  1. Thanks, he rather chose the composition himself really......😃
  2. Falco tinnunculus Bushy Park, Hampton UK. One of a mating pair. Sony A7RIII, Sony 100-400 GM, 1/500th, F5.6, ISO 500, @400mm.
  3. It's a wonderful lens and doesn't lose any IQ or performance when couple with the 1.4x teleconverter on my A7RIII. However, I do find that tracking birds for instance is much easier in H mode. In H+ mode for a brief moment you are viewing the previous frame in the EVF, the apparent absence of blackout is an illusion. The only downside is the loss of 2 fps which I don't find a handicap. I like your photos in your link.
  4. Can you post a straight out of camera photo?
  5. How about the Sigma 150-600C using the MC-11 adapter. With the latest firmware for the adapter it’s supposed to be very good, it’s certainly within your budget and is a very versatile lens.
  6. A7R3 100-400GM + 1.4 tc. 1/5000 F8 ISO6400 Callicoon, New York State
  7. I find that the AF is astonishingly good in low light. Since my last post I’ve decided to bite the bullet and go over almost completely to Sony as I’m never going to be able to change the charectaristics of the Olympus sensor that I dislike. To that end I’m going to part exchange some Olympus lenses for the Sony 24-105 f4 and the 16-35 f4.
  8. Up until recently I have run two systems side by side, Canon full frame and Olympus m4/3. The weather here in the UK can be pretty dull at least half the year and I found that full frame for wildlife was more usable than APSC sensor bodies The FF Canon body I was using for the past 4 years was a 1DX , the lens being Sigma 150-600C. An excellent combination but very heavy to carry around all day. The body delivered lovely images but had two major pitfalls for me, size/weight and noisy shutter. To that end I have sold/part exchanged the Canon body and Sigma lens and bought a Sony A7Riii and the 100-400 GM with the 1.4x teleconverter. As all bird photographers say "you can never get close enough" but the 560mm reach coupled with the 42mpx sensor has satisfied me and enabled me to crop more than I felt able to with the 1DX sensor. The AF is excellent even if it's not up to the standard of the A9, I've had no issues with it. I've also bought an 85mm lens for portraits and a 35mm for walk around, both used but in mint condition. I'm still keeping hold of my Olympus m4/3 system for the time being because of the excellent quality of the lenses, I'm still not that happy with the sensor especially in certain lighting conditions.
  9. A7R3, Canon 70-150 F4.5 FD, Fotodiox. 1/60th F4.5 @150mm. ISO 100

  11. ^ Beautiful shots, such lovely dogs and sensible as I keep telling our schnauzer.
  12. Excellent shot, sums up the domesticated cat completely and very sharp.
