Particularly like #1 , Aguinaldo ! Aperture / shutter settings ? Seems fast enough to stop the surf, closed down enough for reasonable DoF (guess 1/1000 f8 ?). Really well backlit for the clothes ..  I didn't know of this lens, but a quick check shows it dates from 1975, MF only, but weight is only 2.8 Kg .. how easy is the focus ?

 

The 500 PF seems to be intermittently available now, how are you getting on with that ?

 

cheers, Maurice

Thank you for the feedback Maurice.

On #1, f/8, 1/800s and ISO 360.

Focusing is quite difficult and I had to use a monopod.

I bought my 500mm Pf in December 2019 and I'm loving it. 

Sometimes I like to use other lenses of my collection. I love them all too and they need some action even to prevent mold and drying of the grease.

Will the Z cameras help with the focus peaking in that regard? 

Sure.

Peaking highlights is a great feature.

The 58mm f/0.95 Noct has a razor thin dof and is almost impossible to focus without the ph.

For these pictures I was using the D5.

Using PCE (tilt/shift) lenses on Z bodies is essentially a breeze with focus peaking too, so I'll be using my 85 2.8 a lot more now, I think !
