Rented an Oly 300 f4 and TC to compare with my PL 100-400

And I was really wanting to like it and possibly buy it, but I find myself enjoying it but not thrilled enough to plunk down the $$. Has anyone else had this experience? If you want to see my PL vs Oly pix, go here

The last 15 photos were taken with the 300+TC.

I like the extra stops, the ease of focusing, the cleaner output, but to see the differences, I have to zoom in to 2x. For my purposes, shooting and sharing on FB etc, I suspect I will save my shekels!

I'd really like to know if it's just me or if others share this opinion.

I so wanted to be blown away and I just wasn't!
