I have a Sony a6600 and a Sony 200-600. I was wondering if the lens I have and a Sony a7 III. would be a better match.
I still use the Nikon D850/500 f 5.6 most of the time especially for BIF and will keep them.
Thanks, Karl.

Well it depends. Basically, since the megapixels are the same but one is APS-C and the other full frame, you would need to get 1/3 of the distance you are shooting now closer for the same subject size in the frame. But the a73 will be cleaner at high ISO but the a6600 has a newer more advanced AF system...

I do think the larger body makes things a bit easier for action photography. In a money is not an object scenario, the a9II would be far superior to the a73.

I recently sold my A7-3 with Tamron 28-75 lens on it. My feeling is,I think I would like the a6600 with Sony 200-600 much better. You can always rent an A7-3 for a week or so for comparison.

Sony a9/ a9 II with 200-600 (1.4x optional) would be awesome for birds.

After all I decide to buy a new Sony a7 III. I cannot afford the a9. I still have an excellent Nikon, D850 that is, for BIF shooting.
Thanks for the advices.
