I don't doubt that the observed photographer has the best gear and the skills and practice to get great bird images, but to bring out feather detail requires more than gear; you have to also have great light. That just comes with being out a whole lot in ideal conditions - and in recognizing what those conditions are.

This 100%

I've used high end M43, APSC, and FF gear and got shots that were in focus and just muddy when it came to feather detail. Very frustrating.

But when the light is right. WOW. The system didn't matter as much. Yes they all have advantages and disadvantages, but I've got good feather detail with M43, APSC and with FF.
