Nice image.

It's good to see other people's experiments with the new body, it really does show promise.

Many thanks

Graham,
I started off with AF target mode = All targets - which worked well (with the green 'dancing boxes') whilst the sun was behind me. However I found it made the EVF display 'too busy' for my liking so I switched to using the 5 point Group. That said, I think the 'dancing boxes' would be excellent for more irregular subjects like wildlife.

Other settings used were:
Sequential Low Silent @ 10fps. (Menu Cog C1)

C-AF lock = 0
AF-Limiter = On,
with Distance setting = 40m ~ 999.9m (min/max)
and Priority Release = Off (i.e. prevents shutter release if not in focus)
AF Area Pointer = On2
(all the above on Menu Cog A1)

IS mode = S-IS AUTO
Sequential IS = IS Priority
Half Way Release with IS = On
(these are on Menu Cog C2)

(EVF) Frame Rate = High (Menu Cog D2)

I've got these settings assigned to the Custom Mode C1 so that a turn of the dial activates them. (C2 is similarly assigned to Pro-CapL and C3 to C-AF+Tr).
I want to do further tests with C-AF to see if IS = Off yields sharper images
and have a play with varying the C-AF Lock tracking sensitivity value, but this will wait until the sun climbs higher in the sky and we have a clear day with a westerly wind so that the planes land/take-off westwards.

Glad you liked the photos. If you look closely at the one with Jodrell Bank you can see that there are helices of water condensate coming from the tips of the prop blades.
