All in on P950
4

After years work, etc... I’ve finally started birding again with a vengeance.  So naturally, I want to capture some of the species that I observe.  But, having owned everything from the D4S to D7100 t0 D800 and D500 at various times, I just don’t want all that weight anymore, besides the fact I’ll be lugging about 9 lbs. of scope and tripod.

After spending much time reading, researching and speaking with people, it came down to the Sony Rx-10 iv vs. P1000 vs. P950.  I really did love the specs on the Sony, but its years-old tech that is in need of an upgrade.  And it’s expensive its purpose.

The P1000 I’ve messed around with a bit, and it’s bulky and heavy.  I don’t think I really need the 3000mm reach - I’ll have my scope and plan on practicing some digiscoping - and the timing of the P950 could not be better.  Most of my photography work will center on close-up warblers at the Biggest Week in Ohio, and songbirds in other places.  I’m placing my order with B&H this afternoon, and and pretty stoked!
