Very nice capture under difficult light/dark circumstances. Good exposure imo.
I looked at your flickr account and saw a lot of very nice bird pictures, taken with an oldie (400/4.5) I also own. I'm struggling with micro af with that lens especially for objects further away.

Thanks Fred! Already pushed them quite a bit from pretty much black, they look about as good as they are going to get without looking unnatural.

Both me and the bird was caught out, bird by a wave and me by it all of a sudden taking to the wing.

Nice exposure Johan.
Pity the water wasn't smoother for a better reflection.



And these Swallows I just couldn't nail then realised I hadn't changed the shutter speed after the duck. Hard to focus anyway with a background like this.

The flying duck is cool, even with the not perfect reflection

Thanks Chris and Jorg, all the above were taken with my first trial of the A7R4 and I must say I'm impressed with its focussing capabilities.

I think the operator's capabilities had something to do with it as well
