How about fast action - BIF, fast birds on the river type thing, does SAF still cut it.

Seems to give me a better hit rate although most find differently I'm guessing. I find that if there's any sunshine and reflecting ripples on the water it can throw CAF completely............​...unless it's just that I haven't mastered CAF

I gave it back to Skip to use. I hated the 80D, which I rented. It was returned today.

What did you hate about it Maureen?

Maybe try a new spot? This one has been just amazing!

Fulvous Whistling Ducks (and a Black-bellied Whistling Duck)
These are rare for me to see, at least where I am in Texas.
