A couple of important questions from Sony user - is R6 a perfect body?

Hallo Canon shooters

Let me introduce the reason I want to ask you some questions, with hope, they are going to be answered.

I think Canon (R6 in particular) is able to solve all my issues as far as fast action/sports shooting for half of the Sony's budget. I am far from starting any war between the systems, but after having read so much about possible solutions I think I know the theory, but need some practical verification.

I have been shooting sports/action for many years sticking to APS-C from Sony. Now I use A6600 with adapted lenses, which after many trials and errors (I sold Sigma 18-35F1.8 to buy Sigma trio of F1.4 just to discover that Sigma 18-35F1.8 is far superior wide open). I also use Tokina 11-20F2.8 with great results with MC-11. The problem is I am a bit tired of such a solution with constant questions nagging my brain - "what if I used only native lenses?"

As far as APS-C and Sony there are not so many fast lenses with acceptable sharpness IMO and F2.8 makes F4 on aps-c in terms of background separation.

I have been thinking about switching to FF (A7III/A9/A7RIII) for many months but I have constantly been founding reasons to not do it because the compromise between AF-C (Eye-AF tracking, etc) and price and quality (DR) was hard to be achieved from a perspective of a hobbyist, not professional.

  1. Why have I not switched to A7III? - because when I wanted to do it Sony introduced A6400/A6600 with much better RTT AF-C Eye AF etc.
  2. Why have I not switched to A7RIV? - because 61 MP is an overkill for me in terms of RAWs in PP
  3. Why have I not switched to A9? - because of poor DR when compared to A6600 (maybe I suffer from pixel peeping as far as recovering shadows)
  4. Why have I not switched to A9II? - I am still thinking about it

In the budget of a naked A9II I can have R6 and a couple of decent EF adapted lenses, or I can stretch the budget a bit and go full throttle with RF15-35F2.8 and adapted 70-200F2.8, which will be replaced with RF equivalent in future.

If you have read my post so far (thank you) here comes the question:

Can R6 with some adapted and native RF lenses be compared to A9II for this kind of photography? (I do not need 20 electronic FPS or super fast connection)
