Just my take.....(!)

Edit: And my little 7.5mm fisheye....
I was thinking about adding a converter too, but then I would be in the same situation swapping out lenses in the field... but the quality of images look fab, so maybe I can crop an image...

Oh I am so confused lol

The converter only fits 2 lenses and those 2 are not them!

The latter is quite good for a consumer grade lens, and very carryable. If you don't like changing lenses then maybe a second body (e.g. a used E-M5 ii is affordable and compact) for the 75-300. And maybe a prime or two for low light; e.g. Pan 20 1.7 - affordable, compact and quality.
Budget for lens isnt too much of an issue... I would rather spend once on quality than buy and sell until I get something i like. A second body... oh my that would be great but flights now have a weight limit for hand luggage which is why my Nikon no longer flies with me and am looking for a quality travel lens. The 12-100 will cover 2 of the Nikon lenses I take when holidaying in the UK, and at a fraction of the size and weight, and in the UK I have never really wanted the reach of a 400mm equivalent so maybe its just wanting that extra 100mm because its there!
