    Has anyone used the above combo? If so, how has the experience been? I was originally thinking about picking Panny 100-300 but I've owned this lens in the past I wasn't too thrilled with it. Other than slightly slower on the long end, I've read mostly positive reviews of 75-300 II and that's why I'm considering picking it up.

    I think the biggest issue with the Oly is that it doesn't have IS. I have this lens and use it with Oly bodies. It really needs some good stabilization because of the long focal length and slow aperture. It works okay when using the Oly IBIS, but the GX8 IBIS isn't as good.
