Can anybody help please?

I already decided to order the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8.

I also ordered the Sigma 100-400 for Sony E mount.

Now I just need to decide about the camera body.

My main concern in the R model is the focus system, which can be slower than the focus system in the non R model, according to some people and reviews.

My harder usage should be aircraft spotting, mostly civil aviation where I need fast and accurate focus system, but passenger airplanes are pretty easy to expect.

However, if I'm investing a big amount of money, I want my camera to be able to focus fast and accurate also on military and extreme airplanes, like airplanes in some air show or air force exhibition.

I already know that the R model provides better EVF, better screen and higher resolution (which can be very helpful for aircraft spotting) and the non R model provides more focus points, as well as a little bit higher performance in low light conditions.

Thank you.

The r,s 3 & 4 will do this easily from my brief experience with a7r3 and air show i went too this year ,covid put pay to most of them ,the show was actually bbmf 80th prop stuff world war 2 ,but i have been to american airbases lakenheath to photograph f15 and f16 jets , it does this easily in fact holds focus even shooting through fences with the 200-600mm ,very few misses .
