Does he write good stuff with Sigma Art lenses?  I might be wrong or with Samyang?  




I did a search on with a feature search.  No.  If you want a long lens and a sensor larger than 1", no.  The cameras with a larger sensor than 1" (this Sony here), the lenses are all quite a bit less zoom...





I currently use a dinosaur set up, a full frame dSLR. Except that I don't. I've given up carrying a bazooka 24-70, 70-200 f/2.8 everywhere I go, so bazooka sits in the box. What I'm waiting for is a small camera that can do what my bazooka can, plus what the dinosaur can't, eg 4k60 video, longer zoom, wider ultrawide, etc.





dSLRs have gotten larger and larger. I use them more for planned shots ie sunsets etc .. for casual stuff I am looking for a Ricoh GR for travel I find that I just need something to record the moment and a compromise is a mirrorless.  I don't do action so I don't miss a dSLR.  I seldom use the 70-200 on travel and hardly carry that overseas.  I've mainly used the 16-35 and then maybe a 50mm.  I find for pple travel style it's more a 28mm or a 35mm with a flash.  




Once overseas with family I thought others could help nope ... I had with me a Nikon D600 and a F100 (slide film) and a Fm2n manual (b/w film).  At times I just used my phone when we headed out to the restaurant etc.  Other times I just shot b/w film cos the Fm2n was so much smaller than the autofocus dSLR or film SLR.  The compact large sensors are very appealing ....

Holy wow!!! Just saw the photos on that review. 


I want one!!


I take heaps of bird photos and that would be amazing!





Umm ... Don't think (know) you'll get moving birds at 600mm with this camera. 





Don't want them moving, just from distance and close up of small ones...
