Then it's a game changer.

Look at this eagle shot my Canon-friend, Mike Reardon, took with a Sony RX-10:

The one-inch sensor isn't the cat's meow in low light, or for large prints, but the AF system is pretty amazing. That's a $1700 system!!
Oh, I've been resisting the temptation to grab an RX-10 IV. Ed's work with it has been astounding. I just wish I could scrape up the determination to box up and sell some of my existing gear. But I have this intense aversion to to selling stuff online.
