Great coverage on the Sony A1 and 600/F4. Tigger is a now a favorite in my household, esp. with my daughter who just loved the “Tigger at a fast trot with fresh juicy gopher for dinner” shot. Apart from great technical image quality (A1 + 600/F4), we also admired Tigger's intense focus (no pun intended) in some of the shots - clearly a no-nonsense cat.

Re. Zoom vs. Primes and the comment on Galen Rowell and his lens choices. My take is that if the conditions are so hazardous that a lens change is impossible and one still desires top quality, take a small prime and call it a day. There are other more important things to worry about on a slippery, wet mountain hike than trying to fiddle with a zoom. As you point out, your work with the M10M + the 24 Elmar and ZM 35 F1.4 shows the power of small primes.

Your "Climbing Mt Dana" series with the Leica Q is another great example of a single focal length put to excellent use with images that draw the viewer in. Solid images, great colors in that series. No zoom needed.

Continuing the zoom vs prime thread - take a FF body + a small prime (or a Leica Q or similar) in your favorite focal length and throw in a Sony RX100VI for longer tele shots on hikes where every gram counts. The RX100VI is a gem with an astounding IQ/(weight, size) ratio, 24-200 in your pocket with IQ that can rival larger sensors when used within its limits.

Good work, eager to see more.

DIGLLOYD: I’m fascinated by Tigger—he grew up feral and stayed healthy until he found us. He exhibits all the wild behaviors you might see of his larger cousins, which I find fascinating. He lives in his wild world part of the day and in our home for security parts of the day.
