Just to add to the others comments, I agree about the desire for an updated 100-300. I have a G6 with 14-42ii, 45-150, and 100-300. I sold the 14-42 am in the process of upgrading to the 12-35 and 35-100. Since the pro lenses currently end at 100mm, I would like to see the updated lens start at 100 and maybe go up to 300-400mm at f4 constant. Weather sealing is a priority since this is a lens that I only use outdoors.

A 100-400mm f/4 would be a huge, heavy lens.  Look at the Canon and Nikon 200-400mm f/4 zooms.
