Thanks for the info and suggestions. I didn't know that the Oly 100-400 takes the 1.4x TC .

I really have to watch the weight unfortunately, as well as the body-lens balance. I'm recovering from two different cancers and major operations in the past three years and my strength and stamina are definitely waning. I don't want to use tripod. Love to wander and seek out birds.

If you want light, go for an Olympus camera & the 75-300mm zoom. So long as you have bright daylight & good handholding techniques it's fine.

The lightest camera would be an M10 Mark II or IV. Best value would be a used M1 Mark II.
