    Yeah, it's got a big bug on it.

    All great shots but the 2 in flight shots are awesome. Can you tell us your settings?

    Sure:

    Manual Focus, Handheld, Focus Peaking MAX
    1/640
    Aperture: ~1.0 (still not sure how that works with the converter I bought)
    ISO: 400

    That's what the EXIF says, but I'm not convinced. :)

    Ok, your tamron is either a f/2.5 or 2.8, depending on if it's AF or MF. With a standard lens adapter (no contacts) the camera will say f/1.0 because that's the default value when it doesn't know.

    So, assuming you shot wide open it was either f/2.5 or 2.8. ;)

    That's what I figured but wasn't sure. Thanks! I'm new to the world of adapters.

    No need to be nervous. I haven't been on this forum very long, but you will find it is a great deal more civil than most - if not all - Internet forums.
