How's your new A1? Is it better for wildlife than A9M2 or A7R4?

Hi Lukasz. A1 is amazing! Much better then Aiv or A9ii. It is so good, I am planning on selling both of me Aiv and A9ii. I love the Aiv for landscape and macro. And the A9 I bought it to only use with 200-600 for wildlife ( Aiv is terrible with that lens).
A1 does it all!
This photo is not very clear, I was shooting through my kitchen window. But the a1 has awesome resolution, super fast autofocus and love love love the new bird eye focus

I'm surprised A7R4 is terrible with 200-600. I've seen Danijel Turnšek (https://fstoppers.com/profile/230839) shooting beautiful photos with this combo.

A lot of people seem to have a problem with it. For example for a bird on a branch with the Aiv I need to have shutter speed at at least 1200 to get a sharp photo. For birds in flight have not been able to successfully get a sharp one yet. Same lens on A1or A9ii I handheld at 200 or 250 all the time and birds in flight at 1200 seems to be perfect.
I talked with Mark Smith ( a wonderful wildlife photographer on you tube) and he said he doesn’t like that lens on the Aiv but recommended on A9. That’s when I purchased the A9ii.

That's very interesting. I've tested this lens with A6600 :), but haven't got chance to get any decent photos, cause it was rental for 2 days. I wonder if this is related to specific copy of the lens or just this lens in general. I've been considering this lens and A7RIV in the future, but now I'll hold my horses. Thx.
