BIFs are definitely challenging. Just some practice with a seagull.

A Royal Spoonbill seemingly quite used to people as this one didn't seem to mind me slowly approaching it.:-)

Taken at the Mt Cootha Botanic Gardens in Brisbane. This was a bit of an opportunistic shot, thus I didn't have time to fit a Speedlite to cater for the bright BG, so I had to push the shadows a little to reveal detail in the dark beak.

Cheers

Dennis

Australasian Grebe having a rest after chasing off a flotilla of Hardhead ducks twice its size...

Eastern Water Dragon in the morning sunlight.

For both these shots, it proved very useful to have the flip-out screen of the EOS R so I could position the camera low down.:-)

Cheers

Just got back from trying another one, this time at a different store with a helpful store assistant. Got my head around the auto focus system, got a bit more familiar with the controls, and yeah, I think I'm sold. Just playing with the 5D mlIII when I got home, as familiar as that is, it just feels bloated now. That said, I wish the R was a tad bigger, those buttons are just a bit small. I'll wait for the next announcement for the pro version to make sure this is the model I want, then I'll pull the trigger. either way.............

Well, between seeing what this thread is getting, along with IG posts and reading the reviews, I'm in. While I await for a client to send me their payment (which will be enough to get the body), I was able to purchase the grip, the control ring mount and a second N battery. Hoping to have mine in the next two weeks.

Really impressed with these 100-400 shots in this thread. Looks like the R is playing well with this lens and the adapter. Great to see. Keep on posting everyone and Thanks.

No photo to share, but today I did my first portrait shooting with the R, speedlights, modifiers, etc. Not as big of an advantage using mirrorless w/ flashes because you can't see how it's going to turn out, so it felt like using a DLSR again. But, that's fine, not a drawback, especially since I didn't have any out of focus shots :) The colors from the R are really great to work with in post, I like it much better than the 5D4. Despite the sensors being similar in spec, they're not all that similar in practice.

After I got home, I messed about with the 2xIII extender on the 100-400 II. f/11 with AF, at 800mm...This camera just keeps on giving! Here's a 100% crop from a random test shot. No extra sharpening applied, and only simple exposure adjustments made. Hand held, btw:

I suspect that one difference may be the color filters. If you compare the 5D4 in the DPR studio comparison tool at ISO 102,400, the 5D4 is clearly cleaner in daylight in the darker areas, but when you switch to incandescent, the R gets very close to the 5D4, which is a strong suggestion of different color filters.

Finally thought of something for my avatar. Next time I'll close my mouth. A big thank you to my wife for pushing the shutter button.
