Yeah, the hit on lenses sucks and the kit lenses aren't much more than give aways. Seriously consider the 16-80 and 100-400 I suggested before putting more money in that you won't recoup.

Question R mount 600mm f4 DO ....... ??

This type of 'artificial' market segmentation would be absolutely typical Canon.

That's fair enough - the 150-600 still takes quite some commitment to carry around, and even the Canon 400 f5.6L is a specialist bit of kit.

Your D5600 is a great little camera. You'll find that the...

Thumbs down Nikon Z7 tracking lags behind the D850, Sony a7 III
