Perhaps you should then get teleconverters, even FE 100-400 can be used with those - and if the zoom and teleconverter yields unacceptable apertures for low light conditions, there is always FE 2.8/400 GM prime...


I DO use the 1.4x TC, but the problem is, birds are still small, and not always close enough.

As for the 400mm F2.8, that'll happen the day I win the lottery... for now, I can't justify it

I should also add/remind... since I don't think it's been brought up in this conversation yet... The a9 has something that really set itself on a whole other level... and that's the no-blackout screen. This is something that... once you've used it for action/sports/birding photography, it's really hard going back to a camera that has blackouts. As I already mentioned before I own both the a9 and the a7RIII, and there are times when I'll actually try using the a7RIII for birding because it would give me more room to crop... but almost every time I do this, I end up going back to the a9 before the day's over, simply because that no-blackout feature is just awesome
