You're right that the price paid for such a huge FL is a small sensor, that makes those cameras unsuitable for action and low light, let alone a combination of them.

However you got impressive BIF images, particularly the last one!

Thank you for sharing and happy shooting,


P.S. Thank you very much for the useful tips when shooting with the RDS

Cheers Augustin,

I think it's great to be testing new gear + trying to get a bit more out of it or finding its limits etc.  Guess that's what I've been doing with photography for the last 50+ years!

Thanks for the kind comments + one other useful tip I've just become aware of is to extend the zoom to a suitable length before using!  With not now looking through the viewfinder and seeing the zoom amount - a couple of times I've just turned on the camera and the sight + taken a distant pic via the dot sight at 28mm zoom!:-D
