These were done with the 400mm DO II +2xTCIII, which I find heavy but versatile because of using it also at 400mm f/4 and 3.3m mfd. If the 800mm f/11 becomes available on sale or return, I'll give it it a try and keep if the IQ is good enough in comparison. I keep things simple and use EFCS, continuous shooting, cRAW and the same button assignments as you.Those are really beautiful shots, AlanF. Were you using a RF 800mm f11 lens, or the 400 DOII & 2xTC? I've got the RF 800 f11 lens and really enjoyed how lightweight and easy to use it is, but didn't think it could produce high IQ shots like you just did.
Out of curiosity, do you use full or 1st curtain electronic shutter? Single or continuous shooting? cRaw or Raw?
I've come to use one back button for spot AF and another for animal eye AF and that's working pretty well for me. Do you do something similar?
I'm always interested in possible ways to make using the R5 easier & better.
