50FL

Probably this will be my best handheld birding gear for a while

I was taking several test shots.  Thanks for the deeper focus depth. The manual focusing becomes much easier to do. Now I don’t feel I need to use close-up mode in EVF with monopod for focusing any more. Easier to focus at F8 and to carry it at 50mm aperture.  This is 400mm F8. It should be most practical setup at specs and pricing points. If you want to play around controlling the depth of the field, larger(faster) aperture with the iris controller should be fun. Although I can’t go the birding field this weekend, I will try to use during the birding show instead.
