55FL & 90FL With New Reducer

As mentioned earlier, a new fluorite member – 55FL is scheduled to be released end of this month.

2555as 2555bsThis is 250mm / F4.5 optics. Like all others BORG objectives, 55FL allows to set 58mm filter in front. A black version will be only available. Pictures show fully solid lens cell. Unlike conventional telephoto lenses, I expect super clean and high contrast image by this optics. The dedicated reducer for covering full frame sensor is planned.

Before leaving for Japan last month, I had somehow a little time to go to the dark site to test a new reducer for 90FL. Unfortunately, sky condition was not totally good. So my goal was to take a shot and see the performance. Following were unguided one JPEG frame taken through thin clouds. Passing clouds didn’t allow me to shoot multiple shots in long time.

As you can see, the reducer creates very clean image entire full frame sensor as initially expected. Hopefully I will try again in the coming new moon time.
