    I was impressed with the IQ of the mid day bird pics. The detail of the eye of the birds was adequate.
    The rest was not a surprise, the lens usefulness is going to be light limited. The Cheetah...

    It seems like the same pixel density. I have used the M5 on my 500mm, other than the flip screen there isn't much reason to use it over the 5DsR.

    Also do not forget all the waterfalls and geysers. If I remember right you went through a waterfall phase a few years ago and there will be more opportunity for long exposure than pictures of bear.

    Joel's PP definitely increased the desirability. Brightening the reflections brings it up dramatically.

    Honest appraisal is I am not a fan. To much dark space, bird is there but doesn't really stand out. The bird feels like it is part of the background not the subject.
    You are right it is to dark.

    It has one glaring flaw and it has nothing to do with the spec sheet.
    $479 adapter to adapt to an M is overpriced, that is as much or more than the body you are attaching it to.
