Is it just me or does bird Eye AF not work so well?

For example, it couldn't even find this penguins eye  :p

In all serious though, the combination of IBIS and lens IS is really great, 1/20 handheld with an 85mm is something I used to struggle to do with IBIS alone.

Pic of a recent knife purchase, I was surprised when Eye AF locked onto to the eye socket of the skull!

(Taken with R6, still not in gear list)

Well, those two (with the possible exception of a wide-angle zoom - though I do have an EF17-40L) should do pretty much all my shooting, so I can leave the lenses on the bodies.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Still shooting gulls from home. It's never been easier shooting BIF heads on than now, with the R6 (and R5).
This fellow came too close and I lost his wingtips, so I decided to crop a bit more as I like the pic.

I decided to try a wrap based on a thread over on FM.

I did this more in homage to my daughter who joined the services this summer, and also just to see if I could do it, but typically wouldn't consider something like this. This may become her camera in a few years perhaps. Cost about $30 and took a long time to get to my door.

I doubt this will seem like a good idea to many, initially including me. It was worth the attempt, gives the camera a bit more "attitude", and I hope she likes my effort commemorating her decision to give to the armed services of the US. It took a couple of hours, since there are something like 30-40 pieces, and lots of very deliberate placement of the skin parts with a tweezers.
