On the left is the 6D/150-600, on right 7D2/100-400.

The 6D and 7D2 have the same megapixels - 20.2,
the focal length is pretty much the same: 6D @ 600 , 7D2 @ 400*1.6 crop = 640
and I see that zooming in to 100% causes nearly identical photos.


With respect to what I made bold and red, I am not seeing what you are seeing.

The image on the left looks way, way, WAY clearer and sharper than the one on the right. . The feather detail is SO MUCH crisper. . It is an enormous difference in image quality, not a subtle or slight difference.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

1/50th is TOO slow no matter if camera and lens are on a gimbal or not, one cannot guarantee the bird is 100% still even. I am quite sure the right side's lack of clarity is due to shutter speed.

And that could have been so easily corrected by using ISO 400 instead of 100.

I agree with using a blind for backyard birds. I recently bought a pop-up tent blind and set it up in an open area where I knew rabbits were coming out in the evening, the rabbits didn’t even know I was there. Another huge advantage of my tent blind is that the evening wind in the desert that usually plays havoc with my Sigma 150-600mm lens was not a factor at all.

If I am in a blind in my backyard and the rabbits that keep eating all of our landscaping pop out of the bushes, I am quite sure I won't be shooting them with my camera/lens. :)

I don’t care if the rabbits want to eat the weeds in the big open area of desert next to my lot, my lot is mostly Joshua trees and sand. I do have some fruit trees but I haven’t seen any rabbits climbing them, my dogs chase away any animals they see in my yard.

We used to have some coyotes and foxes in the area, but as fields are being turned into housing, they are all gone. They kept the population down to a small number in past years. Now the bunnies have mowed down all our lilies, hostas, and parts of our garden.

We have lots of Coyotes around this year, we had lots of rain early in the year so there are more critters for the Coyotes to eat, my niece raises expensive dwarf goats and just lost some to Coyotes. My dogs are big enough to scare off the Coyotes. I live in the Mojave desert.

This is the lot next door from 12 years ago but it looks the same now.
