Nice old box Wink


Hmm, well Rolling Eyes

That's quite a lens! Shocked

What is the overall length, and how much do you think it weighs? Visually it looks like it should have a tripod mount for extra support... but I guess it is not needed?

Nice... I would love to see a picture of it mounted on your Pen.

237mm long at infinity (255mm near focus) and not that heavy compared to it's size. It weights 390 gram. Very Happy

In comparison the 3 inch is 360 gram. Wink

Hail Nordentro!

You seem to be keeping this sub-forum going on your own. Well done!

I like the lens, but love the rendition provided, very natural. Many posters sometimes appropriately, boost colour and contrast to the max. Care to disclose your settings?

The weight isn't an issue as these longer lenses are mostly empty. But do you find it easy to take shots hand held? The balance is better than the 3 inch?

Pictures where taken in afternoon on a cloudy day and may explain lesser contrast and I like to keep my setting neutral Very Happy

Longer lens = better balance for sure! Because of the wider grip Very Happy

@Poilu
Thx a lot!
