<<<Is that one of the little 8-degree adapters?
Nope, one of these guys for FF.
10 deg max tilt I think and can rotate to make it a swing--every 22 deg or so.
It is wonderfully engineered. I apparently have the only one ever made for OM.
I bugged Markus Michelberger at Mirex for months to help engineer it. John H
installed the "meter tab"
for me though I don't think was that happy working on it. It did the trick
fine. Moose knew what it was missing off the bat. He has a wonderful
encyclopedic understanding of OM
I use Mamiya lenses on the front but have a think Mamiya to OM adapter too for
use with the 135/4.5 made by Ian at Srb Griturn.
I never heard of Rafcamera before but it is excellent to know they do custom
work. I hope SRb still does as they were excellent. My T-S bellows is a bit
too fiddly mostly due to small size size. I became overly busy at work
and other projects but think I would like a Mamiya T-S bellows more and put the
Mirex on the rear standard to enable more movements there as it has none. John
Shaw did write about the Nykon one in his first book.

Very cool! I hope it works. I wish the xpol T10 filter worked with the 38
macro. I think the lens extends too far .Perhaps something can be rigged. I
do have pol material to place over T28 flash or other flash as a DIY xpol set
You do need enough umph out of the flash as one loses almost 5 stops---am
guessing on the exact amount.
