Taken: Saturday, 14th March, 2020
Focal length: 150 mm
Shutter speed: 1/1600 sec
Aperture: F4
ISO: 3200
Notes: I have found it beneficial at times to adapt the Tamron 70-200 lens to gain increased focal range and speed. My manual focus shooting style affords me the luxury of adapting any lens with a mount that is M43 adaptable. I capture bif photos with lenses as wide as 50mm to approximately 400mm full frame equivalent.
