I wonder how the performance stacks up against a current vintage lens of that focal

A question that may be moot in practical use.
The great equalizer is the soft filter effect of air movement.
Testing 300 mm lenses on a utility pole about 40 m. away, it was sort of possible to see how they compared, but I had to
be careful to look at several parts of the images. Air movement had a very obvious effect that varied across the frame.
Later testing the OM 600/6.5 against other lenses on a test target, I worked @ 40 ft. on a milder day. No obvious air
I more recently posted shots with the Oly 100-400 and MC14. At about 20 ft., I got quite sharp images. At longer
distances, the detail just isn't there.
One might take out this OM 350/2.8, Nikon and Canon 400/2.8 lenses and find no difference in shots of things such as
wildlife at anything other than quite close distances.
