A dynamite duo
"I'm an amateur, retiree that needed a camera that was easy to carry around, had good picture quality and would allow me to shoot from macro to extreme telephoto - all without breaking the bank nor needing a Mack truck to carry. My previous camera was a Nikon D800 with the 105mm macro and 18-300mm zoom but while the macro end was superb, the telephoto end left a LOT to be desired and I couldn't afford, nor carry, a long lens. I wanted a viewfinder, rear displays don't work for me, so I was amazed when I started exploring this pair. The macro mode on this lens lets me get close enough to meet most of my needs and the built-in 2X teleconverter is the icing on the cake. I paired this with the 75-300mm zoom so now I have two lenses that give me an effective range of 24-1200mm, that's easy to carry and does 3/4 size macro. The internally cropped, resampled image quality with the teleconverter is more than adequate for my needs so while it may not be for everyone, it meets all of my needs so I won't need the 60mm macro lens. In short, this is my ideal mix of image quality, convenience, capability and affordability."
