P1000 focusing: its F8 and contrast detect focusing.

A deadly combo and fast track to insanity for the small bird photographer?


..had read about this concern elsewhere also..

..will be looking forward to see how photographers will use the P1000 to it's potentials..


I take bird photos and if I can get what I want at 1000mm or 2000mm which would keep the Aperture under F8 I would be happy . As for birds in flight, I can get them under 1000mm . It is possible to get decent flight photos but have to have shutter pressed halfway down and be ready as birds like ospreys , or eagle and egrets , herons fly by . Having Phase detection AF would have been nice .

Good advice, and yes having Phase detection AF would be nice, but I am happy with all the improvements they did make!!
