I am shooting a film on a PL mount camera which will require some very long shots. I have done some test work with a canon 70-200 with a 1.5X converter on a 1.6x crop camera and even that wasn't quiet where we needed to be. Anyone know any good solutions that can get longer then an Optimo that I'd be able to track down in chicago?




thanks

Otto Nemenz and Clairmont have Cannon 150-600's which are really nice lenses.

Thanks for the recommendation! otto nemenz has one that is a 5.6 150-600 that is pretty close to what I need. It is night work though so I was hoping to at least be at a 4


If there are any other suggestions it would be very helpful


thanks!


EDIT***

otto seems to have a whole list of converted lenses, Primes too that look really good.

This will probably work out, thanks!

Haha, it is very interesting to shoot that long. At the same time some things needs a huge move to be right, a panning of the camera over 1" might solve a problem too.
