Re: Resolution and magnification

"my favorite "cult lens", the Tamron CF Macro 35->80mm/f2.8 (01A). I do not have any conclusions to post YET."

Hi Stew, this thread has got WAY too convoluted for me to follow properly, but that is the exact lens (I've only got one at the moment, but I know of "sample variation" and I keep a watching brief on the bay to get at least one more at a reasonable price) which was used in the alleged garbage "test" that my big bro posted.  One quibble though, it's only f/2.8 at 35mm, it drops down to f/3.8 @ 80mm, I believe. There's another current thread on here on the benefits (or not) of fixed aperture zooms so you don't want to go confusing people ;-))

I posted this before checking all the updates, sorry if it's already out of date.
