Default "Ducks" Panasonic 100-400

Here are some duck shots taken at a lake only a short push bike ride away from my house. Saw these ducks there a couple weeks a go while on a bike ride and they are very friendly as a lot of people feed them. Thew the camera in my backpack and off on my mountain bike to get a few shots with the new lens, nothing special but a good chance to have a bit of play with it since I haven't had many opportunities.

Great, looks like the 100-400mm is a very sharp lens.

How about focus tracking ? did you have chance to try it on some birds in fly?

Thanks Marcelo, did try some BIF not something I've done a lot of but had a go at some seagulls. The C-AF tracked well but definitely a challenge at 400mm with the narrow FOV and camera shake (a lot more than 300mm).

Wow, those looks very sharp to me.

I think your panning skills with the F1 races help to get shoots like that :-)
