Using a big screen I haveto lean back to get a little more distance than normal. 2. There are numerous repeated features along the vertical ...

According to the pictures only the upper part of the "stem" is flexible. The bottom is a rigid vertical stick. Not a very practical solution.

A positive detail: the LED can be exchanged, so you ca keep the lamp if it burns out.

This idea of reversing the front post for automatic/semi-automatic aperture control is also a standard feature on the more advanced bellows models from Minolta, Olympus and probably many others.

Allow me to correct a spelling error. The name of the species is aspersa (not aspera). It might also be usefull to add that there is an ongoing dispute about the correct nomenclature.
