V2 as a serious birder camera?
Oct 26, 2012

First a little background.

I own a D800 and a variety of lenses, including a 500mm Vr and a 200-400mm, 70-200mm vr, etc. I love the ability to crop and high ISO quality.

I also own a Olympus em5, with a 75-300mm (a 600mm equivalent) , I love its portability, but do not like the grain quality or the crop quality, some focus imprecision ,etc .

However, I am tempted by the V2 (I wasn't tempted by the V1 due to low MP count) along with the FT1 to be able to get more reach to my subject and to be able to go lighter weight.

QUESTIONS

Do you think the camera is "mature enough"?

Is focus accurate enough? fast enough with the FT1? BIF ?

I would love to hear the speculation (I know the camera is not out yet) of birders and owners of the V1 that use the FT1 .

Best regards and thanks.
