Thank you, Mike. It is all about keeper rate. With my old rig, I can get some sharp pictures, but percentage was much lower.
That 55-250mm STM is a great beginner bird/wildlife lens. Very cheap, super lightweight, quiet and fast AF, sharp for the price, it got me into bird photography.

It really is all about keeper rate. That's why I've got my eye open for the Canon 7DIII (if it ever come out), the 1DX mkII, or maybe even the Nikon 500D. I'd prefer to stay with Canon since I'm used to them and don't want to have to learn a new system, and purchase new lenses. I would prefer to stay with an APS-C body. That's why I'm holding my breath waiting for the 7DIII.


LD, or Mike
Often mistaken, but never in doubt.

Mike your turning blue... I'm not sure we have turned a corner ... but maybe keep an open mind.... You can teach an old dog new tricks.. It just might have an RF in the new name. Your gona love it.

Pag,
These ducks actually produce high pitch whistle-like calls, hence the name "whistling ducks". Their whistling habit actually alerted me of their in fight approach.

Thank you sincerely for explaining, and I get what you mean, its the same with Buteo buteo over here - I hear thier call first before i see them, like thier shouting "here I am"
