The only shot at an eagle. This was an unbroken sequence. I had to take what I could get, and my only shots were heavily shaded.

Hi Greg,

Judging from the clarity and sharpness, the C-AF of the E-5 worked as advertised. Although dark, the Eagles sequence is especially sharp.


Glad to see that camera and lens are back in the field.

Very good Eagle shots considering the angle the light was at...!

That series of 5 shots would not have happened with the E-3. The focus system is not up to the standard of the D-3, but it is a whole lot less frustrating than fighting with the E-3 in C-AF mode.

I could have used some positive exposure compensation here. I was concentrating on gulls, trying to catch them when the sun was largely at my back, when I discovered the big boy (the only one that took flight while I was there) took flight. I only had time to swing, auqire, and fire off the sequence. The buffer fills quite quickly with super fine and jpeg being stored.

I was using all focus points, which was doing quite well when there was only sky for a background.
