    Brilliant lens. Most of these may not be of such high quality? The Tamrons are great. I love the mirror lenses, particularly when they can close focus.

    Lovely pics. I have an Ep-1 and am waiting for prices on the nex-3 to slump before getting it to use with all my c mount lenses.

    Excellent work! Thanks!

    I've just realized? The Clivias were the subject of both photos, weren't they?

    You clever fellow! The leds were probably 8000 C? What a revelation! UV light, you think?

    Thanks again!

    Nice shots! On the first picture, did you actually mount the camera on the ballhead? I know it is a CAT lens and it is not that heavy compared to a regular lens but still... No problem with the mount of that camera at all?

    Yes, camera was mounted on tripod - distance ~ 5 meters and only one 100W bulb. Mirror tele is an old one with KonicaAR mount I bought ~ 1985 for my KonicaAR and KonicaTC.
