 ..... both found the problem of small birds against a distant background ...... and not the first time I've seen this ..... in general though it was praise all the way .....

  As to PDCD  AF it seems that although it uses PD and should be able to detect distance information ........ somehow in this situation it fails to see the bird at all .... and needs MF prompting ..........

Yeah, well, a bird's eye tends to be small, and if it is far away, it becomes difficult, for any camera system. However, the camera does pick up the bird itself as well, effectively like no other camera out there.

As to your other reply: of course it depends a lot on the photographer. Having said that, I have been following a bunch of photographers who do birding on POTN over the years, and they are all convinced the R5 helps them a lot.

Actually, looking at the images, most of them have well improved their game as a result, even though they were top notch already.

Specifically, check out member 'robamy' in the R5 image thread over on POTN.

Kind regards, Wim
