You haven’t convinced me to convince you to switch away from M43.

Yeah. That’s where I’m struggling to. But when I look at a Z7 with 50mm 1.8 compared to my E-M1.3 with 25mm f1.2...and similar S line of Nikon glass...I start to wonder...what am I still doing in m4/3 land? I’m not upset with the images my Oly gear produces when I’m in good light. However, once dusk hits the quality drops significantly - Especially if I’m doing wildlife where I have to have high shutter speeds.

This is where having a FF might be beneficial. I can keep my gear small and lightweight with the S line of glass. When I need longer reach I can whip out a 70-200mm f2.8 + TC and f5.6 and have the similar reach as my m4/3 telephoto lenses - especially if I can crop into the subject with a higher mp camera (like the Z7/Z7II).

Or am I thinking about that wrong?

The 70-200 with a 2xTC would be 400mm and 42mp with a Z7. Cropped to DX size would be 600mm and 20mp. Cropped to m4/3 would be 800mm and 10mp.

Alternatively, your Oly 100-400 has an equivalent FOV of a 200-800 on FF and 16/20mp (depending on body).

So, you'd need an 80mp FF sensor for a 400mm lens to give you the same resolution/reach as a 20mp m4/3 sensor with a 400mm lens.
