    Hi all,

    Would like some views on the above 2 whether it would be worth to change?

    I have ZD70-300+mmf1 which is slightly longer, and heavier than the Pany 100-300. I like the 70-300 for zoo trips, but find it little soft at longer zoom ends, and the AF is not so fast. I am wondering about Pany's AF and sharpness vs ZD. I will lose the macro capability of the ZD as well. So I'm weighing the options. I see some nice images on this forum on the Pany and looks impressive so far. Pls share your views. Thanks!:smile:
