Here's one out of my office window ... I don't know the name of this bird ... can anyone help identify? (its the same size of a sparrow)
Image made with Nikon D7100 + 18-300mm VR at 300mm, f/8, 1/640 sec, ISO 800 ... and cropped to death.
Edit: I just found out from a book (which I bought a few years but did not bother to read ) that its the Indian Silverbill (apparently it is also know as White-throated Munia)
Very impressive - but I wouldn't call that cropped to death. Seeing the quality you got out of the D7100 led me to the excellent thread on the 70D D7100 shoot out in which you contributed. The D7100 came out better on IQ, but the 70D on AF. How consistent is the AF on the D7100 - the biggest drawback on the 7D and the reason I upgraded to the 5DIII is the poor reproducibility of its autofocus. After the review by Michaelthemaven I am tempted in two directions as I want a crop for bird photography and have given up waiting for the 7DII, the IQ of the D7100 against an improved autofocus in the 70D. What do you reckon Rienz?
