Glad you liked the results. Others mentioned the improvement wasn't exactly striking but for me the difference was more than I expected and I was really glad to see that the SK lens didn't introduce any CAs. ....

Christian, maybe we are miscommunicating. (...) The specs clearly say that the lens is NOT apo corrected over the whole visible spectrum. It is corrected for 480nm-1800nm. In contrast, the wavelength range of the normal 10x apo is 435nm-655nm. .... I don't know how bad they will be, but there must ...

No, for the reasons I just gave. The specs clearly say it is not corrected for blue light. Lou, perhaps I said it not clear enough: I'm, for myself, not interested in the near UV correction / blue light at all and did not point to the correction of the blue light. I just wanted to explain, that the...

... Yes, the spectral range is bigger than that of the ordinary Mitutoyo lenses, but the range is also shifted toward the IR end of the spectrum. Lou, if I try to read it critical AND if the wording in the Mitu description is not just plain / fooling advertising -- for "our" normal use of light in ...

My guess would be big blue/purple CA. Hi Lou, do you meant this " big blue/purple CA" for the range outside the specification or do you mean this for the complete objective? "Mitutoyo’s NIR, NUV, and UV infinity corrected long working distance objectives combine the benefits of the standard M Plan ...

great test, once more

Dear Robert,

a great test, again as we could expect from you...

And again as we see the result of the Minolta and the "cheap" Tominon 35 mm in the second place (if we consider a reasonable price for most of us): I love the tiny setup / length that both need.

All the best,

christian
