Eye AF works well and picked up the swallows eyes frequently. EVF is super nice with electronic shutter but blackout and initial lag is not great with mechanical shutter. Anyway with some work it is possible to get some good shots.

Focus acquisition and tracking is very good - maybe a bit behind the Sony against busy backgrounds but overall I think quite a lot more keepers possible because of faster frame rate. Detail is retained pretty well even at 1/4000s.

I think most will be pretty pleased with the performance - highlight recovery is not great and no zebras for stills makes it more difficult to nail exposure.

BTW Video animal AF works pretty well and you can see the tracking box as it hangs on to the swallows - unfortunately you really need 240fps for swallows - everything is very choppy at 120fps. Still it should track bigger birds very well.

Electronic shutter is a disaster for swallows
