Jorge, it is not the case that I have never heard about that. But I have heard an read about a lot of things that have been handed down without further checking. There are a lot of urban legends around in photography. So please excuse my manner in this case.

BTW: A Rodagon-G is optimized for el-factors above 15x. I dont&#39;t think it performs well at 2x. Mine (105 and 150) do not at these scales.
