Jack same here for a camera for my wife.  She does well with the 5DSR + 100-400mm II but it is heavy for her. I have been considering several systems from the RX10 IV, Panasonic G9 and Olympus OMD-1 II. Like Ryan, I would plump maybe for the D500 and 300mm f/4 PF. I just wish Canon would come up with a competitor to both. The Tamron 100-400mm on the 5DSR is noticeably lighter and quite good but not for BIF. I am not giving up on my 5DIV and 400mm DO II, which I think are just superb, giving a wide aperture bare and 800mm at the other extreme, which I use for most of the time.

Well, once again we parallel one another.  I'll be interested in your decision.  It would be much more sensible to stay Canon if possible since I, like you, love my DO.  This could be a last major expenditure.  I wonder what a 5DSR2 might have to offer?

Sometime everything just works out. this is full frame cropped to 16x9 and actually added a sliver of canvas to the left side to make both sides even. i didnt think i could squeeze he in the frame as close as she was but i got her and the focus was spot on to boot lol

I had only gone to check what gulls were at the local roost when the sun appeared just as shower clouds were departing, provided a lovely blank background for a passing black-headed gull which I think transformed it's uniform plumage into something else, I hope you agree.

This little cutie of a hummingbird was in my back yard -- taken with 6D2 and 100-400LII, handheld.
