First try with G8+100-400 - birds and moon

I posted elsewhere on here about the problems I'd been having with my Nikon V2's 70-300 cx lens and ended up buying the Panasonic kit as an alternative.  I was an early adopter of Panasonic's G series cameras but moved on because of the poor AF.  These are my first attempts with the 100-400, all hand-held and they seem more than OK by my standards.  Although I'll do some side-by-side testing when I get the 100-300 cx back from Nikon it's no surprise to already see the benefits of the better, larger sensor in the G80 and also to find myself struggling with BIF compared with the V2.  I know others have done really well with BIF, so I've a lot to learn about settings etc.
