I had the same problem when i bought (finally) the GH3.

I experienced the GH2 with 100-300 was not good enough for BIF.

Concidering all aspects (of course weight..) and hoping the GH3 would be better for it, i decided not to go for the combo you have.

After 2 months i can say that there is indeed a substantial improvement, but not on the level of the 7D (two of my birding friends have it, so i know what i'm talking about).

Hopefully panasonic will give us a 300mm (or 400), with the same quality as the X-lenses.

After all, i still would go for the GH3..
