  1. Fantastic work in here, Matthew. I really like “two-sided” and the warm-concrete one. Looks like a beast of a lens, too! How’s the balance?

    • Thank you Martin, it’s a heck of a lens in looks, but it’s surprisingly light-weight for what it is. Since it’s longer than it needs to be (for a 105mm f/2.8), the weight balances nicely over the entire left hand. The entire lens is essentially the focus ring! With the extension tube attached though, it feels more like a telescope. However, I never use it with the extension tube handheld; getting sharp images at anything greater than 1:2 magnification without a tripod is a crapshoot!
