    Well sports fans, just for shits and giggles I just did a little comparison
    test between the Canon Super 70-200 f/2.8L (and the Vivitar 2x TC) and the
    cheapo Phoenix/Samyang 500mm mirror lens.

    As you might expect, the Canon trounced it in picture quality, even with the 2x
    TC attached.

    See for yourself:

    If you choose the "original" setting at the bottom you can see a full-sized
    version of each pic.

    Now do it on Velvia with the 70-200 2xTC @ f/8 and scan it... or have
    you returned the scanner...

    Cool, then you probably want to dump the phoenix. $50 sounds about right ;-)

    Well duh. But how much did the -better- setup cost and how much does it
    weight, length etc. And all mirror lenses aren't junk, then again some are.

    Actually, that's an old test of whether someone is alive or dead, whether the
    moisture from their nostrils can fog a mirror. I guess its also a test of
    libido too though, photographically it may mean you're drooling on the lens too
    much ;-)...

    So do those same "licence plate" shots with film ... (just the 70-200 +
    2x TC).

    I can't wait for the cheerleader phots. Get a good stiff tripod. Did
    use the word 'stiff' talking to Bret about cheerleaders? Oh-oh.

    And here's a hint for you: in the month or two before Christmas, you're
    supposed to buy presents for people other than yourself!
