4/3 for wildlife
May 29, 2012

I just discovered this particular forum. Am seeking a lightweight alternative to my Canon 5D w/400mm L -for wildlife. Its too bulky for longs hikes into rough terrain. I just tested the Sony NEX7 with kit lens. Surprisingly sharp & noise-free. A little heavy & expensive with the 70-300. Am considering the Panasonic GX1, GF5 with 100-300mm lens. A good value, but I am concerned about lens build, and system IQ. The DPR gallery for the GX1 has some very soft images (esp. man with goatee: http://www.dpreview.com/...046?inalbum=panasonic-lumix-dmc-gx1-review-samples )

Anyone here using the GX1 with 100-300mm for wildlife? BIF?

Anyone have experience with Sony AND Panansonic?

Thanks!
