Why go to a MFT when today's APC mirrorless camera body and lens combination are the same size or smaller than the current high performance MFT?

Hmmm... is there an APC system that reaches out to 800mm and weighs under 4 pounds?

Richard, You almost made my point. I coincide that as lenses get faster the size and weight advantage of mirrorless vs APC disappears however, you're still left with a larger sensor in the APC and I have always believed that sensor size rules.

I agree completely, and were it not for the size/weight factor, I would use one of the big Sigma Zooms on my Sony -- one reason being to provide more cropping room with the larger sensor.

However, as long as I can get fairly close to wildlife I am not dissatisfied with the resolution of the smaller sensor.
