I finally caught up with some local Short Eared Owls yesterday. Absolutely superb birds to watch hunting, even if they were at a bit of distance. This is where the RIV comes into it's own for me. Huge crops on some of these, especially shot 3, which is cropped from the already slightly cropped shot 2. The first shot was taken from about 75 yards. I also have to say that the focussing is spot on again. What focus issue :) DSC01807 copy.jpg DSC01811 copy.jpg DSC01811-2 copy.jpg DSC01818 copy.jpg DSC01819 copy.jpg DSC01820 copy.jpg DSC01821 copy.jpg DSC01822 copy.jpg DSC01824 copy.jpg DSC01827 copy.jpg DSC01848 copy.jpg DSC01866 copy.jpg DSC01869 copy.jpg

Great shots, Kev. That must have been exciting. The A7R4 really comes into it's own on that set.

Cheers chaps. Jeff, yes it does really come into it's own when birds are distant, helped by how good the 200 600 is.
Steve. Absolutely superb birds. I'll be going back a few times.
