The lens is what we are currently calling a "dual-platform" optic,
offering full coverage for 35mm cameras and full-frame D-SLRs, and of course
whatever multiplication factor your sensor imposes on the focal length in your
D-SLR. Included is an HSM (motor) which in all cases was silent and swift throughout...

Handcolorists have been doing it for years. They began with a black and white
