This is a great close-up shot of one of my guys, Richard! He surely let you get pretty close. Very nicely done.

Exceptionally nice shot, SYS!

Beautifully captured, fotoi! I like the water dripping off her bill.

Yes indeed...they certainly are enjoying each others company. Great capture, Tom!

Charles, this is a beautiful shot. Very attractive and nicely composed!

Really cool shot, Charles!

Very nice shot, Irene!

Thank you Mike!

Ray...that is very nice of you to say. But I'm definitely not a heavy hitter on these forums.

The smoke is so bad around here from all the fires, that I'm not able to really get out and do any serious photography. I'll go to a park near me or shoot in my own yard. I'm also using the Canon M6 II because it is a crop sensor camera, and I love the 7DII so much. I actually like this little camera, and I hang my 100-400 on it. As far as the R5...I'm shooting neighborhood birds and really like the camera a lot. But I'm so disappointed about our smoke conditions and having to stay in the house most of the day. It's like a foggy day all the time.

The R5 really runs nice with the 100-400. It is a perfect combination as far as I'm concerned. I like to slap the 1.4 TC on this combination, because so far with the little testing I've been doing, it's working out just fine.

You asked about how I like the R5 compared to the 7DII. It's a tough question to answer, because one is a full frame camera, and the other is a crop sensor camera. I really like that extra reach of the 7DII, and the image quality of it is so very good. I truly wanted to go mirrorless, so by going with the R5, I can use all my current Canon lenses with zero negative drawbacks. To me, everything is great with the R5, except for the fact that I'm a little hindered by not getting the magnification that I do with the 7DII. If you on fence about this decision, I'd say go with the R5, but keep your 7DII. I'm glad with the choice I made.

Thank you for sharing your experiences, and especially for adding in the additional impressions when comparing the R5 to using your APS-C bodies. It's valuable for a shooter like me who currently uses a crop sensor camera for birding, and is contemplating what that loss of "reach" would mean. Due to the high resolution of the R5 sensor, of course we are able to crop and still retain detail, but I have a hard time hurdling that idea, and would rather stick to getting it right in camera. Of course, that means either: bigger lenses using TCs, or improving our field craft and making up that loss of reach by getting even closer to the birds ;-)a Well, I've tried both, and both options have their limitations!

Are you thinking about getting the 100-500?

Mike. I hope your environmental conditions are improving - it seems just one thing on top of another for the whole world these days.
Many thanks for responding with your detailed experience of the R5. Your response was more or less as I anticipated. Do you think the advantage is the improved technology from when the 7DII first entered the market? I am on the fence with this one but waiting to see some more practical results. I will hang on for a bit - I think-?
Maybe the 100-500L would be an inexpensive addition to my system.
I read a rumour that a Canon is planning a new crop mirrorless for later this year. Forget the 8K video, but give me GPS.
Regards


Ray-P

Excellent shot Eric! A Song Sparrow as Ken said above. To add, Song Sparrows lack the unique triangular breast pattern. Also Songs have a stronger malar pattern, have a eyeline, have darker/larger beaks, and a longer tail. Your Song Sparrows are so much darker there in the Pacific Northwest than what we get here.
...

Thanks Brad; excellent additional notes. I can always count on your ID assistance! :)

this little fella turned up on the anniversary of the passing of the wifes best friend. stayed for three days and now nowhere to be seen. a misaligned flight feather corresponded to one of his rugby injuries, so she's convinced he's paid a visit
