    FOCAL LENGTH: 600mm
    f-STOPS: 5.6-45
    PERIOD: 1958-1966
    INSCRIPTION: MINOLTA TELE ROKKOR - TD 1:5.6 f=60cm
    DESIGN: 4/3

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    It does help to have some shadow contrast with the sun off to the side.

    Let's see a full moon, when you get a chance. It should rudely less clear. I know it is for moi.
