Here are a couple of images from a birding outing yesterday. I was testing long glass and tried my V1 with the 300 f/4. This is handheld from inside my car. The distance was around 40-45 yards.

I also tried some with the 600 f/4 as well as the 600 f/4 + 2x teleconverter. This combination was soft on pretty much every image, so I need more work. The big problem was shutter speed since you are looking at f/8 wide open and the V1 struggles with noise at ISO 400-800. I was on a gimbal head with normal technique.
