Now you are delving into the used market. That lens is no longer made because it's been replaced by the 150-600. It's hard to get and still demands a premium price. It is not as sharp and you still sacrifice the 24-50mm range. It's also big, heavy, and costs as much used as the 150-600 putting the final cost beyond the $2000 threshold when you add a lens covering the 24-50mm range.

The 50-500 has been replaced with the 60-600 DG https://www.sigma-imaging-uk.com/lens-item/60-600mm-f4-5-6-3-dg-os-hsm/

I didn't know about that lens. I looked it up and it costs $2000 by itself and it still doesn't cover, in this case, from 24-60mm. So, we are back to square one. No ICL solution to compare with the RX10iv.

How about this?

Panasonic Lumix GX85 Mirrorless Camera with 12-32mm and 45-150mm Lenses and Accessories Kit $797

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II Lens $549


Panasonic Lumix G Vario 100-300mm f/4-5.6 II POWER O.I.S. Lens $647

Both combinations are well under $2000 and get you 24 to 600 equivalence.

The GX85 is lower resolution (16MP), but has a larger sensor than the RX10. The Lumix 12mm @ F3.5 is a bit slower than the RX10 at the wide end (6.5 vs 7 equivalent aperture), but this kit is a good two stops faster at the 600mm equivalent end.

Doesn’t “faster” just have to do with the necessary shutter speed for a proper exposure? (Nothing to do with aperture equivalent.) So F4 would be faster than 5.6, right?
