One more thing: the kit lens smaller aperture especially at the long end limits the amount of light to the autofocus mechanism. This never seemed to be a problem with DSLR's but with mirrorless they are much more finicky on amount of light to autofocus, in my experience.

Very good to know. Thanks.
