Bear in mind that the M4/3 100-400 gives a field of view equal to 200-800mm, significantly more than an APSC 300 or 400.

Actually the 32 MP M6ii with its very high pixel density will provide more reach than any of those 20 MP M43 cameras with the same focal length lens mounted.


Barely.  The 20mp sensors are 5184 X 3888.  If we crop that region out of the M6 II sensor, the total crop factor is 2.07X.  A 300mm lens that gives you a 600mm field of view on a m4/3 camera would provide a 621mm field of view on the M6 II with the same number of pixels.  This would be using an area smaller than a m4/3 sensor.

If we go the other way and maintain the 2X crop factor on the same sensor area, we would have 21.9 megapixels.

While the pixel densities may be comparable, the lens weights are not.  The Panasonic 100-300mm f/4-5.6 OIS weighs 520 grams.  The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 weighs 710 grams, and that is before you add the 150 gram EF adapter.
