"RE: Focus, Sharpness and Resolution"

You need to get a LOT closer for good wildlife images. Physically closer and ultimately a longer lens.

The Canon SX40HS has a zoom equivalent of 24-840mm ! Sounds impressive and indeed it is but it can't do many things a DSLR can so it's a bit of an apples and oranges comparison even if it looks pretty sweet!

Keep visiting the beaches and estuaries where the eagles are and the opportunities will present themselves. It was years before I finally got my first really good eagle image and there's a list of other wildlife I'm still waiting for many years on.

The D5100 auto-focus is a little frustrating to use with the harsh little red light indicator in the viewfinder. I'm never sure if I'm on target or not, compared to higher end bodies. But the D5100 takes great pics so persistence and patience will pay off

Have fun

Philip
