A*1200 F8
Oct 12, 2013

Hi everybody

I had the opportunity to catch this very rare item which was available in germany, a thousand kilometers away from home. It is the item which was on sale on e... for a while but at a too high price tag (11000 euros, 14500 $ ouch). I had it at a more decent price !

Here is my current tele lens collection for birding, including :

A*1200F8

FA*600F4

FA*400F5.6

A*200F4 macro

DA*200F2.8

Plus Pentax 1,4XL converter

Looks like this 1200 is a brilliant lens, tests shots at shop shows very good resolution wide open and no aberration at all, more homogeneous than the FA*600 which is not a good performer wide open.

Nature shots will certainly follow during next week, if the weather is fine

Cheers
