First shot with the 500/8 MR

In another thread, Jaapv brought the 500/8 MR lens to my attention.  I love the unique aspects of this lens—relatively inexpensive, small, light, and 500 mm!

Here's the first photo I took with it (handheld, on an a7riv so the IBIS could help).  Took more post-processing than usual, and the nearly-in-focus bokeh is... unique... to be sure.  But overall I'm pretty impressed with it.  Modern sensors and modern post-processing helps with the low light gathering (behaves like an f/9 or f/10 lens in terms of light that hits the sensor), and restores contrast, saturation, and sharpness.
