Gimbal Head for Wildlife Photography

A question for Olympus wildlife shooters:

All of my friends using DSLR cameras with long lenses (typically Canon 100 - 400 mm or 400 mm), seem to recommend using a gimbal head on a tripod for wildlife.

I currently use EM1 mk 2 with 40-150 mm PRO + 1.4 TC but hoping for Olympus to bring out a 100 - 400 in the near future. I like the flexibility of zooms so the 300 / f4 PRO would be a non starter for me.

I quite like the freedom of hand holding this kit, particularly when tracking animals, but I can see the advantages of a tripod / gimbal when photographing a fairly static animals or birds.

I was wondering how you guys approach your wildlife photography ?

Any advice appreciated - many thanks
