Level of ambition / Flash mount

If it was a drastic improvement over the 18-300mm then I would definitely consider it. I'm still deciding what to go with but have found that the superzoom range suits my general usage for nature photography.

Any of the camera bodies you are currently considering outresolve the superzooms you consider for "general usage for nature photography". If that is your level of ambition, stop overthinking your camera choices. To fully benefit from the differences in cam resolution assumed to be caused by the impact of a low pass filter on the sensor (or lack thereof, as you raised the point elsewhere) you may consider to start thinking prime lenses. Superzooms only go so far, but not that far.

The Sigma 100-400mm is very reasonable but only available to E mount through adapters.

You are in the A Mount forum here, just to prevent you loose track on where you are posting.

One point not yet mentioned at all: Flash.

One reason to choose the a68 in your situation is the flash mount, as you are already invested in the E Mount you may benefit for the shared flash mount on E and current A Mount bodies if you ever consider adding a dedicated fash. Your a3000 and a6000 have the same flash mount for example as the a68.

Good luck with your choices!
Cheers,
Ralf
