I am now using a pair of Olympus E-M1X cameras, with the 40-150f2.8 and
the 300mm f4, plus the 1.4 teleconverters. For years I have been using
Nikon DSLR's, with 300/400/500/600 primes as primary lenses. As
difficult as it is to say, I think Mirrorless is finally catching up
with AF, and the viewfinders don't look like grainy videos. The weight
difference is significant. What used to weigh 20lbs or so, I can now
accomplish with about 5 lbs of gear, quality surprises me.
Feel free to contact me off list, I'll be happy to pass on all the info
I have and research I did.
I did see the other post re: the Sony A9. Great camera, the reason I
did not go that direction or the Nikon Z6/Z7 route was to gain the
size/weight advantage of micro 4/3rds.
