Thanks for sharing those Frank. I was beginning to wonder if everyone had gone for the R5 and I do understand the higher MP gives more scope for cropping; although the R6 allows for those on a lesser budgetI got the R6 last year. Haven't had the chance to use it as much as I'd like to due to the current situation, but yes, this is most certainly a bird (and wildlife) camera.
From my experience so far, it tracks birds in flight with little problem even when crossing a 'busy' background, something no camera I've used before could do. Now with eye tracking I can concentrate on framing my subject and not worry about the focusing. Then there's great low light capability, fast frame rate and lovely image quality.
A couple of examples. Nothing great, but with neither did I have to think about focusing - just let the camera get on with it.
Those images look great. The impression you get from online is that the 400DO, even the mk 2, is a little soft especially with a converter but those are very sharp. What’s the focussing speed like?Had mine for 3 months: getting more impressed the more I use it: the AF system is to my mind the real asset but IQ is excellent and the ability to see what exposure you are getting through the EVF and change it on the hoof saves so many shots. these are all with the R6 canon 400DO2 and apart from Albert with the 1.4x
