mFT has it's strengths, but birding is not one of them. DSLR systems make getting good bird pictures so much easier, cheaper, and with proper lens choice lighter, it's not even funny....


I have an Olympus E-M1ii + 300mm f4 Pro and Nikon D500 + Sigma 500 f4 Sport. I use both for birding. 95% of the time it’s m43. The Nikon is for birds in flight in low light which is the one area I find it has an advantage that outweighs the other advantages of a mirrorless system.
