D850 with Nikon AF-S 200-500mm f/5.6 E ED VR

Today I was trying my beloved nikon 200-500 on my D850 and I am very happy with the results.

Pictures were taken handheld, with VR on.

The images are totally unprocessed, as if they came straight out of the camera, with exception of ©

Picture style was set to A(uto), new since D850, and I love it. Just enough sharpness and saturation with pleasing natural colours.
Camera was set to M (as I shoot most of the time), F5.6 and auto iso.

You might think, or react, "It's just a pigeon...", and that's right but I don't have eagles in my garden, and feather detail is what counts in a camera and lens evaluation. If feather detail is OK for the pigeon, it will be OK for an eagle as well.

!!! --> I posted the full size jpegs so you can check sharpness and details.

Shooting distance about 10-15 meters:

Shooting distance about 50 meters I guess...

You can find more pictures with this camera/lens combination, also some close ups, on my website.

Thanks for your attention and kindest regards,

I like better one decent picture in a day than 10 bad ones in a second.
