Stay at home

I don't think you "fail" but if you want to "fail" better - do it! Anyway it's we all (+/-) use to do - step by step or faster.
I find all of the hype about the latest models a bit much, with every little advance being magnified out of importance. In reality, the 7DII + 100-400mm II enabled me to do just about everything I wanted. The IQ of the 5DSR is just about as good as anything coming since, and I was able to get good BIF shots with it despite its slow fps and good focus only in the centre. The R5 20 fps or 12 fps does enable me to get sequences I coudn't get before, and its bird eyeAF is a useful plus as is its ability to focus at the edge of the frame and with narrow apertures. I suppose for those specialising in extreme action the enhanced AF is more important but for me the improvements are incremental except for dragonflies in flight.Nice shots Alan (not only because of the performance of the camera/lens)!
P.S. I hardly can compare Z9, R5 or R3 (and even the R1) - simply because I never had one of these in my hands!
