Friends, I am contemplating a long lens - probably the Hasselblad 300mm. I have the Contax adapter which I use primarily with the 120mm which is a splendid piece of glass and a veritable bargain in the world of Leica lenses. But the Contax ZEISS TELE-APOTESSAR 350MM F/4 weighs in at over 8lbs, with the Hasselblad at less than half that. The Zeiss is $1000 more on the used market as well. Though getting the H would necessitate purchasing the H adapter.
But to my question. I am interested to know what the magnification increments are with each click of the wheel on my S body when it is in "zoom" mode. Let us say I am shooting the 70mm. There are four available click enlargements. Frankly, I cannot eyeball whether there is a 1.5x magnification with each adjustment or not, but that is what I would guess if I had to. If so, it would go 70 to 105 to 157.5 to 236.25 to 354.375. If I am close to the actual intervals, the ultimate adjustment would give me a pretty good sense of what a 300-350mm lens would see.
Please educate me.
