    yeah I was afraid of that.

    I will have to do some experimentation. The problem with using it in Av was that when I tried it, the shutter was set to like 1/150 or something gay and not usable. I was too worried about missing a shot to mess with it, but I'll play around and see what turns up.

    ISO 12,800! Raise your hand if you remember when 400 speed film was "high-speed"!

    I usually use manual, but Tv works well with birds in most situations because DOF is so limited with a long lens anyway. The combination of Tv and auto-ISO might just do the trick.

    I guess it's not too bad considering 12,800 ISO, but I'm wondering why you didn't just open the lens up 2 stops and drop the shutter speed slightly, you could have got the same shot at 1600 ISO.
