Oly 75-300 version 2 and Panny 100-300 - Use on Tripod?

Hi

I'm toying with the idea of buying one or other of these lenses. I plan to use it on a tripod for at least some of the time and read today that the Panny was less than stable when fully extended. Could anyone who owns either or both please comment on this observation. I want the lens mainly for the long end so need to know if it will do the job.

If anyone cares to offer a view on which is sharper at the long end I would also be  interested - reviews appear mixed - a bit like the numerous threads here on the subject.
