Re: Questions for A 65 owners

The RX10 goes to 200 mm, so I guess you are thinking of wildlife not too far away.

My A65+Tamron 18-270 is decent.      I think there is a lot of quality variation on the 18-270 though.  I also have the Tamron 18-270 for a Nikon D7100 and it has quite a bit less resolution at full zoom than my Sony version does.

But I will tell you what is better than my A65+18-270.    My NEX7+SEL18-200 lens is quite a bit better.     Pair that SEL-18200 up with the newer A6000 with its faster AF and that might be just the thing for you.

To me the RX10 seems like a bit of an odd duck.   My suspicion is that a NEX6/7 with either of the 18-200 zooms is hardly any bigger and has significantly better IQ.   But the market for a superzoom may be a completely different crowd so maybe it makes sense that way.
