Re: Bird Photographer’s review of the E-M1X

He says it is lightweight. Well compared with FF ca**n and their 600 mm lens, it is. But it is heavier that the EM12 MK 2.
Or am I just nit picking?

I did play with one at Cambrian Cameras earlier on in the year. It is a beast, but I must admit, I am drawn to it when using the 300mm Pro. Reading reviews by folk like Andy Rouse, https://www.andyrouse.co.uk, https://www.facebook.com/wildmanrouse/ don't help much either.
