It sounds to me like you really have answered your own question. I am a primarily wildlife shooter and have the 100-300 for my GH2 and am very happy. One thing I have noticed is that if I have a bird sitting at say 15m/45feet distance and take 3 series of 3 shots (I use the medium burst rate on the GH2 which allows me to have a preview between photos) I will get 9 photos that are all kind of acceptable but one is usually sharper than the rest. Secondly, with this lens you need to focus on the head of a bird, if you focus on the nearest part of the body, then the eye usually looks unsharp which is disturbing.
