    why would you buy two, though?

    isn't the point that you'd only need one?

    Id just buy a midget from overseas, mount it to his shoulder, and I could stand behind directing the camera :rofl: :wiggle:

    but wait, is this even theoretically possible? would the filter size/front glass have to be like 500mm?

    one for each camera, so I wouldn't have to mount and dismount. considering I won't be needing anymore lenses, I'll sell everything and have those 2 as walk around.

    maybe I'll buy the 5.0 TC they'll bring out for it too... 3000mm f/1.4 > your tiny 1200 bullshit. :o

    then I can go outside w/ my 5.0 TC + 600mm f/1.4 lens and take pictures of ants on the moon. :big grin:

    no need for duct tape, ive got a reverse ring coupler, I always had a hard time with the focus, so i gave up on it after about 5 or 6 tries, I need a bit more working distance.
