In my continued testing (learning) of the 75-300 and E-M5 III for use as a light weight closeup for flowers and bugs, etc., I offer these two versions of the same image.... cropped and uncropped.

Excellent.
This shows just how well the 75-300mm can perform.
Looks like you'll have fun with that combo.
Thanks, the images that are possible with even the smaller, lower priced lenses from both Olympus and Panasonic continue to impress me. Sometimes it takes a bit of trial and error to coax the best from these lenses.... but it's in there.

Third time seems to be the charm with this lens for me. Definitely think using e-shutter/silent mode makes a difference on sharpness.

I'm finding some new appreciation for this lens. With the right focus technique on the EM5.3, I think I'm getting some pretty decent results.

I can't tell which to credit, the lens or the EM5iii, for keeping track of this raptor (eagle?) as it flew behind a tree.
