"There's a legitimate concern that there's no great options for stabilized, bright telephoto lens."

That's an illegitimate concern for me, at least with the long end of my 55-210mm lens. I can use 3200 ISO, the lens has stabilization, and it's insanely lightweight compared to my Nikon 70-300mm lens.

At 200mm I can easily throw the background out of focus at f/6.3. Put a large aperture on a telephoto lens designed for an APS-C camera, though, and you're back to carrying something huge and heavy that negates, for me and I suspect some others, the reason for having a smaller, albeit high-quality camera.

Otherwise I like what you say.

My 19 year-old cat yesterday; he's still breathing, today (hnd-held and knee-braced photo).
