    Went to my the local Voigtlander/Zeiss/Samyang dealer this evening to pick up the Samyang 8mm Fisheye and got to spend some time with the owner looking at some new items.

    One problem I have noticed with adaptors is they are often a little too thin resulting in a longer-than-expected MFD and the ability to focus way past infinity. This new adjustable adaptor from Kipon takes care of that problem. Ended up bringing it home with me, will test it tomorrow pushed all the way out for some flower macro shots.

    Here is the adaptor:

    I got it from Cosina Taiwan, they have a shop downtown. Very very cool place to shop and chat about up and coming items.
