I like these a lot.
Nice bench, I'd like to have one like it.
Though, then I would need the scenery as well...

Man, I gotta have me some of that Summilux love.
Wonder how these perform on a Fuji X-E1?
Heh, no doubt I will personally find out this year.
Gotta have it.

I have found that stacking the 1.4x and 2x extenders is impractical at best: I cannot focus quickly and accurately, and the maximum aperture with the f/4 APO-Telyt plus both extenders is f/11, so shutter speeds get unacceptably slow for my subjects.

Yes, f/11 very dark

Actually closer to 750mm cause DMR is 1.33x crop (if Im correct).

I have Infrequently used my 2X Apo extender with my f6.8 560 Telyt lens which yields an f13.6. Fairly dark and quite long and must be used carefully. Not optimum certainly for fast moving subjects. Also, not quite what you asked. Image was acceptably sharp, but the Tug Boat in the image below was moving, there was wind and I had to push down on the whole assembly to try to keep things as vibration free as possible. The tug boat and the lighthouse were out a fair distance in Long Island Sound. Image has been printed to at least 16" X 24" Fuji Crystal Archive print.

Image information:

"Lighthouse Point" Photo of the Southwest Light, New Haven, CT as the Morgan Reinauer (large, high powered tug) passed by in spring of 1999; taken from Lighthouse Point in New Haven. The tug's tow lines are taught as it pulled a large barge. Image taken with Leica R8 and Leica f6.8 560mm Telyt lens and Leica 2X Apo Extender (effective 1120mm or 22X what see by eye) on Fujichrome Provia 100 film.

Aha, thanks Rich

Soon I'll do the Nikon modification of 1.4xAPO and maybe try 2x+1.4x+R180/2.8 or 2x+2x+V180/4 (extreme case)

A beautiful shot! I wonder will some of them fall for such a crowded taking off.

I have used my f2.8 280mm Apo Telyt lens with my 2X Apo extender and I believe it to be sharper or as sharp as the f5.6 560mm Telyt lens. This combination with the f4 280mm Apo Telyt should be at least as good. I have also used my f2.8 280mm Apo Telyt with both the 1.4X Apo Extender and the 2X Apo Extender which would yield an f8 lens. But, I never printed any of this combination and at this point I have no idea as to where those transparencies are.

In the end, that one wasn't available any more, and I bought the one at Igor's camera which two people sent links to It is on the way.

Bonus points for whoever can tell me how to get that white crud out of the grooves in the focusing ring rubber.


I got a whole slew of interesting suggestions for this, and decided to try them one at a time, in the order of mildest to harshest, but ultimately the simplest thing ended up working really well: warm water with mild soap. I suppose the cotton swap rubbing action cleanses and the glycerine lubricates. I used a liquid hand soap.

Congratulations! Yes, the liquid soap or shower gel - one of the best final processing with this rubber rings
