Thank you, Paco and Hans!  It is always tricky to capture the rising sun.  It rises so fast!

I had that version of the 45/2.8P. It was so small that I lost it -- in my car -- within a few weeks. I complained to Nikon reps the mothership was to blame for making such tiny lenses which went AWOL by design so to speak. I wanted a new one but said no way I'm going to pay full price. They were so surprised that they knocked 50% off the price and handed the lens over. The new sample is with me still.

By the way, I never found the first copy again despite a thorough cleaning-up of the car when it was put up for sale :( Nice FM2 as well.

A good test for the ability of Z9 to focus on cat's eyes, true?

Yes,  that works perfect even with a very dark back lit eye.      The 24-70/2.8S is also pretty anti flare.
