Great photos, Ken! (not only the last one, but also the previous ones).

I just got a new 200-600mm, but I still have hard time to get a sharp image out of it (I am using it on a7Rii). I am not sure whether it is the AF of the "old" a7Rii or my technique which needs to be improved (I believe the latter is the reason).

Anyways, I had only few minutes on my way to work to play with it, and here is the only relatively acceptable photo I managed to get out of this beast...

Don't worry with practice it gets better. We have all been through this phase with this big lens but we don't talk about it and only show the good shots

My recent favourite, the light was just perfect

Thank you Fred and Charles.
I am actually surprise how well the auto focus of a7RII works - I can only compare it to what I am used to from a700, a900, a99 and a7R and the a7RII is much better. But I guess I need to try the newer camera models to see what real good auto focus is...

Some stellar shots in this thread. And swallows! You can literally tell how fast they are in the shots above.
