Thanks again. I got lucky this time and it let me slip up on it-usually flies off when I start to approach.

G'day Nick

I'll use one answer for your 2 posts
Well done with a choice of camera mate

I have discovered many things with mine since it arrived
1- it is so good with NR that I now use ISO=Auto(800) as normal > this gives me good shutter speeds for most pix, even in 'low' light [I used to use iso-200 as normal, with iso-800 for lo-light specials]
2- I find that the lens is very sharp in the 400mm to 600mm range, but "I" am killing that sharpness by breathing !!! - so camera work at long lens shots has had to be worked on. I use 'burst-Lo speed' lots of times, as I find that the 1st image often has a tiny bit of camera movement, but the 2nd or 3rd where I'm just 'holding' not 'pressing the button' often gives me a perfectly sharp pic
3- birds & animals are never easy - they flit away so quickly

also eyesight > seems we're both "1946-rs" and I have eyesight issues too
- have floaters in the right eye & have lost 50% sight in left eye > but I keep on shootin'

Keep going mate ~ any more images ???
Regards, Phil

Thanks for looking Phil. Don't think I'll have any regrets getting this camera.

I have been shooting at ISO 400 and 800 with the majority in ISO 800 and no problems so far. You are correct about the fast and skittish animals and birds.

Sorry about your eyesight, but lets just keep on shooting. I'm kind of stuck being very close to the house as help my wife take care of her 91 year old mother who lives with us and has been falling a lot lately. Not a lot right here to photo that I haven't gotten yet, except for some deer that come into the yard. I'm trying to time the visits so I can get some photos-especially 4 bucks with some good racks.
