The first of these is the most important. I have a makinon 400mm that I originally bought for my Yashica 35mm slr. I recently bought an adapter to use it on my 40D. The contrast is so low that it is hard to focus. Also, focus is very senstive, you really need to get it right.

Now if someone made a top quality one with autofocus, it would be wonderful beacuse they are short and light. As it stands, they are just for the odd special effect picture or soft portraits.
