There might be another option for you - an image of the upcoming 40-150 f4 Pro from that rumors site...

I don't really NEED the 40-150 f/2.8 , but I should would love to have it. I find the Panasonic 100-400 to be very heavy, don't like the stiff zoom control with extending barrel and f/6.3 when it zooms. It does, however, have excellent image quality. A constant f/2.8 would be delightful. I took the 100-400 to Costa Rica and with f/6.3 rain forest photography was nearly impossible.

You should watch some of the YouTube videos on the 40-150 f/2.8.


Not interested in f/4 max aperture.  Too slow for low light work.
