I see, thanks Mark. Anytime I shoot something in motion, I quickly take the lens off the head and do it handheld.

If you're good enough to do that, which your photos indicate that you are, no real need for a gimbal 'til you get a lens too big to it with. Only once have I owned a lens significantly larger/heavier than a BigmOs (Nikon 300 2.8) and that was for a short time when I was experimenting on with Nikon. As a Canon shooter, I've never had a lens as big as your Sigma, so I almost always hand hold... with the exception of going to a destination place like LD14 for BE's where you sit/stand in the same place for hours on end.

Looks pretty good for 100% crop. Also could be sharper with higher F/Stop.

I'll second the SX50HS suggestion if length is needed. It is *really* light and the superzoom is surprisingly good. It's largest aperture is only F/3.5 or something like that, so not particularly fast, but it does have a hotshoe for flash if needed.

The SX50 is capable of taking great shots in good light, but anyone looking to substitute it for a DSLR should be aware that it is slow to operate; slow to turn on, slow to zoom, slow to focus, and it has a poor viewfinder which can make finding a subject in a busy scene very difficult. I don't find mine very useful for small, active birds, for instance.

My 9yo son has become surprisingly good wtih his SX50HS, finding and nailing shots that his old man sometimes struggles with. ;) But yes, in terms of IQ and performance, it is likely a step down. But it is 400 bucks and light as a feather. Those are the tradeoffs.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Obviously.

It was only mentioned due to someone having difficulty with heavy camera setups due to health. A DSLR setup isn't going to take better pictures if you have to leave it home.

Yeah, I saw some videos of that camera, and the zoom/quality is pretty incredible. Could be a nice little secondary camera or something.

It's not like these weaknesses couldn't be addressed in a small-sensor, small-lens system. Manufacturers simply assume that there is no market for small-sensor, serious cameras for fast shooting. No reason I know of not to make a DSLR with a 3x+ crop sensor until EVFs become realtime, high-contrast and hi-res.
