Well, let's see... You could, for example, put a Sony 70-400mm (max f/4) and LA-EA4 adapter on the A7s to capture faraway stuff at 12mp. Total cost new in the neighborhood of $5000. How about autofocus effectiveness, size, etc.?

Or you could, for example, put a Sony 70-200mm (max f/2.8) on the A77II and engage the Smart Teleconverter at 1.4x for almost exactly the same composition occupying the central 12mp. Total cost new in the neighborhood of $4200. How about autofocus effectiveness, size, etc. there?

Replace the above with any new or used lenses of your choice.
