I went for a walk in a state park the other day with my wife. I specifically took the MFT w/100-400 rather than take my new a7Riii with the 150-600 Tamron. The Tamron has done well for me but it is heavy and I didn't take either tri- or monopods. If I was going out by myself specifically to shoot, I'd take it. It carries OK if you rotate the tripod mount ring to the topside of the lens and use it as a handle.

I get reasonable hand-held shots from it shooting at shutter speeds above 1/1000. The Sony version has no stabilization. I'll also shoot bursts to mitigate shake from pressing the shutter button.

thanks. the tip about bursts is helpful. 100-400 is another option too for me.
