Any reason to wait for the Oly 100-400 rather than the Pana?

The Olympus 100-400 f/5-6.3 is not out yet. The Pana 100-400 f/4-6.3 is out.

I have an E-M1ii. Is there any reason why I should prefer the Oly lens to the Pana? From the specs, the Pana is lighter, and there is no estimated date I can see for the Oly 100-400 to ship... any reason why it would be superior for bird photography?

I am not talking about the 150-400 PRO, btw, which is far heavier and more expensive.

Many thanks!
