Francesco, Yes, I use it that way some. Mostly with my 19mm lens. And I'm not surprised that the shutter speed you need for sharp pictures his where you say. Subject movement and camera movement make it hard to hand hold such a combination. I'd rather have an R8 and the 80mm 1.4 than a lighter body. The weight helps steady. But tripod mounting makes a big difference in this range. I think the R8 has the best mirror up setup I've used. ========== Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO http://www.ponyexpress.net/~ewelch There's no such thing as nonexistence.
