Thanks for posting.

Although I feel no need for FF because m4/3 works so well for travel, I think if I did get a FF camera it would probably be the new Nikon Z5 + Nikon 24-200mm and then add one fast prime lens. If the coronavirus turns out to make travel much more difficult in the future because of some airlines, hotels, etc. going belly up, harder to get visas, etc.

I imagine that the restrictions on travel. Will not be helping the beleaguered camera market as , special trips  exotic holidays and so on are often a motivator for new gear. For short flights around Europe wearing a mask would not be too big a concern . Not so sure I would want to take a long haul trip that way. Oh well Scotland is a small country but lots of beautiful locations so staying at home is not so bad

then I might have to think about shifting my focus to another photographic interest. Then FF might be something I would consider. Having said that, my m4/3 still satisfies most of the time. I had a recent thread where I looked at my Lightroom stats for all my m4/3 photos going back 8.5 years and very few were at higher than ISO 800 and over 80% were at ISO 200 or less, even with f4-5.6 lenses which I use the most.

I tend to use my m43 and FF as one kit , using each to its strengths . Though the fans of each format are not always complimentary to each other They work very well together . Not that you can't do video with FF but I find it more enjoyable and convenient with m43. My GX8 with 20mm combo is my favourite set-up ever and I would not part with it

Final output, perhaps a step too far

That looks quite good. I bet it would make a very nice, big print.

While it can't do magic , I have been quite impressed with Topaz gigapixel's capabilities
