High ISO Leopard Kenya

6.40 am Masai Mara, a bit gloomy, I had about 10 seconds before this magnificent animal melted into the forest. Auto ISO limited to 1600, wide open, aperture priority - check the exif - ISO 1600, 250mm f/2.8, 1/40 (one fortieth!) second, bean bag. Couldn't believe there was a shot there (needed a bit of work):

Would a D3 or 1Ds III with 500 f/4 have done better?
