All the towers in Rockwell Green. The top is Wellington Monument, bottom left is the Church, the middle is an old Weather Tower, and in the right is the Water Towe. The foggy background is the misty rain rolling a few miles behind Rockwell Green.

Same image a few minutes earlier and a bit farther away, before the misty rain started. (On a technical term I am not very please with this image because the trees in the background are not particularly detailed when zoomed in, aka intented for larger prints, and it's something the Sony a7 Mark IV would have handled better from more MegaPickle-Ricks and possibly sharper lens like Tamron 70-180mm f 2.8. I put this image on the short list for A3 and A2 prints as soon as I can get some paper to do that)

You seem to get quite a bit of mileage out of the lens, Irene ... and it certainly renders nicely, too.

As an aside, you can actually set the focal length in the camera menu - though to what avail I can't tell you (no I.B.I.S., no corrections). But it should give you EXIF data ...

I have set it up as 35mm and I entered f/ 1.4 but it only shows the 35mm, SS and ISO in the EXIF. No f-stop, which would be more interesting to know :)

I walked 3km in 30+ deg C heat today snapping away. Any lack of sharpness is down to pilot error, I think.
The lens itself does well! I just find the Z fc rather fiddly for magnifying the section under the focal point -
Fuji has a much quicker system by just pushing in the rear dial and it zooms (for fine tuning focus peaking)

So while this lens is fun to use, I would never trust it for an event or anything with fast moving objects

Ummm... I have edited 200 images; wondering whether I should start a thread for this specific lens and post some?
One thing I've noticed is that colours need additional help with saturation in post processing to 'pop'

I've set up the video record button to give my 100% magnification, eliminating the fiddliness of the original setup.

I didn't notice the "35mm" is there now - it wasn't in some earlier images IIRC. Anyhow, all good.

EDIT: I was probably wrong anyway: The focal lenght is shown as "0mm" at first in every case, later as "35mm" ... duh.

Mine's the "Ok" button which I've got used to, but the video record button probably makes more sense. Anyway (as you know), press that after focus peaking, get, in my case, 200% magnification, adjust the lens focus to make it even more pin point and the focused image becomes terrifyingly accurate.

I'll have to try to set it up to use the OK button (I want to keep the video button for video, which I do use)
And for what it's worth, I find the user manual utterly useless. The user manual for the Z50 is more detailed and I usually have a look there rather

I'd be interested to see how you get on once you've bedded down your favoured settings and are using them regularly. The focusing accuracy is supreme but I have this bee in my bonnet about how much of the final image is 'me' and how much of it is the computer behind the lens. It's as if it's too easy. (I realise this isn't an issue for most sane people btw).

Relax! don't overthink it... it's the result that matters
