NEX-7, 800mm and moon test
Dec 20, 2012

So the 800mm finally arrived, hmmmm a rather large beast and one I won't be hand holding for BIF's, not going to happen

Took it out today for bird shots, nothing to write home about. It did show me what this lens will be used for though. Low tide and birds in hard to reach places. That's obvious and still the 500mm for in flight shots and high tide.

Anyway a shot of the moon tonight and only about half a moon, but it gave me a good idea of the cropping with the NEX-7's sensor with the 800mm.

NEX-7, Canon FD 800mm, F/5.6L, heavy tripod and Gimbal head

Original full frame

Cropped and tweaked

All the best folks and just a simple test.
