I used an xe3 and the 50-230 to shoot at an airshow once and got some nice photos from it. The camera body and AF wasnt the main issue. (although certainly not ideal, i could live with it) The main issue was that i didnt have nearly enough reach..

If you want the best results get 400mm imo, any 24=26mp body will do but the xs10 has a nice grip and some useful memory modes for action so maybe that body and its not so expensive as xt4.

The teleconverters work with the XF70-300mm, too, so the reach is outstanding for the weight (especially with Sportsfinder mode.)

That XC50-230mm is a super-bargain.
