Seiko SRP777 “Turtle” finished by 23-59.
There’s a glut of table-top tripods on the market at the moment and literally hundreds to choose from. Some from big names, some from anonymous Chinese start-ups but most are fairly run of the mill and nothing to write home about. Big names on the side mean very little, either. I’ve used a couple of £9.99 eBay wonders that were just as good, if not better, than some of the expensive ones I’ve tried so I was curious when I was handed a Marsace MT-01 and asked to review it.
I’ve often read good reviews of this old ’80s lens so I finally decided to give one a go. If you too are considering it, don’t hesitate, this lens is sharp, beautifully built and with a Nikon 4T or 3T close-up attachment this lens turns into something quite close to the 70-180mm Zoom Micro-Nikkor at about an 8th of the price. Do your due diligence, though as the zoom is loose by design on these and many examples will exhibit severe zoom creep. I managed to find a virtually NOS example with zero creep even vertical and from the images I’ve captured with it thus far it’s unlikely that this lens will leave by bag in this lifetime..
