?Opinions on the Panny 50-200 F2.8 to 4 if you have it

Having purchased the 12-45, I am considering buying the Panny 50-200 to use on the EM-1 II or EM-1X. I would match those two lenses for hiking with the hope of catching wildlife on certain hikes. I currently own and have used the Panny 35-100 F2.8 for about five years but it is not long enough for a lot of wildlife.

How does this lens stack up:

Image quality

Contrast and color compared to the 35-100

Best aperture range

AF-likely S-AF in a mountain setting

Handling feel and weight
