next Friday as well as for Marnie.

extensive redesign. Not necessarily bad, just means the old version tells us 

The new version has to be set greater than 210mm for the TC to be able to be 
attached.  Indeed the old version went to 1:4 natively and the new 1:2.The 
previous version had 20 elements in 13 groups but can not find any data on 
construction or MTF on the new version.  They curiously do not claim a massive 
redesign and one wonders if they just changed the helicoid for closer focus and 
modified the mechanics so the TC could be attached. That seems like the heights 
of laziness, so more likely expect some changes. Is it a MZ 100-400 killer???

Stunner shot.  I should use Procapture mode more
