First Bird Shoot with Z9 & Z 800mm PF

I had the chance to go bird hunting at a San Diego County lake this morning. While I missed the focus on just a few of the images, I was astounded at how well the image stabilization (sport setting) worked handheld. The slowest shutter speed I used was 1/1600 sec, even when my arms were very tired from holding the Z9 and 800mm for 1.5 hours, not a single frame had motion blur.

Here is a night heron looking for breakfast. Please click on the image for a larger view.
