Olympus for M43 Birds in Flight (BIF)
2

Unfortunately, for moving subjects, Panasonics Depth from Defocusing (DfD), is not yet up to the level of nearly all other systems Phase Detect Auto Focus (PDAF).

Please see this: https://mirrorlesscomparison.com/best/mirrorless-cameras-for-birds-in-flight/

Olympus models with PDAF are the only MFT cameras in the top 10 (7-10) for BIF.

I've seen great results from Panasonic cameras but if you want the best hit rate for BIF, look at Olympus E-M1 II, E-M1X (probably too big), E-M5 III, and E-M-1 III.

Of course, if your birds are stationary or stuffed then your choices broaden.
