Yeah, it's looking like a key purpose is being fulfilled

For many birders, this camera----considering all of its assets---looks to be a real winner. (I'm not a birder, at least not one who's going to be interested in photography of them)

Is it the best option on the market? Well, that's going to be tougher to answer. I think there may be mirrorless options that may still have the edge in AF quickness and lock-on, but it seems this new Pentax is at least in the running. So, I think now it's boiling down to OVF vs EVF for birding, and then higher iso performance.

Now Pentax is truly in the discussion, so this is a plus.
