    If weight is an issue, you might want to consider an E-M5 and Panasonic 100-300mm. It's smaller and lighter than the 100-400m and the image quality is decent.

    It's expensive now, but I'd wait for the Christmas sales for the EM-1 Mark II.

    My local camera store is an Olympus dealer but they don't stock anything. I ordered it all thru them.

    That seems rather slow for a dealer, have you been chasing them for a delivery date? I normally get things ordered from China etc. within 5 weeks, but if they are a dealer they should be getting it from the distributor in your country, which would normally be expected to have stock & have fresh deliveries fairly frequently.

    I haven't used the 300mm, but the 12-40 is such a sweet lens!! I think you'll like it.

    Be advised that a smaller sensor won't increase "reach." That is function of focal length. What it will do is produce a cropped version of the subject as it would have been rendered with a larger sensor. You can do exactly the same thing with a larger sensor by cropping in the computer. The larger the sensor, the better the overall performance.
