RE: Impressive GH4

I took delivery this morning of the GH4-god rid of my GX-7 (long distance birding was not quite up to it). I have been trying last few days to get some clear shots of Grebes in a local lake near my house using my Nikon D7100/D5300 and the 70-200mm F2.8 + TC x2 (III). These birds tend to hang around in the centre of the lake and quite frankly my shots were to say the least disappointing. The GX-7 no better even with Tele-conv switched on. With GH4 I was amazed with almost total clear shots each time even at long distances (hand held) with the 100-300mm lens and x2 teleconv. (8 MPIXELS).

Looks like I need a re-think.

Grebe was about 20 feet away

Grebe was about 70 feet away

This Grebe was about 200+ feet away and not bad when cropped
