High ISO, lowlight, handheld, open aperture, and hand held aren't the standard ways to use medium format.
Cool shot. Non-standard is good.

Atmospherics in the form of haze, rain or pollution play a big part in long distance shooting. Not quite a 600/4 but one of my test shots with the 67 500/5.6 (which is big 'n heavy enough!) from my 645D is below. I make this about 440mm in FF terms, shot at f/11.

The tower blocks are 1.8KM from the camera, the wind farm is about 25KM away. Very rarely are the atmospherics this clear - only evident after I shot this image:

Update: Most days are much murkier, even when it's not raining (a rare occasion in Manchester, UK).
A magnified (to show pixels) image (from the original) of the wire dangling from the lower dish might illustrate how much distortion was present at that range. The wind towers show it even at the message magnification.

The first posted picture from the new to me Pentax 645Z. Haven't had a day off since it arrived, so I've been grabbing a few minutes with it when I can. This was taken on the way home from work. It was still lightly raining, so this was shot thru the open car window, hand held. Used the Pentax 6X7 165 f2.8 lens wide open with the FotoDiox adapter. High ISO, lowlight, handheld, open aperture, and hand held aren't the standard ways to use medium format. Oh well, I'm happy with this 1st attempt.

Thanks for looking,

Nice mixture of light and pattern. Tell me it was the camera so I can have hope for composition improvement.

Congratulations on your new MF venture

Wide open, I always get a purple ca from 6X7 165mm f2.8 on high contrast objects. I Hope it's only happens on the APSC sensor.

Thanks. I veer towards out of the ordinary at times. Didn't happen much with 120 film because of the low number of shots and cost. Interested to see if digital solves that.

Thanks. I'm often drawn to patterns and light. Sometimes composition works for me and often it falls flat.Shoot more.

Thank you. Haven't had a chance to try the 165 wide open on trees against the sky.

Thanks,

Is that thing on the left an actual crane, or an architectural doodad you can climb up.

It is an old harbour crane to keep some of the old atmosphere.

Thanks. I think the early generation of this tabular grain film feels more like cubic grain film than todays version of 100TMX.
