Default Manual f8 reflex lens.

This photo was made with my Russian LZOS mirror lens. This situation will really test one's ability to focus while panning. At a fixed f8 the depth of field is very critical. Right, Jelpee? The nose gear landing lights prove how good these lenses are at handling C.A.

very good focus for MF with a moving target toward you.

Holy smokes Streets...that does bring the image in close! I'd love to come out your way and do some plane spotting!

Indeed DoF is tough especially wide open on telephotos. I still end up with images where parts of the image turn out soft while other parts are tack sharp! I shoot at f/5.6 on my 70-200 with the 1.7 t/c in order to get some DoF and still be able to freeze motion.Nice job on managing manual focus while trying to shoot a subject that is moving towards you.

Default It's been a slow day.

I've been poking around my last session at DFW and have decided to add a couple of more shots; one of an MD80 and another of an ERJ. Same equipment was used.

You go pointing a big Russian device at an airplane and Homeland Security will have your butt behind bars on some deserted island. You must have friends in high places.
