m43 (probably gx7) or superzoom /bridge camera (probably fz1000)


I have been reading reviews and followed camera news for a while now! However, I'm still mot sure about the choice of my next camera.

i'm quite tempted by having a m43 which could act both as a smaller and more handy camera but also with the flexibility to put on a tele lens and shoot landscape/ wild life. I kind of decided to buy a gx7 and then a 100-300 mm lens with a tele extender. Then I could have up to 600 mm I guess. Any comments on how such a setup performs?

I know it is two quite different cameras. I come from a panasonic fz18 where I have liked the zoom capability. However image quality lacks behind. This would be my first interchangeable lens camera if I go with the m43 option.

Any comments / input to what I should consider before deciding for my next camera?

Is the image quality of m43 twice as good as the bridge camera?

How challenging would the m43 setup be shooting moving objects eg birds?

Thanks for your help.

best regards, Asger
