Panasonic 100-300 II sharpness @ ~150-250?

A lot of the reviews focus on it not being the sharpest at 300mm but for my uses where for 10+ years the longest lens I've had is a 450mm equivalent in FF I would be fine with not using every last bit of zoom range in the lens.  So I was wondering how it is in the rest of the range?  Where's the sweet spot and how big of a difference is it?

I've gone with Panasonic zooms for their smaller size which due to the zoom rings going in opposite directions has basically locked me in.  Since I'm shooting performances and that quick mistake which happens when trying to zoom in or out could cost me the moment.
