I don’t remember seeing any geese on Kauai, it was over run with chickens though!

These certainly were plentiful out at the lighthouse, and in another place we visited.
Chooks, roosters, chickens. No shortage of them.

OUTSTANDING IQ!

How close were you for this shot? How much has it been cropped?

Thanks Wayne… For me IQ has almost nothing to do with the camera but how I use that camera and the lack of motion blur…

The power of the R is in the exposure as you can tweak to get exactly what your wanting in the highlights and the darks as your taking the images.. and the AF is astonishingly accurate.
The motion blur or the lack of is harder with the EOS R than say the 7DII in that the R can be so much more accurate giving more detail. I liked my 7DII's but the R is so much more.

The image has so little done to it I'm sure I screw most of my images up trying to make great even better..

The pics are looking good! Will be interested in your impressions after more experience with this Panasonic mft rig.

So far I am loving it. I was so happy with my EOS R I ended up selling my 5D Mark IV even though I didn’t intend to when I bought the R. I figured my 80D would cover any shortcomings of the R for BIF and providing the crop advantage.

R actually does better than I expected with flying Gulls, but they are easy to get close to. We have some Eagles close, I am looking forward to seeing how the G9 works on them in flight. It has an even better crop factor than the 80D (2x for MFT) and the 100-400mm (200-800mm eq.) lens is smaller than my 70-200mm 2.8L, in fact it is not much larger than the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM (pic below for comparison).

If it is able to track BIF on par with the 80D then I really have no need for the 80D and I would be totally mirrorless! Selling the 80D would make me think long and hard about keeping the EF 100-400mm L as well. While it is a great lens, I also have the 70-200mm F2.8L and a 2x TC so if only have the R body, it would be a bit of double overlap. Selling off the 80D, my two EF-S lenses, and the 100-400mm II would pretty much recoup the entire capital outlay for the G9 and PL100-400mm (or provide captital for other lenses ;) )

We are going to Hawaii next month, and at this point I am not sure if the R will even make the trip.
