Don't use this one a lot, but here it's shown on my G80.

Nikkor 50mm f1.2 with viltrox ef-m2 focal reducer. This focal reducer still has the blackout issue so the contacts have to be taped when using manual lenses.

Planning to expand my legacy lenses this year with interesting and unique rendering legacy lenses (the likes of Fujinon 55mm f 2.2, Helios 44M, Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Orestegor 135mm f 2.8)

These are my two favorites. The SMC Takumar 50/1.4.

And the Helios 44-2-58mm/2.0. Russian lens that yields (sometimes) crazed, swirly, smeared backgrounds.

This was taken with the Helios. It looks like I ran it through a retouch program and blurred out the background. This is from the RAW run through a generic Lightroom preset to punch up the reds.

That's Ridiculous!

  3. Olympus OM Teleconverter 2X-A: 1,697mm @ ƒ/18.4

  5. Vivitar 2X Macro Focusing Teleconverter, shown fully extended: 6,788mm @ ƒ/74
  6. Vivitar MC Tele Converter 3X: 20,365mm @ ƒ/221

As you can imagine, ƒ/883 allows about as much light through as a lens cap.

I poured 9,600 joules (about what you'd get from 96 speed lights) from two Speedotron packs and five heads, one of them a 2,400 joule fresnel spot, and it still looked like a lens cap.

But then I put it on my Celestron az-al tracking motor, pointed it at the moon, and did a Live Composite photo, all night long, and managed to get this (scroll down):

That’s incredible!
Great shot even though it’s a little grainy.
I knew we weren’t alone....

For the small world closer to home, this incident-light set-up. A tandem consisting of a Nikon LU Plan Fluor 10x microscope objective and a 5/200mm lens of the old OM-System, provides 10x in-camera-magnification. The XYZ-translation stage is indispensable for accurate positioning of an object 1x1,5mm in size. Infinity-corrected microscope objectives of other magnifications may be used.
The benefit of such a set-up over a microscope stand is the easier access for a lighting system, here a home-made ring-light made up from a 12cm led-strip.

Superb sleeper lens, I use mine often. I only wish it would have more blades (and curved) for the aperture diaphragm to avoid those pesky pentagons in the speckled highlights
Well it was thanks to seeing your superb “kookaburra sitting on a fence post” picture that made me seek out and buy one. :)

Where did you get the XYZ stage? Do they have any more? :)

I paid too much for a surplus XY linear micro-stepper, and then discovered that the stepper coils were burned out. I had been planning to connect it up with a joystick and an Arduino for precise positioning.

Now I'm thinking the old-school approach may be best…
