    Vivitar 600mm f8 Solid Catadioptric. Olympus EPL1 and Gitzo Studex tripod. An impressive device, but optically not quite up to par - at least for my example. 600mm_Vivitar_solid_cat_066_-_Copy.JPG

    Still somewhat disappointing. Hand held for this one - helps build arm strength

    Yeah a shame it doesn't seem particularly sharp or contrasty. And busy/crazy out of focus area rendering.

    Got any pictures handy of it mounted on your camera?
