    Ron,

    As usual, these are stunning in their composition and clarity. Given all the discussions about how difficult it is to optimally process Xtrans sensor images, I'm curious what your processing workflow is.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Great images as usual! I finally broke down and ordered this lens and extender combo. Right now B&H is giving you the extender for free, so I couldn't pass that up. I'm pretty sure this lens will not perform nearly as well as my Canon mkii, but I really need to trim the camera gear down to one (lighter) system. Fingers are crossed that my copy is as sharp as yours!
