Re: Your experiences with a long, fixed focal length, say 600mm?

I am not the best to ask about "fixed" lenses because I carried/changed lenses since I began in photography in 1959 ... UNTIL ... 2012 when I got my first "bridge" camera w/ speed & convenience of "continuous" zoom that was wider/longer/faster than conventional "kit" lenses.

Combined w/ a FULLY-articulating (reversible) LCD, and 1/4000s flash-sync, I am now taking 10X more images.

The FZ-1000 goes to 400mm-EFL (@ f/4) and the RX10-IV goes to 600mm-EFL, (and both w/ DIGITAL zoom 4-8X longer when needed).

(But RX10 does not have FA-LCD or 1/4000s flash-sync.)
