Hand held, this lens really needs a tripod.

very good. appears unusually sharp and contrasty for a long mirror.
be interested to know how far away the pigeon was, and what PP you applied (including crop, if any)
EDIT: hmm just looked at the price of these little sweeties ... not surprised the quality's there!
Very nice! This was one of my favorite lenses and the reason I owned a Minolta body with my Pentax equipment. I had a 3rd party 300/5.6 with my G1 but it was not half as good.
There is a rumor that Panasonic is working to get the 500/8 mirror lens redesigned for m4/3 and possibly even this 250/5.6. If they do I will be first in line as this would be great for hiking.
Thank you all for the kind comments. There was very little PP on the photo: a bit of sharpening and curve adjusting in Camera Raw. No cropping. The pigeon was a fair distance; the lens magnifies 10X vs normal (25mm) lens.
I had this lens for decades. Originally I converted it to a Nikon mount. Now with a Nikon converter on the E-P2.
.. am I the only one to see Two pigeons here? :smile: or maybe that's another sort, kinda hard to tell!
Great image BTW, a keeper lens for sure!
no (you're not the only one)
I have to say that it is just a perfect shot and with that other bird in it is a plus....I saw it but had to read all the comments before I did...one comment...that sharp and hand held?? Just amazing!!
Great shot- love the other pigeon in the tube- I wonder if they nest in there?
Nice clarity with this lens.
I think its excellent saturated and sharp
I actually noticed the second pigeon (looks like a youngster) only after I got the photo on the computer monitor.
Awesome shot, superb IQ, Lighting and Composition
