Wow. BIF with 2x TC on 100-400..
How is the experience with that combo so far. Any focus (speed) issues?

Thanks for your comment. I use that combination much of the time and have no issues really. Of course the longer length at 800mm does make finding the subject a challenge at times. I just need to keep the ISO up enough to use the faster shutter speeds for flight shots.

Well, I saved up enough to get an R6 or 5DIV. I have been torn back and forth. I know the R6 would be perfect for the sports that I shoot now, along with some low key wildlife and landscape. My daughter graduates in May and after that I may not do as much sports. Maybe that will mean more wildlife and landscapes. Not really a portrait shooter. I have done a few events for folks and some family shots for Christmas cards and such. After looking at the wonderful shots here and watching some of the videos on how great the AF system is on the R6, I think I am going to go with the R6. Probably no RF lenses yet, maybe an 1.4x extender to use with my 100-400 to get me close to the reach that I am used to on my 7DII. I will be keeping the 7DII but plan to sell my original 7D and T3i. I was thinking maybe the 5DIV made more sense if I was going to have to crop but after seeing the shots from the 800 f11, I think if I really feel like I need that reach, I will purchase one of them. It has been great to read this thread and see all the photos along with links to videos and such. Not sure when I will get the purchase made, the local shop has a R6 in stock but I don't think they have any of the EF-RF adapters.


If I had to buy a camera right now, It would be an R5 or R6

you really dont have any other choice

anything being MFG from Canon is going to be R mounts and RF lens

I would decide on R5 or R6, buy the adapter and gradually buy into RF glass as needed

I would choose and R over a DSLR if i wanted to buy a body

Those that have good condition low count 5D4's and 1Dx, 1Dx2 and 1Dx3 bodies will get a lot of use from their bodies and at some point, they will have no other choice but to switch over

Here's one possible problem ( such a problem ;-)a ) with the 800 f11. A Cooper's Hawk lands 10-12' from you, so you scramble back to get into focusing range (MFD ~6 meters) without tumbling into the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal right behind you, and still don't get it fully in-frame. Until I bought the 800 f11 I never ever had a hawk land that close!

LOL

What you could do in such a situation, is take two shots and stitch them together in post.

And even though the tail tip is missing, it's still a very nice shot, Steve. The hawk looks really good!

You're always thinking, Levina!! Thanks for the kind words!

Nah, just drop the body with the 800mm and switch to backup with RF 100-500mm :-D

Hey, I'm thinking about it! Actually I had my 100-400/1.4 ext with me, but I was hoping for eagles and swans, likely at distance, hence the 800.

Lesson learned. I will hold on to my 100-400mm II (will add 2x TC at some point). :-P
Excellent shot by the way.
Did you fell in the canal after the shot?  :p

A juvenile Heron swooping in. They often come down to "my" canal to sit on a houseboat, preen a little, sleep a little. And living on the third floor (not counting ground floor) gives me a rather unique shooting angle with a nice view of the dorsal side of the bird. Downside with Herons is that their head becomes a bit odd, like a little triangle that doesn't quite seem to fit such a big body. :-P

I took this just before nightfall. Hardly any light left, but the R6 got him just the same.

On a birding outing, I came across a small farm raising some goats and llamas. This young Billy Goat looked photogenic.

rndman, thanks for your comments! I managed to stay dry! I have the 100-400 ii and 1.4 iii, but I'm also thinking about the 2x; the combo with 2x seems to give pretty good results.

Recently sold my 6D mark II and acquired an R6. Can’t wait to see what kind of images this thing can produce in low light and for sports action shots.

He has a remarkably friendly face. He looks almost wise. Not the look I usually associate with goats.
