I ordered the Fuji XF 23 1.4 on the last day of the sale about a month ago and am still waiting for its arrival as it is backordered. I am getting a little impatient and hope it is worth the wait.

I picked up a nice, mint Nikkor 105mm f2.5 AIS yesterday... too bad I don't have a Nikon camera (other than film) to use it on.

It's never quite the same thing, though...

Rokinon 14mm for 5DIII.

Sent two back for decentering. I think the one arrived yesterday is spot on. Need to get outside and shoot a brick wall to be sure, but shooting my living room blinds last night from 0.7 meters seems to have given me good results. Not sure I trust them though at such short range - or should I say rather that might not longer range (2m to infinity) be more relevant to general shooting?

btw, there's a great adobe lens profile out there (originally written for the 1DX, I think) that completely fixes the mustache distortion without cropping the image at all.

Two:
MEYER-OPTIK GÖRLITZ TRIOPLAN 100mm f2.8
MEYER-OPTIK GÖRLITZ ORESTOR 135mm f2.8

both arriving from Germany next week

Ps: just noticed that one pic has an unintended "plug" - is just that both lenses still travelling, so don't have any samples or my own pictures of them

"Prolonged" version of Mamiya RZ67 APO 500mm with Sigma APO teleconverter 1,4X on SD1M.Note that this teleconverter is very restricted for a certain number of Sigma APO lenses.This combo goes very well, very sharp, no CA adding (not like it with Canon 400L).The "sight" becomes focus lever.

That usually is a matter of whether any protrusions from the back of the lens obstruct the flange, rather for than any optical reason.

May I suggest a Leitax mount is the most appropriate for this beauty?
