    I normally shoot this wide open, stopping down a bit does sharpen it up quite a lot.

    Are all these adapted lenses manual focus? Just amazing the sharpness of them all.

    Yes, all manual focus, the combination of IBIS and the ability to get manual focus zoom at the flick of a switch on a subject makes a lot of difference to the quality of photo's you can get out of the old lenses. I am of an age that grew up using exclusively manual focus. (there was no AF). I do not use the focus peaking on the A6500, or my Fuji for that matter, in my opinion it is just not accurate enough.
