    I have a reverse lens mount that I've used to pretty good effect on some of my non-macro lenses. It doesn't approach the quality of my dedicated 40mm micro, but it's still pretty acceptable - especially considering the 7 dollar price tag. Haven't tried extenders, but I know a lot of people swear by them also. I hope that Tokina does good by you!

    I saw that... looks like it didnít include the EVF. Iím actually starting to sell off my N1 gear now that Laurie is using the X-T20 instead of the J5.

    If you read further down in the description of what comes in the box both the Viewfinder & hand grip are listed. According to the person who posted the link he did get both items with his camera. If they aren't included the camera will go back.

    Glad your wife is enjoying her X-T20, I really like mine.

    Just bought a Sigma 50-100 f1.8 from Amazon and showed up today. Boxing it back up to go back to Amazon because they sent me a Canon mount even though the box says Nikon and the listing on Amazon says Nikon. How disappointing! Also ordered an X4 lens filter from Breakthrough Photography that needs to be returned now too along with the Sigma dock. Grrr!

    0-for-2! Dude, that sucks. I hope the return and replacement is quick and painless. But damn, that really does suck.

    Nope- Amazon says they will not replace the lens. They said if I wanted to return it, they would provide a refund. I knew it was too good to be true. Found it $200 less than everywhere else. No wonder they dont want to deal with a replacement. Sucks because now I gotta return everything else I got for this lens too. What a pain!

    You're kidding? Even though the item was listed incorrectly on their end?? Jesus, Bezos can suck it. That stinks.

    Any thought to selling it on Craigslist for a hundred bucks or so more than you paid for it? Still sounds like it would be a good deal to someone with a Canon, and give you a bit more towards a lens that actually fits your rig.

    Jeez....

    Its back to the jungle with that lens. Too bad, it felt better than I thought it might. I heard a lot of noise saying it was a huge heavy lens. For obvious reasons, I never got to mount it and feel the body lens combo, but the lens felt great!

    Enter the "Mini-Beast II". The "Beast" of course, is the 600 mm f/4 ED-IF AIS Nikkor and the "Mini-Beast I" the 300mm f/2.8 ED-IF AIS. The "Mini-Beast II", and a beast it is, is my new (to me at least, I am the second owner) a mint condition 200mm f/2 ED-IF AIS Nikkor. It will be used primarily for outdoor portraiture but perhaps for some short range wildlife as well. On the D7100 it becomes a 300mm f/2. On the D850 it is astounding how sharp it is, even wide open. But it is no lightweight. As you see it in the image below, mounted on the D850 with battery grip, it tips the scales at s hefty 9.1 lbs. It is, however, beautifully balanced and I can hand hold down to 1/125 with no problem. There is both a sliding (and locking) lens shade as well as a detachable one.

    Even though the V3 kit I bought from Adorama was superposed to include the viewfinder & grip it did not. So off it went back to them. To Adorama's credit they really tried to make this right, but in the end no joy in Mudville. crashton has struck out.
