Beautiful shot, Alan!
After Your recommendation I got the RF 100-400 and now I tried DxO Deepprime.
And I like it so far! Thank You, @AlanF !(y)

New software has transformed what we can make into acceptable images.
100% agree!
This and new sensors make slower lenses usable. The combination of size, weight and price of the RF100-400 is very sweet. Oh, I forgot the mfd! Looking forward to try some DIF!

"This and new sensors make slower lenses usable" - I would add the crop cameras...

Today I went to shoot interesting plant at UH campus. If I was strictly after birds this little fellow will never pop up on such a background :)! I didn't have the time to change the settings - I was shooting the plant, just changed the focus point and adjusted in PP. Windy!!!
