Yeah, I think I know what you mean. I cleaned a lens for a friend not too long ago (The Sigma AF 24mm f/2.8, Nikon mount) and there was a doublet with a lens on top and a loooong straight that was as you say "doing nothing" - just shifting a node. When I saw that I wondered why they didn't just make the lens more of a pancake - but then again maybe this element is different lengths in the different mounts to compensate for the different flange depths. <shrug>



Some on-line images of the lens being discussed.



Not a very sharp lens BTW... Rather mediocre all around...

Hmmm, is that someone's shadow in the middle of a beautiful waterfall?

This needs an injection of photos. 3 from the MD Rokkor 28/2 55mm filter on a 5d. Probably between f5.6 and f8. Standard processing and less/no saturation pumping outside of my regular raw defaults.

Thanks all! We had a couple of super spectacular days where the air was really dry, which made for even better than normal shooting conditions. Glad you enjoyed them.

i think i will definitely like this lens, though i'm a bit concerned - the rear element has a lot of cleaning marks.

thanks! i started doing those types of shots just to get a feel for new lenses bokeh (what is the plural of bokeh?), but i really like how they work out with my rokkor 50/1.4 and 28/2. i'm slowly building a portfolio of random weed abstracts covering the entire color palette.
