So glad that I chose the Z7 over the Z6
10

I usually don't shoot birds but while I was using my 24-70/2.8 S for landscape shots at the coast of the Baltic Sea in Germany I saw these two Barn swallows. I had my DX 50-250mm with me but I thought that I might miss the shot if I decided to switch lenses so I did my best to sneak very slowly towards them. At about 5-6 meters distance I couldn't get any closer because of a fence that marked the edge of a nature conservation area. So I aimed at the scene and a couple of shots later I got this:

These are 1:1 pixels at Full HD resolution, so very heavily cropped. Something that I couldn't have done with the Z6. Since I don't do birdshooting this might be an opportunity that won't come again in a very long time, so I'm very glad that I got away with at least FHD resolution.

In 4k the crop would look like this:

Maybe I will use this as a background for my 4k monitor even though the birds are a bit small in this version.
