Word must be out about the new camera in town :D

I'm amazed over focus accuracy, these are some of the sharpest eyes I've seen in a while

A few first attempts in the garden. The 24-70 isn't really a macro lens, but it does a decent turn:

This is a long exposure with an ND. Just trying out LE tasks:

These are very inspirational. Are these with the 24-70 f4 or f2.8?

One thing about the Z bodies that I really don't see many talking about is just how well they work with TC's. I have a Z50 & Z6 and they are totally happy with TC's - even the 2x (which is not the case with my D500 & D850).

Z50, 500PF + 1.4x TC

The Baby Z can even handle a 2xTC on the 500PF (@ F11)

Z50, 500PF + 2xTC (1000mm, 1500mm "effective" FL)

Good point, Nick! I did not mention that the 1.4x & 2x TC's I have are VIII's. I do have the 1.7x VII and while I haven't used it all that much, it seems to be acceptable as well.

One day, we'll have native Z mount TC's & long lenses. Assuming we all get through this COVID nightmare.

Here's one (of the few I have) using a 1.7xTC.

I'd have been hard pressed to get this one with a DSLR using this lens / TC combo - not to say other couldn't, just my experience.
