I took out the Tamron 100-400mm + M5 for a test drive. If the bird is large enough to frame and not moving too fast, the combo is a lightweight joy to use. The focus is spot on every time with no need to AFMA. The centre of the lens is very, very sharp at 400mm, up to 400mm DO II standards. The sharpness is good to the edge of the APS-C edge and not too bad at the extremes of FF. Here is a handsome chaffinch.

Thank you,

The eyes are like this because they were hiding in the middle of a dark tree, I had to use 3200 ISO :)

Perhaps I can rationalize it this way.  As a teen I got enthused about taxidermy and did many birds and the odd other creature, tanning hides and so forth.  My mother's freezer was a subject of contention due to people providing me with road kill.  At that time I was buying eyes of all descriptions and maybe the fascination wore off. :(  A Great-horned owl was one of my first, a Short-eared was another.

The eyes are truly amazing! ;)
