Re: M4/3 for birding

If you are really serious about bird photography the best choices are the Panasonic G9 with the PL100-400/4.0-5.6, or the E-M1 MkIII or E-M1X with any of the following lenses: 100-400/5.0-6.3, 300/4.0 with the MC14, or the 150-400/4.5.

For the birding I do I find that 300mm doesn't provide enough reach.

The AF in the E-M1 MkIII is improved enough that it is worth the extra cost over the E-M1 MkII.
