Re: Samyang 300mm mirror & Olympus 12-50mm lenses

300 arrived safely, while I was at a fire drill. Very well packed.
I'll be trying out over lunchtime, it looks perfect!


Update.
Yes, it works well too
Focus control needs very gentle handling, but I did manage to get it right. No IBIS on my camera so handheld shots can suffer from shake.
The very quick try on my full spectrum camera suggests it's not ideal for going beyond the visible - there's more focus shift for IR than with my other mirrors. (A slight disappointment for me, but no reflection on Paul)

Thanks Paul - 10 out of 10 for service.

that's the problem with knowing stuff - I just thought it took nice pictures

Thanks for the feedback
