What would be the next step up from the Panny 100-300mm on my OM-D??

I use an old MF Nikkor 400 3.5 on my EM5, where it works quite well. But... it's a whopper of a lens, weighs around 7 pounds, most of that in the massive 122mm objective lens.

The AI ED I take it ??

Been eyeing one up myself. Darn nice lens but a question if I can. Does it show any CA at all ??. Fairly easy to fix now days I know, but some have worse CA than others. Already using 300, 500 and 800, so a 400 could be handy at F/3.5.

All the best.

I'm eyeing one too -- I'm debating between E-M5 plus 400/3.5 and limiting myself to bird photography that can be done in manual focus, or Nikon D5200 and 300/4 and EC14 to get autofocus but with glass that's not as good.
