The latest firmware update for the R6 (1.5.0) sure is making a difference. I find the Eye-AF/tracking to be considerably better than before. It now finds a bird without hesitation, even, and this is a big change, when the bird is quite a distance away and even in low light.

After updating the firmware I tested it out on the birds that fly by my house, gulls mostly, some magpies, crows, etc. and the difference is very noticeable. The Eye-AF now finds the bird quick and doesn't stray the way it used to. It's as if the Eye-AF is glued to the bird.

One thing the Eye-AF/tracking was also bad at was big birds, close by. At the close of every day a resident Grey Heron sweeps in from up high and sits on one of the houseboats in the canal, right where my apartment is. The R6 had serious problems finding the eye of the bird as it came down. I had the impression that the bird was too big and the camera sort of lost the big picture and instead of on the eye it would focus on light coloured patches, like on the heron's shoulders. So I had to switch to spot AF to get sharp, in focus shots. But no more. Today I waited for the heron and sure enough, in he came, diving down. It was close to sundown, very low light. But the Eye-AF found the eye immediately and stayed there as I tracked him. I took a burst of 35 shots, a sequence starting as he came down to landing on the houseboat below me. Only two were so-so, all the rest were in focus. This is a big improvement. Here's one of the Heron shots. Minimal editing. Cropped slightly for reasons of composition, added some light, resized and ran it through Topaz Denoise.

Brown Hare taken in very thick fog at around 5 minutes after sunrise. Still amazed by this cameras low light ability and with the electronic shutter this Hare didn't even know I was there.

Another one last night. It was dark then, but cold enough for the sensor to stay cool at high ISO:

A cormorant. Often I can see them coming from afar but this one appeared from behind me unexpectedly.
It was almost dark. But the R6 got him just the same.

This one is really cool, besides I like the finishing, usually what I see with the R6 is slightly sharpened
