Got my E-5 back - Lenses?


Today I got an E-5 and I am wondering what lenses I should get to get me enough reach for military aircraft air shows.

I will need at least 400mm (35mm Film) and it must be sealed.

I am thinking of ZD150 + EC14 / EC20 primarly.
50-200 SWD + EC14
35-100 + EC20 eventually

Main reason not considering the ZD300 or the 90-250 is the size and weight.

The walk will take me up to 2200m from 1500m. Walk is about 3hrs one way.

Olympus is offering me the ZD300 for rental.

Your opinions are welcome.

Thank you
