E-M1 + 50-200mm + MMF3 for wildlife action?

I have just got the E-M1 and is getting lenses for wildlife action photography.

My thoughts are to choose betweeen the Panasonic 100-300mm and the Olympus 50-200mm + MMF3 adapter.

My shooting conditions are wildlife in rather damp situations, low light (dawn or dusk) and unpredictable compositions. Think of deer, moose, wildbore in the woods.

For reach the Pana lens gives me 200-600mm and the Oly 100-400mm. Perhaps the longest reach is not critical. The Oly has got very good Reviews and is one stop faster and can now be had used for the same price as the Pana lens new. What about difference in AF?

Please, let me know your thoughts and if you have own experience with the Oly lens. I have had the chanse to try the Pana lens myself and is very intrigued by the Oly.
