When using the A7iii - Mark Galer recommends using the compressed RAW format for best shooting speed.

I noticed that he didn't say anything about the advantages or disadvantages of the 1.5x crop factor on the A6xxx cameras.

I am wondering how well my 70-350mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS lens will pan out on my A6600 when shooting BIF???

My rule of thumb is 600mm (FF equivalent AoV) is the price of admission and 750-850mm gets you into the stalls.

......

When you go into crop mode do still have FF view, shaded or marked by a line?

Yes.
Sony isn't cheap. For someone starting in birds I'd recommend 2nd hand Nikon: the D500 and 200-500mm. That takes a lot more to learn but is very capable.
