Olympus for M43 Birds in Flight (BIF)

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.
