So Peter

For $1150 I can get the 60d or T4i and a 55-250is
That gets 400 FOV

Where and what price can I buy an M43 that gets 400 FOV with better IQ?

$236 and weight 380g. this is a 45-200mm with FOV of 70-400mm on M43.

$600, weight 520g. that's 100-300mm lens and 200-600mm FOV on M43. I have seen many photos from this lens on birds, relative still animals etc. They are sharp but macro contrast is not as good as 100-400L on 60D for example.

$549, weight only 336g

G3+100-300 zoom cost about the same but lots more reach and IQ is at least as good if not slightly better than 55-250 on T4i.

Now you can calculate weight to figure out which one is lighter
