Very nice.
Both deserve high praise.
They are easy to get absorbed in and appreciate the changing altitude of the sun illuminating more at the same time casting differing shadows.
A fascinating time of day to be observing

Might I ask a sincere favor?

As an owner of a G1 that I love, what was the "final" verdict on image quality v. G1 and focus time and accuracy v. G1? I don't really care about the push/pull thing and dust. I've had mine forever and the hype of that doesn't bother me. I actually kind of like the speed and ease of use of the push/pull I have.

Just don't want to read through 700+ posts. It's not lazy. Just time I don't want to waste. I not asking for a Wiki write-up. Just a few sentences sentences would be greatly appreciated from someone who's kept up.

For what it matters, I shoot an R, an 80D, a 5D Mk III, a M6 Mk II, and a 6D. I also adapt for video to a couple of Sony a6xxs.

Thanks!

Significantly better in IQ, focus speed, and accuracy.

I shot the G1 for a couple of years, and it just didn't have the sharpness I wanted (yes, I'm a pixel peeper). I bought a 300 2.8 II with extenders, and that fixed my sharpness issues. But at the cost of flexibility. When I heard the 100-400 II was being released, I pre-ordered it through my local camera shop and got one on release day. After that, my 300 2.8 II just sat in the closet. I sold it a couple years later, and don't miss it at all. I like to show the photo below to demonstrate the fine detail capabilities of the 100-400 II. I also shoot airplanes (sample below). The 100-400 II is fast and accurate in focusing and stabilization. In every way the II exceeds the G1.

Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

Great lens, not only for wildlife but for its ability to shoot up close
