    A bit of a trial, almost a 100% crop of the moon shot with the SMC Pentax 135/f2.5 and GH2.

    A little bit of sharpening in Aperture and slight levels adjustment to bring out some contrast in the moon :smile:

    Out of curiosity, do you recall settings used ?

    1/250" @ f8 and 160iso (-1EV spot-metered)

    Shot in RAW with a tripod and 10" delay (lightweight carbon hiking legs, so not at all ideal for long lenses and massive crops...)

    Hi, I believe 135mm is a little too short for moon shots. I tried with a 2x teleconverter, but I believe it had not so much gain in resolving details. I'm thinking on buying a 300mm just for moon shots... LOL
    This is what I got with my Russian 135mm and 2x teleconverter:

    Yeah I agree... I used to use the ZD 50-200 on my E-3 and even that was a fair bit too short...
