m43 vs DX wildlife rigs - size comparison

I quite like the D7500/Nikkor 200-500mm combo for wildlife work. But its a big rig and rather ungainly for this aging wanderer. Currently trying out a G9/PL100-400mm and liking it a lot so far.

Panasonic effective FOV=200-800mm, Nikon effective FOv=300-750mm

Nikon rig weighs 6 lbs-15 oz.  Panasonic rig weighs 3 lbs-14 oz.

Image quality seems very similar between the two lenses at full extension and wide open. AF also seems comparable between the two rigs although I'm not a BIF thus haven't compared that practice. I'm shooting the Panasonic at similar shutter speeds to the Nikon so I'm thinking the stabilization efficacy is in the same ballpark.

Its early yet but I can see myself transitioning from the Nikon rig to the Panasonic rig quite happily for what I do.
