Not ready to ditch the Panasonic 100-400

With the arrival of a significant snowstorm I was delirious with joy because birds shot in snow are extra special.

About a month ago I got a Sony RX10 iv, which I love for its "all in one-ness" and lighter weight for long zoom shots.

Today, we had so many birds at our feeders that I just couldn't keep up with them, and the long wait for the Sony lens to zoom out (powered only) was frustrating, along with the fact that when I turned off the camera, it returned to its widest angle.

Put the Panasonic 100-400 on my EM10 ii and shot away, a bit frustrated by its stubbornness at grabbing focus, possibly somewhat related to my nose changing focus points, but it was nice to put it down and not the the lens retract to wide angle!

The original was a jpg image because I had forgotten to return to my default raw+jpg setup after shooting in-camera hdrs.
