    yeah… no

  • Want to take portraits where just a single iris is (partially) in focus? Here you go.

    it is useless on the tiny plastic mount Sony Fe cameras, if you want to use this sort of a huge lens, you need a strong camera with strong mount.

      when you shoot with a lens this size and weight you generally either:
      1 – have on a tripod using the lens tripod foot
      or
      2- hand held take most of the weight with your off hand holding the lens (usually by the tripod foot)

      I’ve shot my 300 2.8 and a rented 600 5.6 on EOS 350 (my spare body at the time) and no one could call out the early xxxD’s (AKA Rebel AKA Kiss) for having particularly rigid bodies

    I have yet to see a photo taken with the damn thing.

    • there are few sample photos in my original link I posted few days ago

  • Jeffry De Meyer

    Would have so gotten it if it was say +-$1000

    Nothing Like a Nice Pocket Lens. Are you Happy to See Me? Or is that a Mitakon 135mm in your pocket?

    I can get past the $3000 price tag, but only 100 will be made? Wouldn’t it be easier to have them made to order for the customer? Are there constraints with mass production or something?

    • Jeffry De Meyer

      Keeping them “exclusive” to be able to charge what they do, like Leica

  • Spy Black

    It was surprisingly light for it’s size. When I asked about the low quality production, the fellow at the booth said it had to do with glass yield. When I asked about eventually making another set of lenses, either he didn’t understand what I was saying, or he simply didn’t know how to answer.
