I originally bought it to work with the Canon 50 F0.95 that I had converted to M mount but that particular lens is just too "fat" to mount on the TAP. Pretty happy with how it's working with the other M mount lenses though.

I got up way too early this morning, went out to a remote place, froze in the 25 degrees and 20mph wind...got maybe one usable image...packed it up...10 minutes too soon...once in the car the sky lit up...smh...

That's the way it goes with landscape photography. At least you were out there to try.

On a dreary, rainy morning, this Anna's added some color.

Hummers are such beautiful little birds! We only have one species here where I'm located ( Ruby-Throated ), pretty common in the countryside if you know where to look for them, they eadily approach feeder stations. There hard to find in the city though.

Where I live in Southern California, it's the Anna's like this one or Costas hummingbirds that I see the most. Once in awhile, I've seen a Roufus here but not often.

Here's one more from this set...

Yeah, my main concern was how it would behave with a lens with shallow DOF like my leica 50 1.4 summilux. But since you tried it with several fast lenses id say it is wel worth the money isnt it? Thanks for your report :)

I've used it with fast lenses, and yeah, it just nails it like any other focus. It's really amazing how fast the adapter is, it's like canon USM basically. It makes a little noise like a robot, pretty darn cool. If only TAP could break the code for eyefocus :lol:

I'm digging the rokinon 85 f1.4, it's a pretty small 85 f1.4, the smallest I've ever used (about the size of canon's 85mm f1.8 or 100mm f2), and while the sharpness isnt the level of the 135, dat bokeh is quite amazing, the files that come out are so lush. My biggest annoyance by far is the tripod mount situation. I can carry around a spare base if I absolutely need it......

Maybe i need to try the TAP out... my leica got a little less love because i missed a few shots due to MF

I was just so dang cold...over an hour out in the cold, and it just looked like it was going to fizzle out...I did get to see 2 bald eagles flying around...

Just ordered the Mindshift Hive to store my ND filter kit. Looks very useful.

I probably need to do something like that...I got my filters out today to find that my 3 stop Resin ND has a great big scratch in it...right in the viewing area...not really sure how or when that happened...as I am typically very careful...but the last time I was using them was in Orlando, and I was cramped to say the least...that Filter Hive has that cool strap on it to hang it from the tripod head...I like that a lot...probably gonna need to order that one...

well, TBH...we are going for the International Auto Show...my friend loves the snow and cold, he lives in Houston, TX and would love to live in a place like Chicago or NYC...but all of his family is in Houston. And, I don't mind the cold, I just need to get more prepared for it...snow and cold could generate some unique images...and I plan to go up to the Smokies this year when it snows...I need more snow in my portfolio...
