Kev there's always a solution and you've got it.
Awesome captures on the Friarbird.
Now didn't you (maybe still) shoot the heavies (Canon).
Your mFT work is tops, if you left Canon I can see why you don't miss the weight :)

Thanks mate. Yes, I've offloaded my Canon Combo as I just couldn't hold it steady anymore due to bursitis being worsened by lifting. Managed to buy all the gear in my sig with the proceeds from just the 7dmkll and 100-400mkll with cash to spare. Photography was becoming a chore due to the pain but I'm back to enjoying it again now, and learning a few things more such as stacking

I've yet to try BIF with it though. Your image of the eagle above is superb and one of the best I've seen from a m43 rig

When you have a minute scroll through this album:
https://www.flickr.com …/albums/7215768​6225817362 (external link)
Poof(adora) is the better-half.
She was the one who showed me that mFT in the right hands (like yours) is fine for everything (well except maybe Milky Way and high ISO super low light stuff).

She and I sat side by side on a pontoon boat shooting Osprey and kites in Florida (good light). She had Oly M1ii+300Pro and I had 1DXii+500ISii.
It was a two week trip shooting in many places. We came home with 24K files between the two of us. Eventually we sat down and were processing side by side.
Yep the 1DXii rig got a few more keepers BUT the Oly got its share.

When I mentally compared the pain of holding the Canon rig to the Oly rig, well a light went off :)
I've been in the Sony world for a long time (since the NEX-5) so moving from the Canon heavies to the Sony 'heavies' was easy for me.
I found as an example the Sony a9 could do everything the 1DXii could do only faster and with more DR.

So Sony is a transition for me to the point where I wont be able to wield it.

I keep using the Oly M1ii becaue I love it. It has the best ergonomics of any camera I've ever used (Sony a99ii comes in second place for ergos) and I've learned that
IF I can get the subject to fill my frame I'd hard pressed to discern a difference between an 1DXii shot (in good light).

Speaking of good light. If I have crap light it's usually raining....in which case I pack it up or go find a waterfall :)

Have to say I agree and I'm very surprised that in good light the omd mkII 300f4 pro can hold its own with my 1dxmkII and 600F4 mkII it doesn't really make sense that a little m43 sensor can be so close to a full frame (in good light ) but it is to me.

My first go at burst shooting using CAF low 9 area focus, the weather was not the most ideal - dull cloudy and dark, most shots where out of focus but this one is not to bad.

I'll tell her Kev. She loves Olympus, actually when I shoot Oly I'm often asking her the ins and outs. I help her with Sony :)

Thanks mate, I think its a combination of things but it my tech has anything to do with it, it might come from hand holding the 300 prime i had with no VR/IS, I have been learning a lot about the E-M1's focus system, did you know the short cut for improving it - by reducing the low key gradation along with using the vivid image profile, helps the focus quite a bit (I tested it)
