So I have not gone out much with my gear recently so got to looking at some older shots and came across these bees close up massive crops and I guess other on here have similar shots with the 200-600, I have to say the lens is a great all rounder at its price point bee.jpg bee 1.jpg bee 2.jpg bee 3.jpg

One of the reasons the 200-600 is on my list.

Nice shots. I often crop in huge amounts. The lens is super sharp, and combined with the A7R4, you can crop massively.

Hi yes I have thought about the a74r but I am not sure about it as I shoot uncompressed raw on all my bodies a73 a9 and a99ii the file size could be an issue for me , although I really like the 42 meg on the a99ii

To be honest, shooting uncompressed vs Compressed is not noticeable in IQ at all, but yes, file sizes are 127mb if you shoot uncompressed.
