Excellent work, Gentlemen!

I look forward to posting my own results soon. I just returned from NYC with a TCON-17. (more on that saga later)

keep it up, folks!

So Tom, how have you found using the TCON?

My one seems to live on the end of my camera all the time now.

Looking forward to seeing your tests.

All the best.

Paul.

Hi Paul;

I love the TCON. I got it at B&H in Manhatan. I have to say that was the most bizarre shopping experience I've ever had... But they know their stuff. The staff all stand behind numbered counters. (Next, please...)They find stock items on the computer and conveyors (above, below, beside... etc.) bring the items to them. If you decide to buy, it goes back on the conveyor to the check-out desk. Meanwhile the customer goes to another numbered counter (Please step up to the next available counter...) where you make your payment. After that, you step to the pick-up counter where your purchase is waiting for you... (Please step up...) Last stop is the door where you can pick up any bags you checked at the door... Amazing.

All this being said... I got some great first shots with the lens. It's a little harder to focus than the bare camera, but wonderful clarity. For those narrow Manhattan streets, though, I prefer the wide-angle lens, which really allow you to fit a lot on one shot. It's really easy to focus, too.

One thing I find, though, now that I have a full bag of lenses and filters, is that I sometimes find myself with the wrong lens at an opportune moment. I made the mistake of zooming in with the wide-angle a couple of times... very interesting effect. (but not very useful)

I haven't had the opportunity to re-size any images for posting, but as soon as I do, I'll post some comparison shots.

By the way. Out of curiosity, I stopped at some of the Times Square shops. I tried some shots with a 2x and a 3x "Bower" lens. I'll post those resultsso you can see what those are like. (very funny, actually)

All the best,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada
