    I have a credit that expires soon and was toying with the idea of putting it towards an inexpensive lens. I don't have anything in the super-telephoto range and it seems like m43 has some decently priced offerings in this area.

    The Panasonic 100-300 is about a half stop faster but the Olympus 75-300 II is smaller and lighter. It seems like they both get good reviews. I pretty much only use Olympus bodies so I am not sure how valuable the OIS would be for me.

    Has anyone tried both these lenses and could comment on them?

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    I read through those threads. Looks like the AF is a bit better on the Oly as well. Seems like that is the way to go for me.
