Thatís interesting. I donít mind the mechanical shutter. I am increasingly using my A7RIII over my A9 for wildlife although there are definitely times, such as for BIF, where the A9 is the weapon of choice. However for many other types of wildlife like large mammals, the A7RIII is great with the additional resolution.

With the A7R IV announced, it has me on the fence about just keeping my 400 GM and using crop mode for reach. Granted, I still use my A9 all the time for sports and wildlife, but to have the R IV in your back pocket too with cropped higher MP count than the current gen, it is fuzzing my decision as to collecting my 600 order or not.

Anyone else contemplating this?

I am just in love with the possibilities that f/2.8 can give you in terms of light gathering and DOF when you need them, with a 26mp 600mm equivalent FOV I would keep that possibility all life... But YOU know if reach is enough for you...

Well, 600mm is plenty. If you need to go full ham and get a 2x tc, add in CIZ, you're all the way out to 2400mm. Absurd really, but it's something to always know if within reach!

The 400 has more than exceeded any and all expectations, and already having it just blurs my idea of keeping it. Had the R IV never been announced, this would be a non-issue...

I have been testing the 600 today with some other pros. It is an outstanding lens!
Took some in studio head shots handheld as low as 1/15. Amazing!

As I was using the A99II with the 500 F4 frequently with the 1.4 TC to shoot World Cup Downhill, where you have to frequently move quickly on skis to get a variety of unique shots as the sun changes as well as course conditions. The 600 is appreciably lighter, so I anticipate more ease of mobility with the E-mount system. Not that the A-mount system didn't already crush my now sold Canon system. The 400 will work well for closer in events like slalom.
