The AF is the only disappointing aspect of this Camera it tends to 'hunt' a lot trying to figure what you want to focus on when zoomed out. Static subjects are not an issue - it eventually figures out what you you're looking to focus on. Moving subjects can be very tricky, I'm going test it in burst mode to see how fast it can capture a sequence.

It lacks a touchscreen so you cant pick your focus point by tapping on the screen.

Distance is always an issue while capturing birds in the wild. Tried to capture these habitat shots with my limited reach.
