 Mirror telephoto lens.

 6 elements in two groups.

Manual focus.

MFD 1.15 mts.

Magnification ratio 0.4X

67mm filter thread.

No communication with the camera body.

ML version has an extension tube making it 110mm long.  weighs 550gms.

DSLR version is 80mm long.  weighs 500 gms.

Diameter 74mm

Based on the standard T mount with appropriate adapter for each mount.

Available 15 september for 170 euros.

 

   With the amount of mirror telephoto lenses around S/H for very little, one wonders why Kenko would ever bother.......Kenko call it version II,  but is it because there is a warehouse of modified old stock that's trying to cleared out, or is it truly new?

 

   Either way it has the usual lack of contrast and will be a struggle selling it!

The reported weight is significantly higher than the earlier/current version.. But the rest of the specs is identical. As are the looks.
