Has anyone tried the new Olympus with longer telephoto lens? If so is the auto focus better than with the OMD E5?

you really can find more user reports @ dpreview forums (both m43 and Olympus dSLR) and specific m43/43 forums.

I have read several of those reports (unclear) but I was (and still am) looking for user experience from folk with good knowledge like those who come to this site.

Ok, here is where things go crazy.  I have a friend who dropped by with one of the Platinum 300 2.8's with an adapter.   The darn thing took great photos.  Seriously I think this is an awesome camera for folks that are tired of lugging around on travel, say a D800E and a Mark III.  Every lens I tried worked so great.  I suggest getting one of the fastest chips, past a class 10 but if you do it works great.

What is a Platinum 300?   Do you mean a four thirds olympus 300 2.8?   And if so do you get a chance to check to the focus on continuous tracking a subject?

Thanks

Sorry, yes the 300 2.8 from the 4/3 collection.  Friend has a number of the lens and the 150 was good also.

Sorry to be the Camera Name Police, but the name of the camera you are asking about is the E-M1, the E-1 was Olypuses first interchangeable lens DSLR, released in 2003.  About 5 Mpix if I recall.

Anyway, a number of people have posted about their experience with full 4/3 glass on the E-M1, on the 4/3 photo forums, including the longer glass:
