Reading this thread, I just thought, a MC20 on my 40-150/2.8 is a cheaper option to the 100-400, with slightly less reach.
f/5.6 is not an issue during the day, and that is similar to the 100-400 at the long end anyway.
hmm, something to think about.
That's kinda what I've done, I sold my 100-300 (I became frustrated with it's af performance after using the 40-150) and was intending to get the Oly 100-400, but I could do without that bulk in my camera bag. The MC20 is therefore an option, but it isn't without compromise. At 300mm, f/8 yields better results.

I have both, MC14 and MC20. I have a feeling my MC20 is even sharper than my MC14, but I haven't done any systematic tests, only feeling. And my camera is the old EM1 original. Links to some of my FLICKR albums, where you can see pictures of small birds. Some through triple-class windows, all without tripod or monopod, but shut leaning or sitting. You can find focus-distances in EXIF, if you are interested in. I'm more than happy with that combo!
