Astounding, simply wonderful capture :-)

The combination of the EOS-R and the 100-400L II really troubles me because I love some of the photos here with that combo but I have two little children to bring up :rolleyes:

So sell a kid, problem solved.. :-P:-P :lol::lol::-D:-D

When a hawk appears out back, it's one of those "grab the camera and run out of the house quick" situations. Once I got to within a football field of him, he flew away like a scared little mouse. Sparrows have more spine than these hawks. Anyways, I quickly switched to AF Expansion and tried to track him as he circled, and I can officially report that the R + 100-400 II and 2xIII TC is HORRIBLE for tracking BIF.

Birds in flight is NOT as simple as with the 1Dmk4... But I will get the hang of this Camera for sure. What I had to do today on my second hour of feeling this thing out is get them BEFORE they start picking up speed. Its just a matter of time and practice !

This Northern Harrier was about 90 yards and haulin butt... The focus was ok and of course Rookie operator error is bound to happen. Just showing what I observed with this shot. Ive also noticed my bird shots are pretty much...late ! They are already turned away from me and heading for the hills. The camera just doesn't focus as quick. But once again, practice will help. And the 1/500 with 125 ISO is not the settings I thought I had at this moment? Weird.

That's really nice.
Enough snow and exposed rock to give it a 3D appearance.
Love it.

Just come back to this.
It's actually quite stunning.
Being a lover of the great outdoors I can comprehend the feeling of being in such a place.

I've only really practiced BIFs with seagulls and mallards so far. That said, the mallards have been pretty fast while the segulls just kinda glide. I'm not completely satisfied with the results with my 100-400 II with the 1.4x so far, but attribute it more to my lack of technique and practice. I think when I get the feel of the camera down the BIFs will get better. Do you have any samples of your results with the hawk in flight, even if they're not keepers? I'd be interested to see the outcome.

I've had a result similar to this with one instance of a mallard I saw in flight. It happened very quickly and the light was still too early in the golden hour... couple that with my lack of technique with the camera, I also had a result I thought I got but didn't.

I really do believe its going to do great things. But like you said "technique" is the challenge. Its a completely different animal.
