We took a weekend trip to Acadia, as it is within the range of counties our state allows travel to without quarantine requirements on return. There were certainly plenty of people there, but in the park itself there was generally enough room to properly distance - provided you didn't go in the buildings. Here are some shots from our trip - all on my A7Rii with either the Sony 85mm f1.8, Samyang 35mm f2.8 or a Tokina 20-35 (F-mount, adapted and manual focus).

I've been very happy with it. It's a great walkabout lens for me. Focus is very fast and accurate, it's quite sharp, and has been highly reliable. I'm not gentle on it, either - it often sits on my camera hanging from my Peak Design clip on the shoulder strap of my pack while I am hiking, biking or skiing, in various kinds of weather and conditions. I think it's a tremendous value, especially since I got it used, but in perfect condition with the box, case and manuals for $100.

I've been hauled 30ft up a mast. I can cope with that as long as I trust the guy on the winch. But walking on that path... no. Won't drive on roads with nothing between me and a deep drop either. And definitely, my hands would not have been steady enough to take a photo!
