Hi Ellie.

I think Sherman is dead on with his remarks. My main reason for replying is that I think you would struggle a lot with the 150-600. I borrowed one from a friend and put it on my Canon. I could not get a decent shot with it hand held. It was just too heavy and unbalanced for me. Even at 1/2000 ss blur was quite apparent. Birds on a feeder 40 ft away were worse than with my 70-300 DO. Also Canon a Canon 100-400 and it was manageable but still heavy.

That's why I decided to go to a lighter system than APCs. Either a Sony RX10, Nikon Coolpix 950, Olympus EM5 or Panasonic G9 are my top contenders. Have yet to try any of those yet.

Thanks and I totally agree with you!  The price was great but definitely not for me.
