XE-1 with a Nikon 200-500mm lens
2

Just for fun on Sunday morning, I mounted my Nikon 200-500mm lens on my XE-1 and tried to take some pictures of the birds.  It was very challenging to manually focus at 500mm.  The focus peaking on the XE-1 is not very helpful unless you use the zoom feature, which makes it even harder to keep the subject in the viewfinder.  The following picture was the best I could do handheld.  It really makes you appreciate how difficult focusing is and how far the AF systems have come on any camera.  I also love experimenting with different adapted lenses on my Fuji camera.

Handheld at 500mm 1/2000, F5.6
