FS in the UK: Kenko's very compact and very sharp 400mm mirror lens. T mount, with caps, box, instructions, all looking like new. It would make a great present. I bought this new maybe six months ago and have used it a few times, but I now have too many lenses to keep everything!

I can probably supply pictures if needed, but really it looks exactly like the new ones. Colour is titanium. It's a T-mount fit; the box doesn't include an adapter so you can fit it to practically any ILC. I use an M42 plus James Liao chipped one for accurate IBIS. It works on APS-C and FF (or indeed micro 4/3) and it is very small - only a little larger than the Minolta 50mm f2.8 macro and smaller than the 100-300mm. It's the smallest mirror lens I've seen that is any good, and it's optical quality is far superior to the little Opteka thing.
On distant shots the donut effect is not noticeable unless you pixel-peep, but if you deliberately mis-focus you can get some lovely donuts on Chrismas lights, and it will just about fit in a pocket if you want to carry it about off the camera.

First offer over £170 UKP if you're interested. PP free (RM signed for) in the UK, but elsewhere by arrangement/extra cost. If it doesn't sell here, it will go on ebay in a month or so.
