Recommend a compact superzoom for birding?
4 months ago

So I have X-T1 and love it to bits and it's my only camera at the moment. Unfortunately, I also want to take bird pictures and Fuji doesn't have a supertele yet. The 55-200 is just not enough and even if there were one, the size/weight/price will be too much, given that I have already spent $$$ building up the Fuji system from scratch. So, I think I want to buy a compact superzoom camera (e.g., Canon SX160) as a second camera for birding and travel when the reach is really needed. It must be as compact as possible with better than average IQ. I don't want another "system", but rather, just a single camera.

Any specific brands/models you'd recommend? Pros and cons based on your own experience (I can read online reviews on my own)? Thanks much!

Fujifilm X-T1
