Extreme telephoto

So there was a good amount of wind tonight, but I decided to go try out my new stuff anyway.
Got this trick what makes my lenses all mad telephoto.

For (a moderate) example, here is a couple of shots at f2.8, 200mm (1120mm 35 equiv)

...and here are a couple at f4, 300mm (1680mm 35 equiv)
Spoiler

I wonder if someone from the City will go pick up those pylons...f4, 300mm (1680mm 35 equiv)
Spoiler


...because THIS can happen (shot today, unremarkable equipment)
Spoiler


Any other tele-philes out there?

And what trick would that be? These are cool shots and deliver pretty wild DOF compression at those focal lengths eh?. I'm going to be a big disappointment to you here as apart from a little digi compact, all I use is film and without image stabilisation or giant optics or tripod work it's a real pig getting decent tele shots. Add to that the fact that I cant afford long and fast like that - although it is now possible to get reasonably priced manual stuff as I guess you know with your f1.2 prime.

Longest I have is an f2.8 135 mm Nikkor which I really like to use. Also sometimes add a x2 teleconverter but then I'm into tripods and it's rarely a satisfactory outcome. Some of the nicest I get are with a f2.0 85 mm Nikkor and at these lengths I'm reasonably confident of remaining shake free.

Anyway, here's some examples from those lenses ...

One more, darn these long lengths are tough to work with.

500mm / 750mm equivalent

I really like extreme tele effects and well done for what I take to be a hand held at 750 mm equiv! For me that urban scene is way more interesting than it would have been at standard or wide lengths. I have a favourite in mind which I'll snap from a book and post here shortly

And so - Credit John Hedgecoe 1976.



Just love this picture . The field flattening places the boat seemingly much closer than it was although Hedgecoe doesn't say what the focal length actually was but does say it was 'long'.

I have a cheap 500 mm lens that is very soft, and a doubler to go with it.
It goes on a T-mount adapter so of course it's manual focus.
Does anyone know about T-mounts and telescopes, or spotter scopes.

The 18mm and 55mm are for this camera and the rest are for a full frame camera. And I"m too lazy and tired to work out the conversions.

And it wasn't until I was on the bridge that I figured out DOH the vibrations are going to interfere at the long lens shots. I had thought about going to bed early tonight and getting up before traffic was bad.
Maybe another weekend.
