Great work with the 300mm Leo! Currently my Meyer options stop at 250mm, but looking at MT1 and MT5 in particular, I may go look around to fill this gap in my Day prime options (besides working with 150mm + 2x TC)

Thanks Fred! There's also a Telemegor 400 that I hope to use before the end of the year. They're not very expensive. The nice thing about the 300 is that it's a bit faster than the usual Telemegor 5.5.

A bit monotonous presentation of the Sony 70-400 G2 lens. All photos taken at 400mm and F5.6.
Milkweed and various backgrounds.

More Day 300!

MO1 Freight Train Graffiti Spotting


MO2 Borssele skyline


MO3 Roadscape


all with a7rii + Meyer Optik 1:4 f = 300mm (1991, Made in Germany; T-mount; Orestegor)

This Meyer 300/4 is a historic lens. After 'Die Wende' it was decided to separate the Görlitz plant from the Jena Zeiss combine and transform it into a GmbH . The conversion took place on July 1, 1990. The newly created Feinoptisches Werk Görlitz GmbH again delivered lenses labeled with MEYER-OPTIK and Made in Germany . For example the Meyer-Optik 135 mm f / 2.8 lens with M42 or Praktica B mount, and this 300/4, with T-mount (!) and Exakta mount.

Overall, however, it was not possible to set up competitive production in the short time allotted to the company. On October 3, 1990, and thus immediately before the Photokina , the Treuhandanstalt announced the end of the newly acquired Meyer-Optik on June 30, 1991.

I like #5 RichardT, good use of the reflection and you could even put it upside down to create a trompe l'oeil

I don't find them monotonous mariszlo, lovely colours and detail

Nice 300 shots Leo, but I don't understand the sign on the railcar, it seems evident you can't pull it both ways at the same time

Typical Takumar signature in the first three Paul, the mirror ones appeal less to me in this case.


Here's my first 400 shot, more to follow later

400-1: Busker in front of the central station in Antwerp (just before the Dyxum meet in the Zoo)

A7ii + Osawa 400/5.6 (OM mount)

This gentleman used to be the regular "musician" at our local grocery store for at least the last 10 years but due to the Corona crisis he was no longer allowed to play there, hence his new location. He is from eastern Europe and I helped him several times scanning and improving old/damaged photo's from his family back home. It was nice to see him back after not having seen him for almost 2 years.

Your gentleman looks like he sings with joy.

Thanks Svjetlana, he's indeed a joyful character and does his busking job with pride.

A few more 400 mm photo's

400-2: Penguins in the zoo



400-3: holding up the netting of a giant "walk through" voliere (also in the zoo)


Both A7ii + Osawa 400/5.6 (OM mount)

Today I have three pictures from the Sony A99II and Sony 70-300 G set along with the Kenko 1.4x Teleplus Pro 300. AF works! But the converter is not visible in EXIF.

MO6 Beware of steam trains!
