Mirrorless question of the month:
I love shooting with my Olympus OMD EM5 MkII and the small lenses. However, recently I have been trying to put together a kit for birds and wildlife. That has led me to a very surprising discovery. Why does an EM1 Mk II & a 300mm f4 PRO cost $1200 more than a D500 & 200-500? Or, $1650 more than a Canon 7D MkII & 300mm f4? Shouldn't MFT systems cost less since they are a much smaller sensor requiring smaller image circle from the glass. On top of the cost, even the size doesn't make sense. For example, why does the Olympus 300mm f4 PRO measure and weigh as much or more than the Canon 300mm f4L IS that is built to cover full frame sensor size? I was also recently shocked by the Panasonic 200mm f2.8 that sells with a teleconverter for $3k! Meanwhile, Canon's excellent and proven 200mm f2.8L sells for $750. Sadly, this is pushing me away from mirrorless and back to DSLR due to the ridiculous pricing of mirrorless systems......
