    Nice! You eclipse photo turned out well with that. I plan on trying something similar with my Nikon d300, Opteka 500mm, Tamron x2 combo.

    nice ! I am planning to get a reflex lens, but not much reflex lens is being produce now. Was looking the one by Kenko and Rubinar. But never thought of getting the Nikon one (a reason is that it is much $$ than the 2 mentioned above). How do you like your lens, any suggest for me to get a high image quality but not that expensive reflex lens? Thanks.

    Chris Hemmerly That is true...I'm a Nikon operator and have never seen this hybrid before...interesting, wonder's if it works the opposite (Nikon w/Canon lens).
