Good choice, as good as the R5 is, the A1 is a superior camera in every way.

- R5 animal/bird subject detection and acquisition is faster than A1 in a number of situations

- no animal/bird eye af in video ?!

- IBIS better than A1

- A1 suffers more rolling shutter distortion in video mode

- R5 + 100-500 is sharper and has more contrast than A1+200-600

- R5 can record video with video settings simply by pressing record button

The 200-600 will let you take better photos than the 100-500 (I mean a higher percentage of great photos), but it's much larger and heavier. It's possible that Sony will release a "compact" 100-500 in the future. We will see.

Really? I hadn't read the R5 + 100-500 is sharper than the A1 + 200-600...
