For MANY years, my longest lens was 200mm. There was so much I wanted
to photograph with a longer telephoto but couldn't. So wildlife and
most sports were a bit out of reach. Now I have the lenses, but not
the desire. But I do find myself very frequently shooting landscapes
at 300mm or more (equivalent).

The lowly Lumix G 45-150 appears to be much sharper on the E-M5ii than
on the GX85. I haven't fully vetted the lenses out yet. But on
Saturday I enjoyed the long hike with the E-M5ii and three Lumix G
lenses. It's amazing how much happier I am when I'm not trying to lug
15 pounds of camera gear on a 13+ mile hike in the mountains.

Even the lowly E-1 does remarkably well in this regard, as long as the
image is processed with a modern converter.
