I never could have gotten this photo without the long reach and stabilization that is in the Lumix G9 and the Leica 100-400mm f4.0-6.3 lens. Fully extended at the 400mm end of the lens which is the 35mm full frame equivalent of 800mm . Check out the specs...and this was handheld. 1/50th sec f6.3 ISO 200
