Olympus 300mm F4 Problems anyone?

For those of you who have had the Olympus 300mm F4 since it was introduced:

1 Are there any issues with the lens / primarily build quality, and if so, what problems have you had.

2. Did you have to send the lens back for service at any time, and do you still think that it is worth the money?

My reasons for asking, is that at some point in the near future, I will be deciding to buy the E-M1 MK2 along with the lens (300mm) and it might just be me, but somehow Olympus Pro lenses looks very frail to me. This might not be the case at all, but they look too pretty, and appears to be prone to only gentle use. For the kind of money that they are going for, I need to know that it can take some rough treatment , not that I ever abuse my gears, but just in case.
