Seemed to focus nicely on the RP once it got going.

Not sure why it was a bit non-cooperative at first until I turned the manual focus ring then all was well.

This was a noisy mynah bird in my yard up in a gum tree way above me. It's quite heavily cropped with some basic edits in capture one and then run through topaz ai.
There was only white cloud above so not the most appealing background.
Thanks
Paul

There's a spider under a web in the Frangipani leaf top right. Not very visible but it's there.

So I got a Canon R8 as an upgrade to the RP.
The R8 is just so much more responsive and works fine with the Tamron 100-400..
Battery life is okay but that's about it. Fortunately I have a few batteries from my EOS M cameras as well.
Animal Detect works well for the most part and 20fps is very helpful in short bursts.
It's early days and still need to work out some best settings.

Some pics from Monday morning walk to a nearby lake

This was at a distance, so was heavily cropped and processed with Topaz AI.

Photographing the Fairy Wren was a real challenge. There were a few in the trees but they wouldn't stop long enough to get a focus lock so I used the single point because of all the branches around them.

Canon R8 + Tamron 100400 + TC1.4 Caspian Tern
Tried out the 1.4 teleconverter today
And found what google says is a Caspian Tern at the local lake

Performance with the TC was good but I didn't have my shutter speed high enough for this bird.

I thought it was one of the many seagulls that inhabit the lake but thought that beak looked larger than normal
It also did a high zig-zag and dropped into the water at a decent speed. Of course I caught none of it because I wasn't expecting it and I could not react at all. Oh well.

Processed in DXO PhotoLab6 (trial version) and sharpened with TopazAI

Getting an error when I try to add the second image so I might add it later.

I probably should start a new thread as there might be more interest in the R8 than the RP.
But it seems awfully quiet here.
