Best telephoto zoom lens for Olympus om-d e-m5

I'm new to this forum and also m43 cameras. I just bought the Olympus omd and also the panny 14mm (cheap on ebay) and the panny 20mm. I'm looking to buy a telephoto zoom lens, but confused by the number of options. I'm looking for something with great image quality to use for long distance scenery, zoom in on certain areas of large European churches or kid's sporting games. I would mostly use it for the long end of the zoom but still want good quality for wide shots if I need to take pictures quickly before I could switch back to the 20mm. I would prefer 300 to $600 range but could go up to a thousand if they are that much better. Any thoughts on IQ for the lenses listed below? Other option is the Canon 70-300mm on ebay and get an adapter (will have to MF). Thank you!!

Panny 45-200mm
Panny 45-175mm
Panny 45-150mm
Olympus 40-150mm
Olympus 75-300mm
Panny 100-300mm
Olympus 14-150mm
Panny 14-140mm

Olympus OM-D E-M5
