Today was my first chance to put the 500mm f/5.6 Phase Fresnel (PF) lens through its paces. I alternated between the D850 and the Z 6 with the FTZ converter. I am incredibly impressed with its sharpness and bokeh. Focus is quick and silent on both cameras.

I laughed when I saw your photo. We put out orange halves to attract Western Tanagers but these Bushy-tailed Warblers eat most of the oranges.
