In doubt: Switch from Fuji X-T30 to MFT?

Greetings, first post on dpReview so please be gentle

I currently have a Fuji X-T30 with some wonderful primes (18 f2, 23 f2, 35f1.4) plus a few other lenses (zooms and manual macro).  Really love the system, pictures are great, but recently I have started enjoying using longer zooms for some nature shots - birds and the like.

That's when cost and weight factor heavily (pun intended) in which path to take.  I see some "reasonably" priced MFT long zooms that are small and light, very attractive for walking around.

I'm not a pixel peeper and a few years back was having loads of fun with a GX85 and a used Olympus 75-300mm, so that should provide some idea as to my level of expectation.  Mostly travel (hopefully soon), portraits, macros and family shots - simple stuff (and no interest in video), and prints are limited to travel books no larger than 11" x 17".

Just wondering if anybody out there has made a similar switch and if there were any regrets.  Thing is, I really do like the Fuji system and have been pretty happy with its performance and output (and to be honest I do worry about the reduced subject/background separation for things like portraits in mft).

Thank you for any advice!
