Thanks for your warm welcome, Akira! The shot was with the Nikon D7100 (see text below picture), not the Df. Sorry for mentioning wrong camera.
One picture taken is far better than none!

What Massimo says, but your stunning image is not at all affected by such a harmless mistake!

Thanks, Mxbianco and Akira!
Sorry, I had forgotten to give you my congrats for the image, and only the "service info" had passed.

Reflex-Nikkor 500/8 N, the one with the longer focus throw, and focussing as close as 1.5m

Great shots, mxbianco! The Reflex-Nikkor you have used is the best performer of the Nikkor 500 reflexes.

Great shots, mxbianco! The Reflex-Nikkor you have used is the best performer of the Nikkor 500 reflexes.
It's great for handheld shots, very unconspicuous in crowded streets, and also for reaching subjects across a fence, but also for close-ups.
Defects: its own hood (HN-27) is only 2 cm deep and it's practically useless, but I found someone was tossing away on eBay a used hood(original, + original lenscap!)  from a Hasselblad's 500mm Tele-Tessar, which can be adapted with a 82-86 step-up ring. So now my hood is 12 cm and flare is a thing of the past.

I also have an older 500mm C-type, focusses only to 4m and has more vignetting, not bad for astrophotography, maybe with a DX sensor (vignetting becomes negligible)
In my lens arsenal I also have the Reflex-Nikkor 1000/11 AI, difficult to use handheld (only when sun is really shining!), and a pain to focus (on a tripod, with LiveView it's OK)

I named this one The ant's perspective, taken with 500/8 N and literally creeping in the high grass...

Another one from Burano, (Venezia)

Reflex-Nikkor 500mm/8 N

Maybe qualifies for the feet thread, too ...

A great picture which clearly shows the effect of out of focus blur from the Reflex-Nikkor 500!
