My Photographic Equipment
This is my current inventory of photography equipment. Not shown here is my carbon fibre tripod and carbon fibre gimbal head, backpack, hip pack and flashes and filters.
The Sony a7r iv is my prime mover with the Sony a6000 and its three lenses relegated to my hip pack when I go on hikes.
Sony a7r IV
61.2MP BSI CMOS full-frame sensor
Powerful yet easy-to-use AF tracking system
10 fps burst shooting (JPEG or Compressed Raw from 12-bit readout)
5.76M dot OLED viewfinder
4K video from full sensor width (sub-sampled) or oversampled from roughly-Super35 crops
4 or 16-shot high resolution modes (up to 240MP images for static subjects)
S-Log 2, S-Log 3 and 'HLG' video modes (8-bit only)
Go to Digital Lens Comparisons at https://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx and compare the Sony 200-600mm with the latest Nikon 600mm F4 and Canon 600mm F4, all at 1200mm. Pushing the lenses with their 2X teleconverter provides the best comparison. The Sony 200-600mm at 1200mm is every bit as good as the mega priced Nikon and Sony primes although slower. The sharpest 600mm F4 by far is the Sony 600mm F4.
I use the Sony 200-600mm at 200-600mm, 840mm and 1200mm all with auto focus. This is my principle wildlife lens and a great buy considering its superb performance.

When I go for hikes on the coastal barrens, beaches or woodlands I use the Sony a6000 camera body with the Sony 70-350mm (105mm-525mm, full frame equivalent) and the Tamron 17-70mm ( 26mm-105mm, full frame equivalent). I also have the 16-50mm PZ (24-75mm, full frame equivalent) which I rarely use except when I try to look less geeky or conspicuous especially for street photography.
