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...

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

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

Thanks

I meant to point out the harrier changed direction on a dime because it saw a little bird. I think it was getting late and hadn't found anything mice to eat and may have been tempted to go after the little bird

shutter speed a bit too slow because just before this, I was taking a picture of another bird that was just sitting

These are great shots!

It's really helpful to see them for myself because after twenty years on A-mount I'm on the verge of switching to E-mount, and my plan is to go for this exact camera/lens (+TC) combination. Unfortunately for me the A7R4 is going to be stretching my budget too far and I'm going to only manage to afford a well-used A9.

Short-eared Owl is one of my favourite birds and definitely a species I would hope to be photographing too (I unfortunately missed them this last weekend at a usually very reliable spot for them near London, but they usually stay for the winter). At the moment I'm using an A77II with a Sigma 500mm f/4.5 which is decent enough but the Sigma TC is pretty poor, both in focusing and IQ.

as much as I love shooting birds with my a9, I'm gonna start giving the a7R4 a chance... simply because of the 61MP, the ability to crop a ton and still have a decent amount of MP left is a HUGE plus!
