    Answering my own question about super-compressed RAW, I see that Nikon has already done that with the Z9. It drops the 45 MP image down to 22 MB, and gives over 1800 continuous shots at 20 fps...

    Yes I think that Sony has scored a bit of a coup with that camera. The guy that I go out for owls with switched from Nikon to the A1 (before the Nikon Z9 came out), and he's delighted with it. Plus...

    It's obviously feasible to make a high MP camera in a 1-series body, but then it becomes something that it probably wasn't intended to be. The "problem" with high MP is that sports photographers...

    I would definitely jump to a mythical R1 for these features:
    - Bigger battery (like the R3)
    - Track-pad style AF-ON button (ditto)
    - Dual CF Express cards
    - At least 30 MP. I like the R5...

    Great summary and great idea to start this thread. I'll add some more comments to this later I'm sure, but right now I just want to say that I agree with you on all of those points.

    For now, just...

    Hey thanks! This creek is lined up pretty nicely with the Three Sisters, which is the iconic mountain trio in Canmore. What's kind of fun here is that it's really just a small trickle of water and...

    Pierre, I feel your pain --- out here the mountains block my view too :rolleyes:

    Seriously though, great shot. I love the light and misty clouds. You should toss this in the weekly contest!

    Thanks! I appreciate the feedback. Yes there's a lot to be said for a wide aperture and nice background blur. As I looked through my images, I could see that within a single burst from my 1DXIII,...

    Here's the 1DXIII image after running it through Sharpen AI. I used the "Too soft - normal" setting with auto parameters after that. Definitely it fixes the issue fully, and doesn't make it look...

    Thanks for the feedback! Yes I'm going to have to go with the conclusion that the lens is front-focusing a bit. I calibrated it at 500 mm but not at 700 mm --- I guess I should do that. So score...

    R5 @ 500 mm versus 1DXIII @ 700 mm

    I found a sleepy owl in a tree today, so I had time to take a variety of shots. I used the R5 with the spiffy 100-500 lens handheld, and then I set up my 1DXIII with the 500 f/4 and 1.4 TC on a...

    Wow thanks! I have to say that I also really liked Mark's image of his grandaughter. The rim of backlight and the floral setting really make the scene.

    It's true, I'm asking quite a lot of the technology and I suppose to be able to identify the bird on the treetop at all is pretty good. I was hoping that the focus would catch up to the owl when it...

    You're quite right! But there are a few things I would love to have in a mythical R1:
