I previously owned the Zuiko 180mm f2.8, 300mm f4.3 and 400mm f6.3 and sold each of them and replaced them with the faster Tamron SP lenses in these focal lengths. Both the 300 and 400mm Tamrons are heavier (they are also faster) however when on a tripod the extra speed is worth it. I own almost every Zuiko prime lens at 200mm or shorter, so I'm a big fan, however the Tamron SP series primes should not be over looked. Bill Barber
