Re: M4/3 for birding

I decided to run a weight comparison of my M5iii with 100-400 and 1.4 TC against a Nikon Z6 with Sigma 100-600 and 2.0 TC.  The former is only two thirds the weight (3.8lbs to 6.0lbs), which shouldn't be a surprise, but the weight ratio was essentially identical.  The camera bodies represent 24% of the total weight.  I no longer feel at all bad mating my M5iii with the 100-400.
