Having a large collection of mirror lenses, I have coveted the Minolta 250mm, f/5.6, but couldn't justify the asking price, so when TTArtisans just came out with a similar lens for a reasonable price, I had to give it a try. It is surprisingly good for a mirror and relatively easy to focus (don't miss the relatively part). I have been playing with it this afternoon and it holds up well even with the R7. Images need a shot of mid-band contrast as always with mirrors, but this is only 25 on "texture knob" so pretty mild as mirrors go. Almost 100% crop.

Lovely hummer! Interesting, what you are doing there with those mirror lenses.
