Thought I’d pass this along for your 4/3 site. I do nature photography and videography using both the Sony and M4/3 systems. (Sony A1 + 200-600) / (GH6 + Panasonic 100-400 and the Canon 60mm f/4 II lens)

Although I much prefer the Sony system for stills, I have been enjoying the Panasonic GH6 for filming wildlife. With the 2X cropped sensor I find this as an advantage for getting close-in while filming in 4k. Add the Canon 600mm f/4 to the mix and now you’ve got an effective focal length of 1200mm. This comes in handy when there’s a need to get closer to your subject. Film in 5.6k and you can crop down to 4k without any resolution loss. It’s hard to beat!

Here’s a video that was taken with the GH6 and the Canon 600mm f/4. There is no autofocus but for this kind of shot, there was no need for it.

OM Digital Japan announced it will stop taking preorders on the new 150-400mm because they cannot keep up the production. This is the Google translated press text:

    Therefore, we will suspend the acceptance of orders from domestic retailers and our online shop after June 23, 2022, until a stable supply is expected. For customers who have already placed an order, we will deliver it as soon as the product is ready. We will inform you when the order will be resumed as soon as it is confirmed.
