a few examples to show why I still love this small, light and relatively cheap lens.
There are lenses much more expensive that don't have such a smooth bokeh. You just must know its limits.

First couple of tries with the 75-300 which I purchased as a refurbished lens from the Olympus US site (looks liked new, and might be). I bought this little guy to use as an alternative to my much larger PanLeica 100-400 for pairing with my E-M5 III for a lightweight zoom for flowers, bugs and butterflies at botanical gardens, etc. Still getting the settings down but I'm pretty pleased with these two from my first outing.

I started with this lens then purchased the Panasonic 100-400.
I pulled the Oly out of retirement for a short while and this is one of the better shots.
It certainly can perform in right conditions, but the Panasonic isn't immune from mediocracy.

I think this lens is the best m43 super telezoom value when you consider what it offers vs the price. I can't recommend it enough.

I don't have any shots handy but I've enjoyed looking at everyone else's.

just two SOOC images I took last week at 75mm/6.3 and at 208mm/6.3 both at 1/1600, auto WB (no idea why iPad passes no EXIF data to the forum when posting SOOC RAWs but does pass full EXIF data when touching the slightest detail like applying minimal cropping to the images)

subjects sunbathing approximately 450 meters away, lots of thermals

the best feature of this ”good enough” lens is that I can always have it with me in the bag on errand runs as to shoot when opportunity shows up without mumbling about the extra weight when opportunity does not show up

Exactly! I've even had it with me mounted on a 2nd camera on hikes. Quick access in case you spot a flighty critter on the way :)

One of the lenses that's keeping me in the system :)
