    This is the lens used by James Stewart in Rear Window], though on an Exakta instead of an Olympus E PL1. I can't really hand hold it Kilfitt_400_5_6_Fern_Kilar_53_.JPG while standing - mostly used a beanbag on the roof of my car.

    Getting small birds in motion with natural light is a real challenge, but fun. I'll post a picture of the camera/lens combo sometime soon Kilfitt_400_5_6_Fern_Kilar_1_.JPG

    more info

    The lens comes in a fitted case, and a glass slide with the resolution test results for each individual unit is included in a padded slot. Mine has a Nikon adapter made by Novoflex but it still needed a short extension tube to work.

    Karis/Kilfitt

    the deerhound is always a good test subject, but the foreshortening of a 400mm lens doesn't flatter her from this angle! Kilfitt_400_5_6_Fern_Kilar_12_.JPG
