bought this along with the ef100-400 as my birding set up. excellent combo
Great camera and system but sold to go all in on om-1. a downgrade in some things but a valuable weight saving for my aging bones
excellent when paired with the canon 7D II
Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 GM OSS

wonderful lens. nearly kept it and the a7riv. my age together with gear weight added up to a sad good bye.
