500mm on the Cheap

Only a Starling but was playing about with Q7 with Sigma 105 macro and ebay adaptor =483mm!

Handheld but think it's worth more experimenting with Tripod and more time to get my head around focus peaking

Slight Crop to straighten up the feeder

1/800 f2.8 iso800

Superb colour and sharpness. The Q cameras really shine with some good technique. Well done.

And me. Very nice.

Hmmm, so, if I got a Q7 and the right adaptor it would make my old Tamron 400mm eqivalent to... 483 / 105 x 400... 1840mm.

I don't think I'd try hand-holding that!

Some people call me 'strange'.
I prefer 'unconventional'.
But I'm willing to compromise and accept 'eccentric'.

That's about the size of it! there's some shots from a guy in the states doing the rounds here of a Bird of Prey eating a fish way way way up in a tree taken with a Q on a gimbal that are simply brilliant.

And thanks all, the lens certainly seems to keep its macro sharpness so it's worth trying some more. May even try it on a monopod at Thruxton this weekend if I can find a decent spot for photography that's not ten people deep hehe
