    Yes. It always seemed to come in to play with macro with narrow depth of field.
    Seldom with wildlife because the battle is always for more light so rarely do I get over f/8.

    This July I didn't even take my camera or lens. First time in the last 10 years.

    Joel,
    With two days I would do the lower loop one day and the upper the second.
    There is much to see without to much walking.

    For limited walking I would take 14 in to the park, when you hit...

    Joel's PP definitely increased the desirability. Brightening the reflections brings it up dramatically.
    Although Joels' jpg was to small to really get a good grasp overall effect.

    Honest appraisal is I am not a fan. To much dark space, bird is there but doesn't really stand out. The bird feels like it is part of the background not the subject.
    You are right it is to dark.

    So to simplify this, from the sensors point of view it is like looking through a magnifying glass to get a greater fov?
    The adapter is compressing the full image to fit on the sensor. (more or less...

    It has one glaring flaw and it has nothing to do with the spec sheet.
    $479 adapter to adapt to an M is overpriced, that is as much or more than the body you are attaching it to.

    From the posts so far is it a conclusion that raising the shadows of the 5D IV 4-5 stops is not acceptable, but 3 might be.

    Sounds familiar to the old DR discussions. Sony is obviously better.

    Most of the discussion is centered around camera bodies. Really that may only be half of the equation in the...

    Larger pixel = Less Noise due to the S/N ratio.
    Smaller more efficient structure would allow for better handling but you end up with an unfavorable S/N ratio to deal with as pixels get smaller.
