    Hi WT21,
    Did you use AF or MF?

    Prefocus AF. I think I had it on AF-C, but I prefocused on the feeder, recomposed, and just kept the shutter half-pressed until a bird came into view, then squeezed the shutter on burst mode (GX7). I think at that distance, there was enough DOF to get the birds in, but kill the background due to the FL.

    One thing I would say on the GX7 -- it doesn't have the greatest buffer. I first started with RAW, but it would fill the buffer and bog down. I had moved to jpg-only this time, which allowed me to keep ripping off shots through the whole sequence. I got other sequences, too, just not quite as dramatic.

    Thanks, that really was a nice sequence. I saw the 4th photo on another post and thought it was great.

    Nice sequence coming in like that and also some nice wing spreads.

    All the best.
