CommentThe first BIF image I have processed captured with the Canon R5. The AF with 300 mm f/2.8 II + 2x III extender was surprisingly fast and had no difficulty tracking the bird. I have used electronic shutter at 20 fps. Things happened fast and so I was unaware of EVF lag. The distance to the bird was about 20m and the busy background was about 20 m further back. The hi-res crop was 4200 px wide before downsizing to the finished size of 1800 px. Comments or questions welcome.
