Thank you everyone for the kind comments.

Hi Dawg,

Very Nice!!! One of the very nice things about the quality Cats is that there is ZERO CA/PF since there's no refracting glass -- all the magnification is done by the mirrors.

I had heard that the Series 1 Solid Cats were good, but this is really beyond expectations. This lens seems to be considerably more sharp and contrasty than my Tamron and any other Cats I've seen.

Nice job! -- now you've got to catch this guy out in the open without the intervening branches -- it does make them look very strange. . .

I see "worm like" strands across the images--especially in #1 & 2. Are these btanches in the foreground that are OOF?

You done good, son! :cool2:
The red really sets it off.

Thanks Scott. I'll eventually get more open shots of him. No PF/CA was a selling or should I say buying point for me

You are most correct.
