Finally finished my long in the works article on the Mamiya 300mm f/2.8 APO lens and the Mamiya 500mm f/4.5 APO lens. I got to take both of these beauties with my to Costa Rica after recently acquiring a Mamiya 500mm f/4.5 APO lens (approximately three weeks before the trip). I shoot these lenses in all sorts of wild-life settings along with the Mamiya M645 2x N TC Teleconverter as well as extension tubes to great effect.
This article follows me apparently developing style of reviews focusing on discussions of images (both good and bad) driving the article forward and creating the narrative for me. I hope you enjoy this article and please give me feedback and feel free to ask questions here and leave me comments on my website!
