I purchased an R3 which doesn't have any frames per second battery level issues. I am hopeful that one day a good 600mm zoom lens is available for the RF mount.

Thanks for that explanation. I had many of the same concerns when I picked up an R6. Battery life is poorer on mirrorless than DSLR, but its just something you get used to. A useful 'life hack' on this is to run the camera in airplane mode. The battery lasts a lot longer and will get the green H+ mode all the way down to about 13% (on the R6).

Which airshow are you talking about?

I will be going to the Thunder Over Michigan show in a couple of weeks.
