I am Olympus casual shooter that would like to have telephoto lens with more reach (the longest lens I have now is 14-150 F4-F5.6). I am considering between the 2 lenses (100-400 vs 40-150+TC). Do you think which option can deliver "better" image/AF/etc.?

I suggest you consider the excellent Olympus 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 II also. Smaller, lighter, and less expensive, but very good quality. I also have the Olympus 14-150mm and they are a nice pair for times you want something much longer.

If you are considering 75-300, I will suggest you to look at Panasonic 100-300 MK2 as well. Similar size and optical quality, but the OIS is really important in super tele shooting. I switched from the 75-300 to 100-300 and I think the OIS definitely make the difference, plus it's weather sealed too.
