That is very good It has the same pixel density as a M4/3 so you get a lot of crop advantage and the lens at F11 can deal with the light from the bright moon and good light but what is it like for low light I'm curious how it can handle high ISO with wildlife. I plan to use mine for Astro as well when it arrives.

I tend to avoid high ISO on wildlife. I find feather detail tends to be wiped out when i apply noise reduction. some subjects can be done at high ISO, it depends on the situation.

So my strategy at the moment is avoid poor light, and don't be afraid to use slow shutter speeds and electronic shutter, -the Image stability is capable of delivering good quality, maybe not in every shot of a burst, but i generally find a usable shot at what used to be impossibly low shutter speeds.

I've been doing some testing with the R7 and RF 800. Great combo in decent to great light though finding birds with that focal length is challenging to say the least. As you mention, you can take pictures at >5000 ISO and they will 'clean up' with software but there is too much lost detail. I've taken images of birds ranging from wrens to bald eagles. As is the norm, you will get better keepers in better light with that combo. I've been sticking to my adapted 100-400 MII for birding. I haven't really need to break out the 800 yet. I only tried it for testing.

I had too much cloud cover to try a full moon image. Maybe next month.
