I purposely brought the tripod and Q......wanted to see what the 170-500 lens would do with the Q.......I also shot some lizards & squirrel with the 170-500 before I spotted the osprey:

reh321, aiming the lens and finding the osprey was very tough- I couldn't locate it for awhile........I definitely must setup a red dot scope on my flash slot for quick acquisition............soon!

Yes there is a Minolta/Sony A- mount to Q adapter which is what I used. I don't have a fancy one just a cheap $22 one.

eeeeen-teresting....

did you need to paint the inside of that one also? i have a cheapie q-k adapter, but haven't really played with it, partly due to all the talk abt the glow and need to paint, and quite frankly, can't be bothered doing it...

but with pictures like yours.... it's niggling at me that perhaps i should get off my butt and something about it.

I did not paint the inside for anti-glare- but perhaps today I will do it........some of my captures did have a glow to it which I'm thinking might have been a result of internal adapter glare.

A quick check for the need to paint: roll up a piece of flat black (art?) paper and place in the adapter. Won't be perfect, but if results improve it's a good idea to break out the paint.

Pacerr thanks for the note- I was going to paint it flat black but matt black paper would probably be better...thanks.

Hit the cheapest cosmetic counter you can find and look for flat black acrylic fingernail polish. Add recommended thinner. Comes with its own small brush and an ounce will last a looong time for gear touch-ups. Pick up the clear polish while you're there - lots of uses for that too - tightens mount and hood joints, seals screws, water-proofs stuff, etc.

Pacerr- I'm actually a professional airbrush artist and have tons of paint.......don't really use enamels but urethanes and water based........but thanks for the info- always appreciated.

I'm a tad surprised to hear you say that. I recently bought two different inexpensive adapters, the Fotodiox PK-PQ and a Chinese (for Canon) FD-PQ; each already appears to have a good flat black interior ... but I don't have much experience with either (the temperature here has been just above 30 for the past week, and today it is heading to below 10, so there aren't many animate targets out, and not much interest on my part to go hunting for opportunities).

I just took a look at the adapter I have and it is indeed a bit shiny inside------I think a matte finish is needed as I did experience some glare-type glow in some shots.

what a great tip. i might do that myself and see what happens. i get thrown by the word 'matte' paint. i have acrylic black paint - do you think that would suffice? will check out the cosmetics counter next time i'm in there too.
