You'll cause a run on this lens, you do know that? ;-)
Let the games begin. Maybe it'll get back to the $13,000 US price tag that it commanded in the nineties. Probably not.
To me, it has the pleasant-tone, easy-contrast Mamiya 645 lens look. Plus all the sharpness one would wish for, considering there's a 1.4 converter slapped at the back.
Yeah. Not bad.
Do you find any, how do I explain this...any alteration to the flat focus plane, by having the
Canon + (adapter) + (teleconverter) + M'APO 300 all sandwiched together?
In that, does the weight of the camera begin to inflict a bit of a bending moment along the image axis, with so much interstitial, interlocking metal?
The Fotodiox Pro M645 to EOS adapter that I use is pretty firm. There's some rotational freedom possible due to the stacked connections, but it's pretty solid longitudinally. The 1DsIII is usefully lighter than the 1DII that I normally use with this setup. I've never noticed any 'out of plane' field curvature effects when shooting the 300 APO with TC's, but I normally don't shoot subjects with the 300 APO that would show this effect. Of course, I could fire it up with the Mirex T-S adapter to compensate for this, but I usually don't.
