    Micro 4/3 What Do You Use MFT For?

    My short answer is I use Mu-43 for photography, my main system. I mainly have Olympus gear and a little Panasonic. I like the size, weight and output. What I can hand hold including using a monopod i doubt i could do with a bigger system. I recently purchased a Fuji X-T4 & Tamron 18-300, so far...
