Went out this morning with the intentions of shooting Short Eared Owls but instead found myself shooting almost nothing but Harriers. That's the way is goes something we shoot what gets out in front of us.

Equipment question.
I see the 600mm prime on the d5, and a sony a9 and an $1800 200-600mm- both with 1.4 tx.
How would you compare the shooting and images? I am using the 200-600 with a a7riv and really like it- but have not shot with the 600 prime a lot yet.
Just curious what I am missing.
thanks

Oh my God, Louie!
"Nothing but harriers…" sounds funny.
No excuses, these pictures are marvelous.

Kind regards
Klaus

Outstanding "work" as usual, Louie! You certainly have some target-rich environments fairly near you! And your skills have been improving over the last couple of years. It appears you've learned how to get the best out of both sets of gear! Just proves....it's the photographer - not the gear!

Thanks Alex.
Great images.
Jay Maisel always said never have a plan when you go out shooting, just go out.
What a great series- luck favors the prepared.

Again, thanks Gary, I find that shooting with the 200-600 with the TC1.4 is no issue at all as long as there is reasonable good light. For what I do with my images I'm not sure I can tell any difference at all with or without the TC on the Sony lens. As to comparing shot between the Nikon setup and the Sony setup, again to me it's a toss up I can't see a difference. In summary, I think the difference between the two systems are so small, if at all, that I don't hesitate to shoot with either system. One noted exception, with the Nikon 600mm being an F4 gives you a better boken for those close in shots.
You're killing me! Another exceptional set!
Thanks Andreas, most appreciated.
