Is there a REALLY effective way to get more Zoom from a Pany 100-300mm?

I have the Olympus 75-300, not the Panasonic 100-300 but the same applies: Mild temperatures and overcast weather without a lot of wind is best, but of course you don't always have that option...

The turbulence in the air is what causes most of the image quality degradation. These lenses are equivalent to 600mm on a full frame camera. That's a serious telefocus lens.--

Slowly learning to use the Olympus OM-D E-M5.

Sorry,  the 300mm doesn't give you the reach of a 600mm just because you put it on m43. It has the same angle of view of a 600mm on ff,  but the focal length is 300mm.
