CV40.

Like a true 'character' lens, there's some imperfections in the rendering....as in the really hard OOF bokeh balls, OOF CA, and nervous rendering of distant OOF details.

I love the 'classical' rendering of this lens for documentary photos as that's more artistic in nature...for more critical type photos I think technically better lenses with a cleaner, more modern rendering like the GM lenses are or the 35 1.4ZA are better suited.

When I see an image like this I really don't notice or care about the 'flaws'. Just a killer shot and she is working the photographer!
Now about that shepherd's hook being as big as she is! I hope it wasn't heavy.

Probably my search skills at B&H but I haven't seen anything for Sony. I would love not to use the Lenscoat version on the 200-600 though without the extending barrel it might not be bad.

I'd like other choices than Lenscoat too, but they do work and serve the purpose.
Non extending 200600 will be even better for the Lenscoat.

Thanks Robert!

Yes it's not really a big deal in the grand scheme of things.

The shepherd's hook is plastic hah so she was fine.

I have been trying to get a shot of one of these Black Skimmers here at the beach for three years...the first two years I never saw one...then we started to see them, but never when I had my camera...then last year I had my camera and they only showed up when I was not shooting...and that has been the theme this year and then I finally caught one...I was taking pictures of my daughter and as I lowered the camera they flew by, I put the camera up and the a9 caught them...first frame...then locked on, but I liked this frame the most of the set...would have preferred to shoot them head on, but I will take what I can get...big time crop, 2200 pixels left over of the original 6000 from the a9.

Speaking of that lens Randall, it's still trucking along.

So everyone knows what a Drone Fly is. These little guys are in the backyard.
I discovered I can never see them (super super small) until I sit down (I carry a pad when
I got out) and just start looking around. Sooner, but more usually later one will catch my eye.
Then I hope their body position and light are OK.

I think I'll post a pic of something close to one of these little guys to give an idea of just
small they are. Have to work on that.

Managed to find 10 mins there to check my 16-35 GM. Looks to be well centred at 16mm and its pretty good at 35 (one corner ever so slightly but barely noticeable). Im happy with that. Just need to check it on a few normal shots at f/5.6 and f/8 to be sure its totally fine. The previous copy of this lens I got was an absolute disaster and wouldnt give sharp images at f/8!
