Serious piece of glass . At first glance the price looks kinda steep too, but then a 300mm 1:2.8 ain't cheap, and one would need a 1:2 to get there with a 2x TC. (I suppose 6x7 stuff is in a class of dearness of its own regardless? )

I think its got a lot of pf issues. From my understanding the early 6x7 lenses pf lots. Maybe somone with more knowledge in this area could chime in though.

I've had this lens for a short time and shot very little with it. It does show quite a bit of PF, but probably not much more than say 55-300. It is plenty sharp though (probably better stopped down to f8 or so), if you have a tripod that's steady enough to hold the monster. I have a good tripod but should invest in a gimbal head probably.

Your link popped up with several albums but there weren't any descriptions to indicate which photos were taken with this lens, which photos were shot with the 600mm ?

Ah! There aren't any pics in those albums from the 600/4 yet because I've only just shot test images from my backyard with it! Some moon shots, birds on the neighbouring trees, nothing worth uploading. Well, here's the moonshot for what it's worth:



I had trouble with the tripod head, so it was not the best that could be done, probably.

PS Now that there is interest, I will have to take it to a near-by park on of these days.
