Or it isn't proper to use a 10X zoom on a full frame camera?

Somebody else already answered this but I will second it in more detail. You buy a FF camera for maximum IQ. Cameras with 10x zoom ranges and greater compromise IQ and have slow f stops both of which defeat the purpose of using a FF camera in the first place. I have 5 lenses that I use on my FF camera and all have less than a 5x zoom range. When I want an extreme zoom range for walk around use I use an RX10iv.
