What happens after 600mm?


Nothing, but longer lenses are either way too expensive or way too cheap. And it is very difficult to handhold  longer lens. The 150-600's seem to have hit a sweet spot.

"Is there any advantage to having the Rebel T6 in addition to the Powershot SX50?"

 

Absolutely.  It is, the T6, by far and away the better camera.  Let's examine that lens thingy!  Here is the deal, the SX50 has a tiny sensor. That means you can make a tiny lens and it will look huge. The T6 has a larger sensor so it takes a bigger lens to accomplish the same image.  That's great for the SX50 you say?  But, wait, there is more.  The IQ falls off drastically if you try to enlarge or do major cropping to your images. Or make prints in the 8x10 or larger format. If all you intend to do is post on FB or some other social forum the SX50 is pretty good. Keep it no reason to switch.  Same reasoning for using, and you might as well, a smartphone. The SX50i s not the best camera for low light or fast action though as its lens is slow and continuous shooting is also slow.  The T6 will beat it hands down.

 

Take a look at the Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 for Canon for your T6.

The exact reason there are so many camera/lens combos on the market is because there are so many different uses.  Lot's of folks have a different need or requirement for their camera/lens.  Not a one size fits all.  You need to use whatever works and does the job for your requirements.

"...maybe I could afford the lens cap for that 36-pound monster..."

 

You would have more of a problem than just buying the lens cap even if you could afford the whole lens. Canon only made a handful of them and that was from the early 1980's.  Just finding one would be a problem. The lens that B&H has it likely the only one they have ever had in the existence of the store.

Re: EOS Rebel T6 vs PowerShot SX50 HS

Or I can buy 400 SX50HS's!

I'm putting my house for sale and BH is holding the lens for me! If you pass a homeless guy with a huge lens on the street that would be me!
