Against the grain . . .

Even though the adapter and tripod collar for the 300PF haven’t arrived yet, I’m already mulling its departure, not enthused about how this copy plays with the 2X. Of course it’ll get a thorough test, mostly to see how effective IBIS is, assuming I’m able to set a comparable R lens profile.

The current CL copy has shown no sign whatsoever of the excessive heating that I experienced with the previous two copies. Move over, Mr. M9; another CL copy is inbound, ETA end of week. If there’s not gonna be a new version, I’m gonna stock up on the old one!
