Honestly, I am grinning like a child, cropping so tight around tiny birds and almost magically 'pulling' that extra detail from the shot.
50mpix resolution is addictive.. and since the storage is getting cheaper and cheaper I could not be happier with this setup.

I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.
