Both should be ok for birding. If you are satisfied with the...(more)

FF, so be it and exploit it to the fullest. I have tested both A900 and A850 and both were functional for birding. A900 test shots here - A900 Test Shots with Bigma DG and A900 + Sigma 300mm f2.8 Test Shots here . To me, APS-C format is my preferred way for birding as it gives me that extra subject size at a given focal length for easier/better framing, tracking, mood timing, etc. I would rather do the initial cropping in the field and have more fun. Recognizing these advantages from my point of view, I was able to make the most of it.

In summary, it is a preference that should be ok both ways.
