It f16.3. You have to have a bright day, relatively high ISO. I shot these at 1/500 or 1/1000 of a second at iso 800 or iso 1600. The F16.3 is fixed. The lens only cost $200.

Seriously... $200 for an f/16.3? That's insane. You can get f/8 mirror all day long on Fleabay for half that!

Hell, I sold my Tokina 500/8 mirror for $150.

Interesting shots Don. I've had the Nikon 500/8 lens for a long time and don't use it frequently but like it's unique look. The rendering of colors and oof backgrounds (not necessarily the donuts) is beautiful. I too like the dog shot best.
