I had been behind on restocking all the feeders in the yard...kinda had a lot going on. But I restocked them all yesterday. The birds were back today, and will continue to be back as long as I keep them stocked. I wanted to see if the 2x on the 70-200 was ok on the a1...since it leaves a bit to be desired on the other cameras. It is better than the a9 and a7iii. Still not tack sharp, but good enough, especially when cropped. This was shot at 400, then it got cropped from the 8900 down to 4000 and then downsized. It makes me really want the 200-600...oh, and the Bird Eye AF...freaky...

I was really disappointed that I couldn't use the 2x on the 70-200gm. Such a shame. I even tried to manual focus and it didn't turn out good.

When I was looking for a long focal length zoom I was torn between the 100-400 and the 200-600. I've really enjoyed my 200-600. It's a big beast, but no regrets. It has become my favorite lens.

Sorry for your loss.

I haven't been able to bring myself to get another dog since I lost my childhood dog many years ago.


Thank you.

I'm so sorry for your loss! It's always hard to lose a furry friend.
I've lost a number of my 4 legged buddies I'm the course of my life and know that feeling.

I mean, you can use it...it just isn't all that sharp!  :p

Yeah, problem is I want both. The 100-400 is a lot easier to use at the race track. The 200-600 is better in the backyard with the birds and wildlife when I get to do that sort of thing. I just can't buy both right now. Or one for that matter, gotta recover from the a1.

The a1 video is killing me...the H.265 is problematic, my PC doesn't have the right CODEC, so I installed it, and now my PC crashes and all sorts of other issues are happening now, which makes no sense at all. Thankfully, for now, H.264 is possible with 4k/120 as well, I thought originally it was not...but it is. Still learning this thing, the menu requires breadcrumbs.

My Network card might also be failing, that might be part of the issues...dunno...

I am seriously considering a1. How constraining is a tilt screen vs a fully articulating screen? I am thinking on the lines of low angle or high angle compositions. Articulating screens make out very easy for such angles although I do find looking sideways on a screen rather disorienting on articulating screens when shooting horizontally.

Fujifilm cameras seem to have best of both worlds but would really appreciate any feedback you may have in this regard.


Desire to learn; a camera & a few other things.

Never had any sort of tilt or articulating screen on my Canon bodies when I was shooting with Canon, used a tilt screen for the first time when I moved over to sony back in the NEX7 days and all of my A7RX bodies and now the A1 have all had tilt screens. Honestly I never felt the need for an articulating screen for the stuff I shoot. I shoot very low to the ground at times ( Mushrooms, insects etc ) and the tilt screen is really useful in those situations. The only time a tilt screen is a pain is if I'm shooting very low to the ground in the portrait orientation, it's basically useless in that scenario.

Sums up my thoughts too.

I was going into Bed Bath and Beyond of all places to buy some curtains, when I heard the roar. I spent the next two hours watching the Angels practice for this weekend's Great State of Maine airshow from the parking lot. Glad I had the A1 and 200-600 handy.

Great shot ! They just performed last weekend, in the air show at the city where I work ( London, Ontario). Unfortunately, I didn’t get to go. I wish I could have been there.

Things are so dry here that CalFire launches their aircraft for even the smallest wildfires. This OV-10 spotter plane was over the house at low altitude coming back from a 2 acre fire that was quickly put down. The skies are very hazy around here due to smoke from the Caldor Fire up neat Lake Tahoe.
