Most of these pictures I've taken with my Olympus OM-D E-M1 4/3rds Mirrorless camera with a 75-300mm Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 II Lens. The camera is splash and dust proof but not the lens.

The other camera i have is a Sony Alpha A7 Mark II 24MP Full Frame Mirrorless Digital SLR Camera with a Sony 70-300mm G OSS Lens. Water resistant...or something.

Both camera settings i have set to function in way i want them to shoot with. Bit complicated, certainly not off the shelve settings both cameras allow extensive customization. Both are shooting with ISO 800 and center weighted Auto Focus with burst shooting so they take a minimum of three shots each time i take a photo, both have mode dial ('s) set with those settings so can turn on and shoot without adjusting anything.

The Olympus has a much preferred older Olympus version 3 firmware update in it (had issues with later firmware update) and be hard to source other than second-hand as new Olympus OM-D E-M1 digital mirrorless camera will have version four (4) firmware update pre-installed errr.
Both cameras have been superseded with later more expensive models i cannot advise on those, Au$2k and AU$2.8k.
The Olympus is better over distant, while the Sony is quite lot better close up and in low light, its heavier and quite clunky but ok. While the Olympus is lighter and much much better over long distant's. Olympus will easily auto focus on a high flying jet plane, it will capture far more detail than you can see with your eye...

DSLR cameras are not much good at taking bird photos, hopeless is probably a better description but probably quite a lot better than Mirrorless cameras taking Scenes / Landscapes etc.

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 camera and 75-300mm lens will do a pretty good job taking macro photos.
Sorry i couldn't offer simple answer.

If money is not short then probably if un-moving targets takes your fancy a $5k Canon Full Frame camera coupled with another $5k Lens can churn out really great photos like these

my olympus om-d e-m1 twice froze on me while taking pictures in light snow during the weekend and it shouldn't have, The camera supposed to be splash, dust and freeze proof so something wrong with it. To witt, thought i'd let you know that I just processed payments on new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II, the later model 20mpx camera.

You might also like to view this guys gallery on this:



that assisted my decision making mostly because he is clearly engaged in the same sought of interest.
