Your second shot is a good example of what I am talking about. Yes you have a BIF but in my opinion there is too much noise in the image. Example is under the wing. Just to get 1/800 which for a lot of birds is too slow, you had to crank the ISO up to 1250. It's because there is not suitable lens for birding unless all of your shots are at close range. Can't really do that in the wild. A 300mm lens at 6.8 will have difficulty focusing when the light is low, I've tried it and had to send the lens back. It just would not work. Not so say you can't pull out some shots, but as a system the EM-5 falls way short.
