Olympus 300mm+1.4 vs Panasonic 100-400

I have the Panasonic 100-400 and wondering if anyone has experience with it and the Oly 300mm with the 1.4 TC. i'm sure there is some pilot error involved with the Panasonic, but I don't find any pop in the images with it. I have the Olympus 40-150 and love the results, so I'm wondering if the 300mm + 1.4TC will achieve the same impact. I also don't care for the zoom action on the Panasonic. It feels heavy and slow.

I know i'll be giving up the zoom option with the Panasonic, but if I'm interested in the long end, e.g. 400mm Panasonic vs. 300mm Olympus + 1.4TC, which would you choose?

Thanks!
