Whitethroat 5DSR/100-400mm II @560mm
Great detail. What ISO?
My bog standard 640. I leave the EXIF on every photo so you can download and get all the settings. I really do like the 5DSR. If you get too close and have excessive detail with all the barbs showing on the feathers, you can get Moire. But for these further off shots that's never a problem and it wins out on extracting what detail there is.
Thanks Alan. You know I've been pretty critical of the 1DX2 but as time passes a few key points have been surfacing about my expectations. For example, I have made many references and comparisons to my 6D and the shots I got with it using 300 X2. Fortunately, I remember distinctly from some winter shots, that I did not like the results I was getting at ISO 1600 or above, especially if cropping was significant. Well, I'm now shooting the 1DX2 up to ISO 3200 and finding the results to be surprisingly acceptable. Likewise I was having AF issues but I was shooting backlit in low light at high ISOs so maybe expecting too much. Not to mention doing a lot of AF @ F8 with off center focus points. Still not 100% sure though.
