Now I was left with the PL100-400 which I was finding is getting too heavy for me(old age + still some muscle weakness problems) and with the advent of the MC-20 I have decided to trade that in for a used 40-150 pro with 1.4X TC.

…..

Olympus 40-150F2.8 + 1.4x TC is almost exactly as heavy as Panasonic 100-400.

on the other hand, when I take the 1.4 TC off the difference is 760g vs 985g (and I do know I'm sacrificing reach to save weight )

Its all a matter of compromise and what makes sense to me may not to others, which is fine as I can only be worried about my requirements

So much to learn, so little time left to do it!
