Two ducks this time.
I can tell you these thinks make eagles look slow. they pop up from the weeks where you
didn't even know they were there and are instantly at 40mph. I'd have what seemed milliseconds
to acquire.
The a9 100400 2.0TC is just really making me happy, thinking I used to suffer a 10 pound load to
get similar images!

Hmmm looks really good to me. This maybe a great option for a short telephoto lens for landscape and travel. I wonder how it compares to the FE 70-300.

Interesting building Alfredo, thanks for sharing. My background is in concrete structures beginning with prestressed concrete bridge foundation piling for freeway overpasses for example. The major projects I worked on was construction of the concrete tunnel liners for the Hollywood Metrorail subway system, and the Metropolitan Water District's Diamond Valley Reservoir Project near where I live today.

I also worked on Petco Stadium (San Diego Padres Ballpark) where the company I worked for built and erected the pre-cast concrete risers, stairs, walls and slabs, and the five story underground parking structure at Hollywood and Highland where the company I worked for used extremely high strength concrete that had a design strength of 12,000 psi for the structure's columns and beams.

Oops, sorry, that reads like a resume. :oops:

That's awesome Gene. You worked on some great projects.

Interesting stuff gene since I also work in construction. 12,000 psi, do you know what that is in Newton’s? We typically use 30-40 newton concrete but sometimes up to 50 depending on the application

Edit - just googled it there and 12,000 psi is around 82 N/mm2 so that is very high strength indeed!

Sony Smooth reflections app before and after shots. 16 shots. Insane what you can pull out of these. I must use it more haha.

Keyhole Rock at Anawhata on Auckland's west coast.

Also caught some luminescence in the water, just as a plane coming in towards Auckland airport put on his landing lights. Bad focus as using an old manual Minolta 50mm lens here and couldn't see anything at all to get focus, so used the infinity mark.

You should try SR next time you are doing Astro. It allows you to get cleaner foregrounds at high iso to blend into a sky shot instead of shooting a long exposure at low iso for the foreground which can result in hot pixels etc. That’s my fav use of the app

I did try it but had star trails, do you just drop a single image for the stars onto the foreground then?

*Edit, sorry just re read your post where you mention blend....... doh !

definitely better all around, however doesnt do 300, and the 70-300 is competent @300 in 2/3rds of the frame. Short telephoto, FDn 200mm f4 for landscapes, it's what you expect from a sharp prime, if you can live with MF and single FL.

How do you go about getting the smooth reflections app? Is it worth getting overall? I really enjoy taking longer exposures when i am out camping by the water.

Also, i really struggle with grasping astro photography. I have tried many times to get something decent and come up short. Can you guys make any recommendations?

Tmalone, yes and know.
I think I mentioned sometimes they are in the weeds or in water with weeds between me and them more likely but unseen regardless and they
suddenly pop up and really zoom to speed.
So with the 100-400gm I can instantly twist the zoom to get to them reach wise.
With the RX10iv ~and granted way faster to zoom out than I'd feared pre-purchase~ it's just nowhere near as fast as with a manual zoom out of
the 100-400GM.
Now once on them I have no doubt the RX10iv could have AF-C tracked the ducks. AF-C tracking birds is now so easy with these two cameras it
just dumbfounds me
A word on focus points in wide or zone mode. For me there is no way to keep a small flexible spot on the head of a flying bird, nor center focus either.
So I keep a group of dancing green boxes, i.e. wide or zone on the bird and hope that at either 20fps (a9) or 24fps (RX10iv) I get one with eyes that
are sharp.
The RX10iv has the DOF advantage AND pixel density advantage over the a9, an advantage even over the a6500 for 'pixels on target' but as good as
the RX10iv's AF-C tracking is, and it is remarkable, the a9 is another step up.
The obvious big difference is that the a9 can do this at F11 and even with ISO's pushing 6400 I can get a good image. I can't say that about the bridge camera.

Now you've heard me whine about the weight and it being my justification of leaving the big EOS bodies and Whites. On this trip after shooting the RX10iv for a session,
and those sessions were 3-4 hours, then go back to the a9 and zoom, I could tell a big difference on the joints/muscles.
