500/8 long focus lens
3

It's a very wet day and I was looking through the 'junk drawers' and found this Paragon 500mm f/8. It's got an OM mount, so OM->EF EF->RF and it fits on my EOS RP

I tried it a few years ago on a 1Ds 3 and focus was always tricky (and dark), but the RP has focus peaking and is much easier to use.

It is long - this is probably not a telephoto design

A quick shot through a window shows that it works and that the birds, like myself, are not going out in this weather.

A junk* drawer (from when I had a go at making my own telecentric macro lens)

* as defined by the house management

I'll post some shots if it ever stops raining...
