Personally, I went for the 100-300 without hesitation since I have a Pany body (G1) and was planning to upgrade to another (GH2 or GH3) until the E-M5 came around. However, I would probably have made the same choice even if I had had a body with IBIS. I am very happy with the lens, particularly after the firmware upgrade in late January which improved the efficiency of the OIS considerably.

I just made that choice. If both lenses were the same price it would have made it harder but I'd have ended up with the same decision. It's unfortunate for the compared weight, but compromise is the name of the game. The slight edge in f-stop and IQ I thought was more valuable for what I have in mind for stressing its capability.
