Olympus m4/3 75-300mm

Finely got out with my new 75-300mm on my OMD to see what it can do, I was surprised by how good it is with the macro shots (I used to use the 4/3's 70-300mm for these)

Thanks for looking

Oh dear, looking at your shotsis tempting me to splash out, I had one on the E5 but seldom used it owing to the weight but maybe! on the ep5?

You should try it out much better size wise than the 4/3's one :-)

Re: Olympus m4/3 75-300mm

It is much more compact & lighter than the 70-300 lens & especially if you've modified the lens hood off the 40-150 lens (use an after market one like the JJC) to fit like I have done (it can also reverse) instead of the over-sized 70-300 lens hood that is specified for it.

Those are better results than I expected.

(Ross, what's that ear muff doing on the side of your camera?)

You're welcome to try it as an ear muff if you like, but I've now replaced it with the GS-3 Grip Strap (for E3, 30 & 5) instead. I suppose two of them would keep both your ears warm if that floats your boat.
