Stunning bird, thanks for posting. Interesting kit combo. I use the 7D mk ii + CANON 300mm 2.8 mkii +/- the x1.4. You are shooting at an equivalent of 672 mm with the cropped sensor. How do you find that combo in low light.

Still just as beautiful and it's great to be able to see the plumage on his back too.

Thanks so much for letting us see him Paux.

So far I am happy with my combo. I don't use any denoise program and I accept some noise in the background of the photos. In extreme dark conditions, I just treat the photos as my record photos.
