for those of you who may be interested, I have had a few more words with Jin at RJ Camera that are quite promising.
I know this won't be of great interest to everyone here, but it certainly is to me. I loved my TS-E 90mm lens for extending depth of field beyond using stop down methods ..."yeah... but probably end of next month :-)
the price will be in 3 digit :-),
the low part of $100+ range..."
it would be nice to use a 35mm or 50mm lens in the same way at f5.6 on my G1
If he can get me one before Christmas I'll be really keen to review it ... Christmas is suddenly looking good :-)
