Debating on second system or investing more in what I have

Im trying to convince myself that mFT is "good enough" and that I dont need a second system. Most CAF issues can be fixed by moving up to an EM1.2, but the high iso handling is where im having some trouble, especially where IBIS isnt helping you.

Looking at cameras like the D750 and the A7III, they show a rather significant difference in higher ISO handling, about 2 stops, sometimes more. On my EM5.2 I dont really like most of the results I get shooting at ISO3200, let alone 6400, but some of the shots from the above cameras hold quite a bit of detail at ISO as high as 12,800+

Looking at the Nikon camp, a D750 + 24-120 F4 + 100-400 4.5-5.6 + a 2x TC is about $4500, Sony is above $6k A7III + 24-105 F4 + 100-400 + 2xTC

Considering what I already have invested, to get near that performance im paying about $3250 to add the EM1.2, 40-150 pro and the TC to my kit, its even more if I decide I want the 300mm F4.

Im wondering if theres a more sensible solution to what im trying to do but im very unfamiliar with DSLRs and havent dabbled much in the nuances of each model. I know CaNikon is bringing new mirrorless to the table that may be worth waiting for, but im curious what my options are now for about $3200 (if I only consider the telephoto side of things) Something like a used 5D and 100-400 + TC or similar.

Im not here to start a mFT war, im looking from honest opinions.
