I really like what this camera and lens can do. It is quick and easy to focus on any subject I choose without the lens hunting for focus. I leave the iso ceiling at 8000. I see too much noise above that, but if I just wanted the shot I would have no problem pushing it past that. I was able to configure the controls to my liking. The one thing I miss from my Pentax Kr is the shot information on photo review. I liked to see that on past shots, in camera. I'll just have to be smarter. Cameras and lenses are one of those things where you should just put all the money you can afford to spend in a bag and spend all of it. If I wanted to spend more money I might have bought something else, but I doubt I would have been happy with less. It's your money and your budget. An 18 - 300 lens works well for my purposes. I prefer the single lens to two lenses. The conveinence is well worth the extra cost.
Pros: Quick and crisp focus. I've stopped bee wings in flight with1/8000. The focus ring on the lens is movable even in auto focus, so if the camera has chosen the wrong focal point, you can override it. The animal behind these bars problem? Push the focus behind the bars.
Cons: Snapbridge Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections chew up the battery. The Wi-Fi is particularly hard to use, so much so I can't see using it in the field. Not worth the effort and diminishing returns for what it costs in battery life.
