    As you know son, things are cheap for a reason.

    That said, I'd like to see some 'real' results with this lens. So, might I suggest you buy one, test it and if it's any good...I'll get one too

    I've seen some real world tests by a photographer, and while he has more to test, his first thoughts are not oo bad, but there is a lot of light needed to illuminate subjects.

    OMG, like a lamb to the slaughter, I've just paid for one.

    Looks like a fascinating piece of glass, which will be hard to use, but interesting!

    Can't wait to see your results Paul. A very intriguing piece of kit. As much as it's going to be a little more difficult to light subjects, I can't imagine it being any more difficult than an MPE. Those are a bitch
