The big thing for me, moving from the R6 to Sony, is the cost of the RF 100-500 in the UK. I picked up the 200-600 for £1239, brand new from Wex, whereas the 100-500 is nearly £3k! It’s insane and just doesn’t justify the cost difference.

I’m extremely happy with the 200-600.

I also wonder about using a TC on it versus cropping or even the latest Lightroom “enhance” feature. I see me using the latter 2 options over a TC.

The TC1.4 is fantastic with the 200-600 as long as your camera can autofocus at f9. Mine hardly ever comes off. See below 840mm and APS-C mode so effectively 1260mm.

Here cropping would not work well because of the low light and noise would ruin the details.

aps-c mode is just cropping. It will not give you more reach
