Hi SonyR1,

I will never get rid of my R-1, unless it is upgraded someday. The image quality and the lens is top caliber.

At Photo Expo I found the A100 to have a very noisy mirror. I believe it would scare away wildlife.

I shot the ducks with my h9 at 68.4 mm which is equivalent to 408 mm on a 35mm camera. Handheld. No PP. It was ISO 80, f5.0, SteadyShot was on.

Here is another shot a few minutes earlier at full 15x, 465mm, handheld. They only had the one baby duck. He kept up with his parents, :
