I need a portable solution; Seapy's beautiful accomplishment has the only defect of being hardly portable...

I refute that! LOL  At 71 I have carried it and a large heavy tripod to the tops of mountains and the bottom of large sinkholes on my own!  But I agree for the average sensible person it's probably not pocketable...

Perhaps a lightweight version is begging to be made... Perhaps from 10mm thick metal instead of 25mm.

I think you have quite some margin for a weight reduction, your 1.0 version is safe enough for the 6mm (which is already full circle), the 10.5 is really a diminutive lens, especially after its circumcision...

They are not AFS lenses,,,


10.5mm is AF-G screw driver type,,, The 16mm is AF-D also Screw driver type,,,


The 16mm Ai and Ais, 8mm f/2.8 and even 6mm f/2.8 also take converters very well actually  ;)

I tried it out today: 10.5mm f/2.8 + TC-14A gives a 15mm f/4 (almost full frame). Here is an example (not a very interesting motive, but it shows that it works):
