Hi Tangula
Your desire for 'something bigger & better' is a common one for all of us :)

In ruff 'n ready terms, camera lenses are sized to match the film / sensor in use ... and my small sensor camera lens in millimetres terms goes from about 5mm to 120mm in real numbers. This is small and means that everything about it is small [and lightweight and beaut to use]

Because the angle covered by my lens at 5mm equals the angle covered by a film camera using a 24mm lens, and because the angle covered by my lens at 120mm equals the angle covered by a film camera using a 600mm lens, Mr Panasonic terms it as being "a camera whose lens is equivalent to 24 - 600mm"

But everything is small because the sensor is small. You are using a large sensor camera - and your lenses must be larger to accommodate that sensor. So the end game is ... use your 150-600 "stretchable" to maybe 800/900mm and enjoy what you've got

Here are some google references to big lenses for you & TCav to have a sqwiz at

Hope this helps
Phil
