R5 + 100-400mm II set at 371mm (don't make that mistake on a prime). The first is my favourite pose for a Nuthatch, looking down, at iso5000. The second, looking up is at iso8000. Both are rather cropped. Processed in DxO PL4 - DeepPRIME required for these.

Hadn't read and said to myself, they should be better but now I understand.

Finally, got my hands on R5 and it is a different beast and eye-AF is fantastic even with slow lenses.
R5 + RF 800mm is a good combo set for farther away birds that does not affect wallet, arm and elbow that much.
All pictures last weekend at -18C right after the snow storm. There is some ice build up on the feather and forehead of the birds.
