Trying to find a higher perspective point in Las Vegas without paying for a suite with view or gettting hassled by security is more difficult than one might think...

A couple of shots taken with the Z at 400mm using the A 200 and 2 x Teleconverter. Taken 40 minutes apart and of Ben Cruachan at the head of Loch Awe. First time I have tried this combination.

Looks great! Do they hold up under close inspection?

I tried this combo only once and my results didn't look nearly as sharp. Now I'm starting to wonder if my mushy details were from heat rising from the ground or something (it was in the desert). My A 200 is pretty sharp on its own.

The files are not absolutely tack sharp at 100% but the trees are nearly two miles away and the mountain 17 miles away. Although all the shots I took (12 in total) were set up identically there is some significant variation in sharpness ranging from unusable to printable to moderate proportions. I wouldn't like to print big with close viewing distances with any of them, but given the combo is not generally thought to be good I thought the good files were OK and could be of some use.

I don't think it was variation in atmospheric conditions that played a role in the variance. More likely vibration from wind, shutter operation, or both.

Wild Atlantic Way in Co. Mayo, Ireland.
645Z with 300mm M* Pentax 6x7 lens + Photodiox adapter to 645Z - 30sec exposure at F11 in a stiff breeze on an exposed headland, with polariser and Little Stopper!
I hope the clarity and detail comes out in this 66.7% jpeg crop from the original image.....it prints out in astonishing detail on a 24" x16" print.

Nice ones with the 400mm, especially the B&W....
My shot of the rocks in Ireland was 980kb when uploading (site limit of 1MB per jpeg according to the list there, so I used that limit in PS) , but after uploading shows as a 236kb file (in the image management display) , which suggests that image quality is degraded?...hence my original comment about clarity and detail......however yours still look 'crisp'....any suggestions to keep them looking good at reduced jpeg sizes? The original TIFF files are stellar!

After saving the original image, I resize using PS to 3048px and add another sharpening layer at 50% and then reduce size again to 2048 then save as a copy.jpg. I upload to Flickr and just use that to host the image.
