I'm upgrading from A6000 to A7iv. In choosing lenses, I'm specifically wondering whether this all-in-one lens:

on A7iv is likely to be better or worse than the 4.5-6.3/55-210 OSS I was using (and very happy with) on my Sony alpha 6000? I'm trying to figure out if I'm better off with a bunch of specialized lenses or whether this superzoom is going to do at least as well as what I'm used to on my a6000.

The 18-300 is an APS-C zoom too. I would not recommend full-frame mirrorless cameras for these lenses.

The full-frame Tamron 28-200 RXD is better than the 55-210 OSS, and I had a pretty decent example of the 55-210.
