    What makes this slightly more than mildly interesting is that I shot it with my X-T1 and an Olympus OM-mount 400mm Tokina tele lens, handheld at about 16 feet. I don't know about you but I'm impressed, given that this is an effective focal length of 600mm...

    Impressed by the IQ or that a man at your advanced age could handhold a shot with such a long lens :eek:




    Of course, I'm just giving you a hard time, Bill. Lovely kitty shot.

    Cheek! ;) this lens is my answer to the current lack of reach in the Fuji system - I have it for sports (mostly cricket) and wildlife (wilder than this hairy poseur) but I am impressed by how usable it is. I could have gone for a catadiopteric (mirror) lens but strangely find them harder to hand-hold at the same focal length as an equivalent telephoto lens.

    Sweet kitty. Ive been using the Zuiko 300mm f4 from the OM system for a while now on my E-M5 for birds, and am very pleased with the results. When I have $600, it won't be going for a slow telephoto zoom.

    I used a number of Tokina zooms on my OM-1 back in the day and always liked them. The 80-200 (forget the aperture) was a lovely lens.

    I've really got to get an MD mount adaptor for the XT and start playing around with my old rokkor glass.
