@ShermN8r When I needed a small system for landscape photos (in addition to my 5DsR 100-400 II combo for birding and walking) I took a 200D (SL2) with a 10-18 zoom lens. It was worth more than its weight in gold IQ and weightwise
1. EVF cannot handle the speed of fast action. Just ask BIF shooters.
2. You have to use it in ONE-SHOT mode to achieve 8fps. It is 5fps for AI-SERVO with release priority and 3fps for AI-SERVO focus priority.
This is one of the most misleading specifications ever, pretty much false advertising.
Try it! Maybe it's possible. Woodpeckers can peck at up to 20 taps per second!
But...Competitive shooters using a finely tuned semi-auto rifle are only getting off about 3 shots per second. Can a competitive photographer do better with a shutter button?
