Great run through of the pros and cons.
I wasn't actually digging M43 out, but think that for the price this is as good an option as something like the E-M1 Mark II.
Its horses for courses, personally I'd rather a larger sensor over a smaller footprint, but others may not.
Whilst I'm still not overly convinced by the wildlife lens range for Sony's Mirrorless cameras, the just announced a6400 has some really great potential to be a very good birding camera.
Some of the highlights:

11 fps (full mechanical shutter)

Look forward to learning from some like-minded...
