Will Reikan FoCal support it?

How's the weather sealing?  Just mist, or can I let it get really rained on when I am shooting Japan from Oregon?

Do you think I should buy this one?  Or should I wait for the mark-2?

The surface of the Moon should do, maybe the Chinese could plant a copy there if we ask nicely.

It isn't actually a lens that can be used alone. It is a field corrector meaning it corrects distortion present in large telescopes so that images can be captured.
