    I am just wading through all the pictures that I took during a fantastic 3-week holiday in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons NPs and Cody, Wyoming. I mostly used the 12-50 and the 75-300 with my new OM-D.

    I really don't know whether the Oly lens is better or worse than the Panny equivalent as I don't have both. However, I can say that it was a very workable rig with the OM-D and HLD-6 grip. I mostly used 'S' mode to keep the speed up to help with any camera shake and also to freeze motion where needed.

    Some images are here:

    Lower Falls, Yellowstone River:

    E-M5    ---    150mm    f/8.0    1/2500s    ISO 200

    Bison herd:

    E-M5    ---    264mm    f/8.0    1/500s    ISO 200


    E-M5    ---    75mm    f/4.8    1/500s    ISO 1000


    E-M5    ---    85mm    f/5.0    1/400s    ISO 3200

    Taking the Turn:

    E-M5    ---    117mm    f/5.3    1/400s    ISO 6400

    Yellowstone personified:

    E-M5    ---    300mm    f/8.0    1/800s    ISO 200

    Canary Springs:

    E-M5    ---    300mm    f/8.0    1/1600s    ISO 200

    Early morning, Oxbow Bend, Grand Tetons NP:

    E-M5    ---    140mm    f/5.6    1/250s    ISO 2500

    These are all OOC jpegs, given the much-derided auto enhance treatment in Aperture. I am still key wording and haven't done more than a basic initial run over possible selects and certainly no major pp. For basic web sharing and small printing you could waste a lot of time with a raw image (I have!) and not get significantly better results than the Oly jpeg and the A3.3 auto enhance. Large scale printing, ultimate picture quality etc - probably a different matter.

    Nice shots Andrew, and thanks for posting full size. I think the Canary Springs shows good sharpness at 300mm.
