    Golden Oriole

    Sitting on the sofa, yesterday afternoon, I heard a golden oriole singing. I grabbed the camera, went out on the terrace and luckily it was perched on a carob tree about thirty metres away. I took some shots and heavily cropped them to get this image.

    So is the Canon R5 a bird photography body?

    Yes, it only covers a large square in the centre of the screen, but not the whole screen as with the EF 500mm L with adapter

    So is the Canon R5 a bird photography body?

    Yes. I have the mark i, but it still works extremely well with the EF/RF control ring adapter - here's a photo with this combination. https://www.birdforum.net/gallery/black-wheatear.651384/ The only thing is that I found it is better with the IS turned off, since I found that it would be on...

    So is the Canon R5 a bird photography body?

    Here's a picture taken this morning with the R5 and the 800mm f11 is stm. Its a great lens to carry round, especially when I'm out walking the dogs and gives my shoulder a rest from carrying the 500 f4. This was taken with a shutter speed of 1/3200 at iso 1000.

    So is the Canon R5 a bird photography body?

    Had about three hours today in my chair hide with the R5 on my old 500mm L mk1. Shot about 2500 frames on electronic shutter - could feel the camera warming up against my face, but no issues today and the eye AF tracking worked extremely well. My target species was the Black Wheatear and was...

    So is the Canon R5 a bird photography body?

    Have been using the R5 for just over a week now with a very old EF 500mm L f4 mk1, with the control ring adapter. Yes a very steep learning curve as my first mirrorless camera. Mechanical shutter doesnt seem to work at full speed with this lens - getting about 7- 8 fps max. EVF makes it...
