Switch completely to m43. I love my Canon 100-400mkll too much. I've looked at the Olly and Panny range of lenses and despite what many have said, and from the images that I have seen, I don't think that they stack up to my Canon, despite being more expensive. That said, I would still like to invest more in the Olympus m43 system as I like the (lack of) weight, the focus bracketing/stacking and other features. I have two ME10's mk l and mk ll and am thinking about buying a metabones T Adapter so that I can utilise the Canon lens. I also like the fact that it would give me a reach of 800mm and even more with my 1.4 extender.

Has anyone used this combination and what are your impressions?

Nobody? Anybody using any canon lens via metabones to m43?

I don't think the 'reach advantage' exists. Maybe at base ISO but as you go up in ISO, 7D2 would make better results.

There was a rare case of internet consensus when discussing the reach advantage of a 1D4 (1.3 crop, 16 MP) vs 1DX, (FF, 18MP).
Consensus reached was that at higher ISO the 1DX was better. At ISO 100 the 1D4 had some advantage, ie reach advantage.
Some judged the point where 1DX became superior was ISO400, others ISO800 and some at ISO1600.
So by ISO 1600 it was agreed the 1D4 had no reach advantage (despite obviously winning the 'pixels on target' race) and the 1DX made better results.

The AF with an adapter will not be as good and you won't have lens IS, only body IS which is inferior at longer focal lengths.

If you love your 100-400 I think you have one of the best bodies to use it already.

Thanks for your input Dave. I believe that I can use the lens IS if I switch off the body IS. I know it's contrary to the science but my perception (surprisingly) is that at iso 800 and below, the noise from the Em10 is actually less than from the Canon 7Dmkll. I haven't yet shot above that iso. The reach is for the "pixels on target" in that at longer distances, I am finding it harder to hold that centre focus square/spot meter on target. I'm thinking that the reach will make that target bigger and easier to hit/remain on. The decrease in overall weight will also assist.
