I love the RF800. My quarry is small birds exclusively. The MFD problem is really eliminated entirely with a 35mm extension tube. Fotodiox make the one I use and I am very happy with it. I don't miss the loss of infinity focus when pursuing small birds and it can always be removed for distant subjects.

The RF800 is just such a joy to use I don't miss the 600/4, the Gitzo and the Wimberly at all!

I’d love to see some of your photos from the lens.


I have posted several. Please search my posts. Here's one, not especially great, taken just today. Converted from RAW. No enhancement or sharpening applied.

Taken at very nearly the 15 foot MFD with the 35mm Fotodiox tube.

Thanks, I have seen the ones you posted already, was interested in seeing more, thanks for sharing the goldfinch shot!
