Jay, can you tell me how close these small birds were? I've found my 100-500 great for really close stuff like out to 10 mts but after that i might as well just use my phone.

It's frustrating the crap out of me.

This Brown Quail was 2-3 mts away and looks good but i took quite a few other shots of Spoonbills, Herons etc that were out form 10-20 mts and they're as soft as

Those shots of the small birds were pretty close, within 15 feet. Most of them needed no cropping at all, other then getting some distractions out of the frame. The two shots of the cormorants were farther away, around 30 feet.

However, here are a couple shots that were quite a bit farther, just with the RF 1.4x converter. This heron was a decent distance off, and at 700mm still needed some good cropping, probably closer to 60 feet away.

Here's the original;

And here's the crop;

I have ones that are farther as well, without any issue at distance. Some of the shots of the jets at the local Air Force base are heavily cropped at 700mm as well.

If there's not something wrong with the lens/settings then maybe it's heat distortion from the distance? I don't know the conditions so it's hard for me to say but being in AZ I'm pretty familiar with it!

The autofocus system continues to impress me. Today I took some photos of af small relatively rare bird in Denmark. The danish name is "Vandstær" and direct translated is according to google is "Water star" sound strange. Anyway, I was shooting through some branches and in a series of 12 every single one was in focus despite branches in the way. I am sure I would not have gotten these shots if I had used my 1DX1.

Lens was EF200-400 f4 with extender enables so aperture 5.6. ISO 12800 and using electronic shutter.

The first shot was second in the series, the first one the bird sat on the branch.
The second shot was the 10th. 11th the bird is in the water.

Ok, so that's about right distance wise for what I'm getting.

60 feet is interesting, 20 mts, yeah maybe some heat distortion. It was early arvo but not a hot day. I'll post anther couple of shots when i get time to sort them.

Maybe it's just me

Thanks mate

Local Flame Robin from last weekend - Bogong high plains. The 1.4x is permanently attached to the 400mm f2.8 now as I find it impossible to see any degradation of image from when I was shooting it without to now with . Only time it comes off now is if I need to go shorter for a shot and then its straight back on again :)
