I never used the Fuji; the SD15 focusing is much better than the SD14's, I have both. I go frequently to Shuttleworth shows and only use the SD15 for flying aircraft. Also the SD15 has 11 frames memory, while the SD14 is only 6.

However, I would not buy the SD15 for flying birds, the focusing is simply not suitable. I have however shown here photographs of those shows.

The lens I use is the original 70-200mm (no macro, built 2005) with a 1.4 extender. This setup may be lighter than your lens, that is also a factor. If so, I hope you have Arnold Schwarzenegger type biceps!
