OK, permit me to place here an image not from the 500PF. My believe that is you love
the 500PF you will also love the 300PF.
With the 1.4.
And Matt the 300PF will also take a 2.0TC like horse and carriage.

I'm really curious as to how it performs in more complicated settings (branches, leaves, etc).

I got this little guy today at lunch & it made me think of this post.

I had a single focus point on the black to red transition on his face, from about 40ft. On the iMac, in LR or Topaz, you can clearly see feather strands lift by the leaf in from of him.

A sublimely good shot, very languid feel to the colors, and a nice 3D-ish look to it. Will keep the 300PF in mind, it's definitely on a short list of potentials ;)

Seems like a good test case for the typical settings I'm usually shooting in, thanks Phil!

Ya know... I've never really paid a whole lot of attention to macro shooting or photographing insects, but there might be something exciting about that too.

For both Matt & Dan. Cluttered environments and close-up small creatures. These were shot out my car window, about 12ft from a tree in the parking lot during lunch today.

All shot with D500, 500PF + 1.4x TC.

Edit: Kinda bummed... These look about 50% better on my screen (even the jpgs), before uploading. vmad

Sometimes I wonder how they fly with such a huge pollen load.

They must look sensational then because they look fantastic on my monitor.

Hmmm.. extension tubes sound like a fun idea!

I tried tubes a few years ago on my 120-300 with a 2.0tc and it took a lot of extension to make much difference at 600m. And when I had 12, 20 and 36mm tubes stacked there was a bit of play in the whole assembly.

Went back to try this with the Z6 today.

Going from D500 to Z6 & shooting moving stuff is painful.

Mine came in this morning. I was only able to take a few test shots, but I love it so far. Looking forward to next week when I can really do a good trial run.

The lens is almost made for Florida with our good light

Congrats, Daniel! What was your initial impression that first moment you pulled the 500pf out of the box?

You do a lot of shooting from a kayak? Any tips on getting close to water birds? :-) I recently got a fishing kayak for this express purpose, and the birds seem even more scared of me on the water versus being on land!
