    Disclaimer: I am no birder nor wild life shooter, some shots are heavily cropped, color saturation is somewhat lost due to web and photobucket. :tongue:

    Except for the cat shot (24-70), others are shot with 70-200 VR. I used auto-area AF + continuous-servo AF for the BIF shots (completely forgotten about the 51 points (3D-tracking) dynamic area AF. :Curved:) . AF works fine, I'm rather happy with this camera's performance so far :smile:.

    Pretty kitty :smile:

    It seems the camera handled BIF well. I am a not wildlife photographer either, but they look good to me.
  3. Looking Good!

    I really like the cat shot, Head is sharp and in focus and the body just melts into the frame. Oh, OH so nice!:smile:
    And at ISO 5000. Wow!

    Thanks, Auto ISO is one of my most used functions now. :Love:

    I can finally say this camera + lens combo tracks faster than my eyes now. :cool:
