This image isn't anything exciting but I share it because I captured it using a 1980's Tamron 200-500mm constant F5.6 beast with a lens adapter (Nikon mount).  Shot in my backyard, using a monopod (which wasn't good enough, I should have used a tripod).  This is the beast ->  http://www.adaptall-2.org/lenses/31A.html


Had lens zoomed in almost 100%, so a 35mm equivalent of approx 700mm.


This lens creates pretty poor images but is usable with the focus peeking and considerable processing afterwards.  What needs to be done afterwards on post is considerable contrast and blacks adjustments and major moire removal.  But once all that heavy lifting is done, images aren't half bad for a $75 purchase on Kijiji !!

One owl stealing the rat from another. Shot with Fuji X-E2 and Jupiter 37A (135mm f/3.5) Soviet MF lens, deep in the woods at 3am. Fuzziness is due to the fact that I've forgotten that my YN560-III flash has a maximum duration at the maximum power, and that duration is looong


…Yes, you can easily get a camera shake shooting action with the flash in a pitch black darkness.




Bonus shot: the winner. Hoot!
