Canon 7Dmark2 with 100-400mark2 with Canon 1.4V3 Tele-extender, or Panasonic 100-400 on the Oly em1-mark2 , both combinations being shot at 35mm equivalent of 800mm. thanks

If the photographer does his job, then the many people probably won't be able to tell the difference. Really, there are too many variables to definitively say one is always going to be better than the other. Both will require good technique and accurate exposure to get the best results.

If I had to choose one, I would pick the E-M1.2 + P/L 100-400.

While I have none of those five, if I had to choose, I think I would rather have the Canon lens minus the extender on the Olympus camera using a Kipon smart adapter or Metabones smart adapter. Unless you are ONLY going to use M43 that is.

Have owned both . I would choose the Olympus combo . The Canon 100-400mm II is a great lens but it doesn't do very well with the 1.4 for any kind of action. I have taken shots with the M1II 100-400 which are every bit as good as the 7D2 with half the weight

Olympus EM1.2 with 300 F4 and 40-150 pro with MC 14 extender (100-400)
I have used 7D2/100-400 and Olympus is as good as that in IQ. Much better for static animals, perched birds. And much light.

There are a ton of variables such as what ISO are we shooting at ? Handheld or locked down on a very stable tripod ? If handheld for how long have we been carrying the gear ?
Moving or static subject ? How much dynamic range does the scene have ? etc etc

I have the 80d with the 1.4iii and 100-400ii. The setup screams fast ai servo af for me no probs. Perhaps you did not use it correctly. Plus the 80d sensor is excellent.

The Canon probably still has better focus tracking, but anything else, I'd prefer the Olympus. Image quality is so close that it's not a deciding factor here, and with a tc on the Canon, you lose a stop anyway.

For BIF a Canon body with Canon glass is probably best. For everything else the Olympus is just as good or better.

If you'd be buying either option new, can't beat a Nikon D500 and a Nikon 200-500, either with or without their 1.4x TC (I found between the APS-C sensor and the 500mm reach giving equiv 700mm, I didn't really need the TC that much and preferred the extra speed)

You can get that lens for around $1250 and the D500 for $1500 so while not inexpensive, its some serious bang for the buck when it comes to great tracking/reach

Having owned it though, while handholdable, its more than I'd want to carry around on a hike typically, and you can't ignore the portability factor

My Canon 1Dx and 500/4 rig on a Wimberely Gimbal head was fantastic, however, I always set it up near the parking lot as it was otherwise too much to carry down a trail.

The Panny 100-400, weighting only about 2lbs, I carried on hikes of many miles to some nice overlook areas, handheld the lens shooting, and then carried it all back to the car, never feeling tired at all.

I'd put portability, and handholding ability, above any other metrics such as AF speed, IQ etc when it comes to making a decision.
