    Yep...but it does help when the old gear includes a 500 f/4 II. That thing is a beauty.

    Just some more evidence....

    Recent birds

    Today I got up courage to try some BIF shots. This is HARD!! (but I suppose everyone already knows that).
    Also got a few amusing shots of birds being birds. Whenever I try any bird shots, I get deeper appreciation for the quality of the work posted by the stalwarts in this forum.

    I'm right there with you by the way... I have found it incredibly challenging. Based on the recent M6 posts, I'm thinking about moving my 400mm to my M100 for more reach.

    Great pose on the first Jays shot. Here's my latest attempt.

    Love the nutcrackers!

    I catch focus on more birds compared to when I started, but I still miss many shots. Last night some barn swallows were easy to find near the house, but they did not care to come very close to any place I stood.
