Choosing camera gear for wildlife photography is often a big decision because of the cost involved and also the possibility of getting locked into a particular platform. Olympus is unique in offering a very specific set of camera gear with pro-level features, ergonomics, and responsiveness. With it use of the smaller micro four-thirds sensor, it presents significant advantages for traveling and hiking because the lenses, especially those with greater focal lengths, are smaller and lighter than lenses with equivalent reach built for full-frame or APS-C sensors. However, as Adrian Cho points out in this video, there is a price to pay for using this smaller sensor, just as there is a price to pay when using a full-frame higher resolution sensor.
