I really had fun with the RF 600 on my RP but honestly I think the Sigma 150-600 C is a lot more flexible lens. Unless weight is a big issue for me I’d probably go with that. I’ve had great results with that lens on my RP.

I wondered about this, thanks.

? - does RP + 150-600 keep up with birds in flight?

It does a fairly decent job but there’s definitely room for improvement. The 100-500L definitely is noticeably faster.

My Canon EF 100-400 Mk II seems faster but not by a lot.  Mm Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary does have more reach.  My EF 400f2.8 IS seems a hair sharper than the zooms but it too heavy for many uses.  I do not have the RP but I do have the R which is similar in many ways to the RP but they do have different sensors.
