B+W 093, which is a 830nm filter. I find 800 ISO and f8 tends to give the best results for me. With apologies for posting a Q2 image here, this is what I get with a normal Q2. I’d be interested in how it worked on a Q2M.

 

The Q2M lens has a huge hot spot in the center. It's unusable for IR on the monochrome sensor.

Do you have a sample image or any idea of the reason?

I'll see if I have an example saved – might have tossed them. But for the Q2M, imagine an image that looks blown out and soft in the center with extremely heavy vignetting all around the edges.

Interesting linked article. I was already thinking on the lines of a coating somewhere. As a sheer guess perhaps the Q2M's development into more low light sensitivity (over the Q and Q2) was with an internal barrel coating... something largely invisible to a user but whose effect comes out in the wash so-to-speak when attempting to use an invisible-to-us light?

From this morning's walk, Q2M in hand:

Where ancient religions collide . . . a 14th century Norman church inside a Neolithic Henge monument that was constructed around 2500 BC.  Said to be the most haunted place in England although all peace and quiet on a bright summer's afternoon.

Very nice. Is this Knowlton?

Did you make a focusing adjustment for this and, if so, what was it? Thanks.

It's hard to tell who's having the most fun here, you or the Bouviers.

No focusing adjustment.

At f8 and focused (manually, before putting the filter on) on the branches of the trees on the left, I reckoned I’d get away without needing to. Anything smaller the f8 might need adjustment though. I’ll need to experiment.

Love the use of ‘photoshop’ on this image 😀

some four leaf clovers - from a wild clump discovered earlier this morning in a field just outside our village - (St Buryan, Cornwall) - Q2M - ISO6400 - 1-2500 sec - f8


My wife just 'sees' these out amongst all of the grass, whereas I just see a load of grassy clover. And *I* think I'm the details-conscious one 😎 
She gave a bunch of others to her sister whose dog they were walking. I put the clovers in an egg cup, on a piece of black card out on the
window sill and added a bit of water (plucked four leaf clovers tend to shrivel up dreckly particularly in this frying radiation sunshine).
