i dont have the chance to test it full open , and with the shutterspeed , its important if your lens/camera is steady , i had some picture`s , very sharp at 1/13 , also when you make a big crop , but i take it on a trypod

the picture`s that i take with the 500mm , i taken from inside my car , and normal i use a beanbag , but i forgot it , so i use my coat

thanks everyone for the comments , the next couple of weeks i dont have much time to photograph i must work the whole week , and the next four weekends i`m in london for sony , at the SWPA

greetings
gustav

Great photographes Gustav! I talked to you today, I've seen "this" 500 f/4 and I've tested it myself, hell yeah I like it. It's a perfect peace of engineering!

Gorgeous photos. Gorgeous lens. I can just imagine so many Dyxumers (Dyxumites? Dyxumians? What exactly are we called?) drooling over their keyboards for this lens as they read your post.

I think many of us, myself included, may buy a great lens which is actually beyond our ability to make full use of its capabilities. It is wonderful to see when that is not the case, where someone has the skill to meet the lens' capabilities. What a lens. More importantly, what a "king" of a photographer - can't wait to see more of your wonderful images with this or any other lens.

Because this may be about as close to one, most of us are going to get to it.

You lucky, lucky, lucky B!!!
Awsome photos and even better lens! Can you tell us here how much it set you back?
I have Some old minolta's Beercan, Big Beercan and 70-300SSM G SONY lens but I do need some extra reach even with a croped sensor on A77.
Can you tell me your opinion on 70-400SSM G as I think that would be more affordable one for me if you have any experience with that lens too?
It would be very interesting to know the pros & cons of each one and how they match up in terms of photos/quality/speed vs price.
Thank you
