Chow Time with the Q!

Finally a nice day with some time to try out the Q with a couple of my longer lenses, the DA*50-135 and the DA55-300 from the comfort of my backyard deck.  Shot using a Fotodiox adapter with manual aperture adjustment ring and V5-LCD hoodloop magnifier in combination with focus peaking.  Used tripod and RF shutter release.  Stopped down somewhat, not sure how much.

I'm "okay" with the results, lacking the detail I was hoping for, I believe mostly because of the higher ISOs.  Need to try again on a brighter day/hour and see if detail is any better.

Any suggestions/comments welcome.

The following shot is with the 50-135 at or close to 135 mm.

Chow Time!

Caution!  I hear angry birds.

Birds are gone.  Back to dinner.
