Testimonial for joint effort of 500pf, +x1.4ii, and Z6

Not scientific but much, much further then you average backyard trials on stationary targets.

500pf (VR sport-on) , + x1.4ii, on a Z6 (IBIS-on), not on a tripod, handheld, AF-C, single point, 1/250, ...amazing what IBIS and VR combined can do over (cold) water, hovering helicopter, and shaky hands!

It's no humming bird, but more then legible at approximately mile (2km) from shore.

750x750 100% crop

600x600 100+crop

Looks pretty good.

Here's a shot of a cormorant handheld at 1/200sec on a breezy day, so the bird may have been swinging in the breeze:

IBIS + VR works well.

Ah, I didn't know this -- does Nikon have cooperative IS, where in-lens and sensor-shift mechanisms can work together? So far I'd only heard about this on Olympus bodies.
