Easily the best Bridge camera mde and my most used camera. Good IQ and outstanding AF.
Sony a99 II
Sigma 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM Art
Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD
Outstanding IQ and respectable AF make this camera a winner.
Very good IQ and useful zoom range. Very heavy for this type of lens.
Tamron SP 15-30mm F/2.8 Di VC USD
Tamron SP 45mm F1.8 Di VC USD
Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD
Outstanding IQ quality makes this lens a good match for my 42mp A99ii. The extreme detail when zoomed in to 100% is very impressive.

IQ ok for a super zoom but poor when compared to most zooms with a more limited range. My RX10iv blows this lens away for IQ so I sold it.
