.....The ring surrounding this actually comes off, but it was hella stiff, and I had to resort to using the two ring-removal tools with a pair of thick leather gloves and a surface I could push down on for leverage. Finally I got it off, and the last two lenses came out.

I have some of these macro teleconverters. I take the teleconverter lenses away, and use this for different lenses, for example as wideangle macro lens with a Carl Zeiss Jena 35mm f/2.8 or for a projection lens as helicoid.
And on every single of these macro converters the inner lens tube is extremely hard to screw out :-/

Do you have any tricks for making it easier?

Pure force at the moment.
I use a car-oil-filter tool (with a rubber band and grip) to get more power. And leather working gloves in case I slip off.

A store near my workplace had a Mamiya 645 1000S with a 80/2.8C and A 120 macro for 199. I thought about it for a minute then stopped thinking and bought it

It's the tilt shift, but the pic above is a straight shot that's been cropped in post

I think I saw that kit, but passed on. If it had 80/1.9 I would have taken - I have the 80/2.8. I am glad you are using the lens already!
I have just picked up 2 polaroids (95 and 900). Been thinking of doing the conversion to 4x5 one day. With my speed it will be after my retirement in 30 years!

I have a Leica f4 80-200mm Vario Elmar on its way. I hope to have it later this week.

Just picked up:
28/2.8 Elmarit II M 1976 according to
http://www.l-camera-forum.com/leica-wiki.en/index.php/28mm_f/2.8_Elmarit_II
So far it's sharp with minimal color shift and no smearing(looking on camera).
Included with the lens is the funky hood, and a leather Olympus bag(and a bag for the Topcor below too)

And a Topcor R 13.5cm f3.5 preset(12 blade), it looked sharp, but may need a re-grease. Edit: I have cleaned and relubed the lens, she will be fun to use, although a bit on the long side for me.

A weekend rental (gave my girlfriend a fashion shoot with a professional make-up artist for her birthday), not a purchase, but I thought you guys might enjoy this picture anyway.

Sony A99 + Sony-Zeiss 135mm f/1.8

Great idea for a present Lee. But... this has to be said: it looks like 4 of those top 6 buttons are 3-year old girl size! A77 or A99?

A99.

Actually I agree, I couldn't push those buttons very well. Luckily they're ones you don't need often (well, maybe the backlight).

That lens, by the way, is unbelievable. Even wide open it's too sharp for portraits (even for my girlfriend who's only 22)! I'm going to have to soften in post.

Nice shot. I wish that lens would exist for Nikon.
