Default Changing to micro four thirds

After much deliberation I've decided to change from Canon to Panasonic MFT. Lugging my Canon gear about had become a chore, making my photography less enjoyable (old age catching up on me). I've recently bought a Panasonic G80 with a 12-60mm kit lens (24-120 FF equivalent) and a 100-300mm zoom (200-600 FF equivalent). The difference in weight is incredible. I've already sold my Canon 70D + Sigma 150-600mm and am in the process of selling the rest of my Canon gear. Currently I'm part exchanging my Canon 100mm macro for the Olympus 60mm macro.

Still on the learning curve with the new gear, but I'm pleased so far.

I've attached a pic of a Wheatear take in Portugal week before last with the new gear:
