Oak Titmouse

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

The Oak Titmouse is a member of family Paridae which inludes Chickadees and Tits (I didn't name them, I'm just the messenger!). The Oak Titmouse is primarily a California resident, with a few populations in Baja California to the south and Oregon in the north. The Oak Titmouse, like all Paridae, are the definition of the word kinetic.

 

As its name implies it's preferred habitat is oak woodlands, where they nest in a tree cavity; this morning I found a pair bringing breakfast to the kids:

technical stuff: R8/DMR, 280mm f/4 APO + 2x APO-Extender-R. All comments welcome.

Beautiful. I particularly like the angle of the branch which compliments the angularity of the plumage.

Very nice Doug, 2x really working well for you the fine detail in the picture is amazing.

I am waiting for mine to get here from Switzerland got it for 840 with shipping sounded like a good deal to me.

Question for ya Doug. The 14299 macro adapter for the 280mm is it Rom?

Cheers Jan

Thanks for your comments Jan (and everyone else). It looks like the 2x APO is earning a permanent home in my gear bag. Combined with the 280mm f/4 APO it's a 560mm f/8 APO-Macro

About the 14299 - yes I believe it's ROM. Instead of the 14299 I'm using my Universal Extension Tube-R (UET-R) which provides the same focussing range as the 14299 but may be used on all Leica reflex bodies and most lenses.

      The optical and mechanical elements of the lens are in excellent condition, with clear glass and perfectly smooth focusing. The retractable sunshade has some minor damage but that does not interfere with the optical or mechanical operation of the lens, that work superbly.
      The sale also includes an original Leica R-M Adapter ROM, #14642, in new condition, as well as a 60mm Leica Uva filter to use with the lens.
      This lens has an exceptional optical resolution and color rendition.

      I had my heart set on getting a used Noctilux 50MM f/0.95, but I also found a used Noctilux 75MM f1.25.
      I wanted the 50 because I regret selling my Summilux ASPH 50MM - I really miss that dreamy/creamy look! The 50 Noctilux could be a suitable replacement, with an extra stop to boot! The "more usable" focal length is another plus.
      On the other hand, the 75 is appealing to me because it is a more modern lens with less CA/purple fringing, less vignetting, and a sharper look. I also don't have any 75MM yet. I shoot a lot of portraiture, but admittedly it's more environmental, so not totally sure if 75MM would be the right FL anyway. Still, I think I could make use of the 75.
      Any thoughts on which one would be "better," all things considered? Do I get both?!
      FYI - I am shooting on an M10 and also have a 50 APO and a 35 Lux FLE.
      Thanks all!
