Both shots of Swallows are yours not mine. The first one shot using your A1+200-600mm looks sharper around the eye, head, body and more detailed than your 100-400mm shots.

The 100-400mm shots are blurrier around the eye and elsewhere compared to your 200-600mm shot.

Here is a better series for you - if you can hold your 200-600 for long enough to catch this then they should come out pretty much just as sharp - I think you would be hard pressed to tell the difference.

I should have some decent full frame ones with the a9 and 200-600 and 100-500 - but it might take a while to find them.

For this the big advantage of the 100-400 is size and weight - sharpness not so much.

Most of these are at 1/8000 f8 so you can do that easily with the 200-600.

I don't know if it is possible to get much better than this. For sure the a9/R5 fall over at 20fps here since they won't capture all the action.

Amazing sequence. Shooting at 1/8000 was a good choice. The A1 was focused on the eye until the bird turned its head and then when turned back the focus seems to be elsewhere.

Yep - looses it a little in 0.06 of a second !!
