Levina, I'd say it does alright but not spectacularly. I think it's no surprise to say that the 7DII does better. However, I'm not shooting a premium white Canon telephoto but my Tamron 150-600. I sold my Canon 400 f/5.6L before I got the 80D; I wish I could test it with that. Maybe I'll test it with my 70-200 2.8 II some day (but that's not really a birding lens).

I was kinda hoping you would respond, Gabe. Even though we talked about it before. :-)

I started out with a 40D and birds in flight went pretty well so I was thinking the 80D is the latest camera in that line and should do better even. It could very well be that your Tamron is slowing you down some. I shoot BIF with the 400/5.6 and that's still one of the best BIF lenses around and that should make a real difference.

On the other hand, when I was shooting with the 40D I couldn't compare it with anything else, but I've been shooting with 1D bodies for the last 4 years, so switching back to a XXD body may feel like too much of a downgrade especially in the AF department.

Thing is I bought a 1D4 and I like the files and the AF is superb, best ever. But this copy is old, high shutter count, pretty worn, missing covers on the side, it stinks after after shave (really, male photographers have got to stop using after shave!) and it has an incredibly dirty sensor. The whole camera is dirty really. And I'm getting tired of getting these old, worn copies from the shop. Of course, the price tag is accordingly, but for that same money I can buy a new camera, like the 80D or the 7DII.

Anyway, thanks very much, Gabe.

Yay! I'm just back from the shop. Got an 80D body for €1099. If I buy an EF lens this year, I'll get a cash-back on the package, e.g. with an EF 100-400 II the total for lens & body will come to approx €2775.00

Canon at last can get close to Sony
The 5D v4 will be very interesting

I agree, I thought I would be happy with my 5d3 for decades, but it's looking like Canon might tempt me yet again. Especially now that my daughter is moving out and I find myself shooting outdoors at ISO 100 more and more.

Levina, still playing around with kids in flight and a few lil birds.

Focusing via VF is a step up from the 50d, but does come up a lil short compared to the 1d3 (though they have very similar single point AF adjusting CF), which I know you recently upgraded from. What is really missing is a joystick and I really dont like the black AF points. Overall, it does fit in the current lineup for a xxd body with some nice options and would be a definite step down from a 1d4.

Focusing on LV is very interesting. Tracking is definitely a step up from the eos Mc. There's a different mentality and has its limitations (noticably the lag), but when it his focus it is on.

For now I am keeping everything and still favor the 1d3 when AF is the most important and going with the 80d when I need more pixels, reach, or ISO.

Hi budstuff, nice pics. Wanted to pick your brain/experience, if you have the time/willing...

How's the 500mm AF with the 80d (view finder and especially the live view tracking)?

Based on your examples, I get the impression that the 300mm with 2x seems a little sharper/contrastier than the 500 f/4.5. Obviously a limited sample. Is there a noticeable difference with AF (600mm vs 500mm)?

Thanks in advance.

So far I'm happy with the 80D.

Still getting used to the focus points. I've printed a few 16x20 which is my most common print size and they look good. Any flaws are more operator error than camera error. :)

Who knew that the biggest learning curve was going to involved use the higher number of focus points.
