mostly for reference to what this lens can do - wish I only knew what the nominal cruising flight level for an 747 above my home is,
photo shot westwards, upwards at about an 45 degrees angle, during sunset, plane heading NW
uncropped at 300mm, RAW a bit sharpened and edited and rendered into JPEG by the iPadOS13 native Photos app.
oh, also note, very snappy small rectangle AF-S on the E-M10ii!

Probably about 35,000 feet (~10,600 meters) + or - as directed by ATC.
Approx 49,500 distance, at 45 degrees elevation.

Just checked a flight from London to Athens.
Cruising altitude was about 30,000 ft.
So the 45 degree diagonal is about 42,500 ft. ~13,000 meters.
hmm, it may be less since, in a straight line, I am about 200kms from the Athens Int. airport and if it took off from there it may has not reached the first step of the flight level “ladder” yet

I was thinking about that.

Take a look at this site.

You can pick a flight and figure its altitude based on the flight log.
It looks like 10-20 minutes from take off to 30,000 ft. Depending on route and how ATC directs them.

looks like a KLM plane to me and it seems that the only flight from AIA on the righ time is on a 737, so this 747 may have already reached the cruising altitude as it passes through the greek airspace

to the rest of the members, sorry for slipping too much into this :oops: - wanted to become a commercial pilot as a teen:th_salute:

Picked up a used example of this lens the other day, and for a price that was a little too tempting. The lens isn't in its first flush of youth, but optically is perfect. For something so light, relatively small and inexpensive, it's pretty good I think.

This one is S.O.O.C. I have done nothing to it. You can see the focus is on the little guy (or gal) on the right.

another example of the abilities of the lens:

the other dusk it seems I nailed focus on the moon while shooting from inside a car, using the window frame as a stand, no tripod:

SOC RAW rendered to jpeg by the iPadOS13 native Photos app (“Night Shift” and ””True Tone” off of course):

(no idea why the SOC frame carries no EXIF while the edited one does, duh!)

and edited a bit on the same platform:

Sorry about the chopped off feet. There were there before I straightened the image, sometimes in the heat of the action I forget to make sure I am level.
hey, this is art! your frame can be as crooked as you like! sometimes a not square frame can be much more interesting!

now, properly posting a not rectangular photo on the forum may take some work to have the frame itself framed upon a white or dark square to have a publishable forum photo, right?
