Great shots, Fud. My favorites are #1 in the first set and #4 in the second set.
Have you done a direct comparison between the 700 and 900?
Peter I have not done a direct comparison but last time I went to the WHF I used the A700 plus 70-400 (as opposed to the A900 plus 70-400 mainly this time) and my overall impression is that there is more detail in the fur and around the eyes with the 900. I also believe the colours straight out of the camera are better with the 900 (which was one of the main reasons I eventually bought one)
