Mike.

Overall nice collection of different birds. They look different from the ones we have in North American. It would be even better if you can improve the focusing. Some of the pictures look soft, I wonder if it is caused by using the LCD screen for framing the pictures. Most people prefer to use the LCD screen to frame the picture out of convenience. Depending on how you hold your camera, this practice may cause softness in your pictures due to vibration.

Thanks, I do struggle with focus whether auto or manual and think I have a tendency to jerk the shutter release, all were framed through the EVF rather than the LCD.
