New Lens

I finally decided to try out another of the legacy lenses today. It was raining so I worked under an umbrella. I inherited diabetes and am about half blind today (It comes and goes) so I was real happy to have the new viewer.

This is a 200mm multicoated, f4 lens shot at 1080/24 ..shutter50 about half open. Iso800 and in TE mode.

Profile was Smooth -2, density and spectral enhancer added in post.

Re: New Lens

I just finished researching it.

Tokina RMC 80-200mm F/4

This lens can be bought for peanuts, it's well built and delivers amazingly strong images considering its age and compact size. The only negative quality I can see is a slight amount of colour fringing at wide apertures but certainly not enough to spoil the party. Overall I recommend this lens and I find it's superiority to modern consumer equivalents a real hoot, If you can do without autofocus this lens will give you a real step up in quality and it's not alone! In time I will show you models from Tamron, Vivitar, kiron and others that can all be had for similar money and exhibit similarly good performance!
