    Thanks! That is a great Hummingbird shot, are you using multiple flashes?

    Thanks....no Joel, all my "backyard" bird shots are done w/natural light. Too much work w/flash setups and breakdowns.

    Also, in case you haven't discovered this; click on the photo and it connects to Flickr for the capture's EXIF info.

    Stunning shot, Bill. Love the wing blur contrasting the pin sharp body. Nicely done.

    Thanks Joel.

    I understand driving the shutter speed up as much as possible, that is why I though the 1D X would give you more room to do that with better ISO performance.

    I do not get the more pixels comment. Although there is a little, it seems small. That is, if the FF equivalent for your 500mm on the 1D IV is 650mm with 16 MP. As opposed to your 700mm (500mm w/ a 1.4X) on the 1D X and 18 MP. It doesn't seem to be that much different.

    It is not like you are capable taking a bad picture with either camera... so my comments are more academic than anything.

    Thanks Mark....I prefer my HB captures to show some wing blur.

    I think you're correct. That's why I said I am fooling around to some degree and not usually choosing one over the other based on much scientific analysis. In my experience there is no doubt the 1DX handles high ISO better than the MKIV.

    PS....what I meant about having more pixels on the subject was IF using the same focal length lens and same distance to subject then the MKIV will have more pixels on the subject than the 1DX and may be capable of better detail on the smaller birds.

    Also, for the record, I take plenty of bad images.....they just aren't seen by anyone here
