Hi rsh, yes they are, I already have the 300f4, but am not 100% on the em1-2 as of yet, so have arranged the TEST and WOW. If for some reason the em1-2 is not what I want I might put the 300f4 up for sale, thus using the Olympus for more normal use.
The 300f4 combined with the em1 that I have is a little disappointing for bird photography especially BIF. It's not the lens at fault it's the em1. For (normal photography it's great) but if I want to nail the shot I tend to rely on my 7d2s. The frustrating focus system on the Om1 at time drives me nuts.
I will post my findings after the Test.
Kind regards.

Let us all know how you get on... my MKi BiF photos are getting better with practice and the number of complete failures is reducing, but I'm still getting completely missed opportunities as the damn thing won't focus...

I've held off from the Mkii so far, to see how others get on, or to have a go myself before either taking the plunge with the Mkii or jumping ship for a very expensive bazooka of a lens and a 35mm format camera... Will look for a local test and WOW retailer...

My house is within view of the A14 (lucky me) so it is very likely you were within sight of me!

Not been out trying to get the Bluethroat

It's a free way to test drive new Olympus equipment.
I've always been tempted but have managed to resist as I know I'd end up buying :)
