    Just recently done my 4.6x42 XT with the 135mm lens, totally transformed the scope. I got mine on Ebay, spent every night for about three weeks looking for the right one and when I did it was like brand new, the box was a bit scuffed but the lens and case were immaculate, and guess what, it came from a charity shop in Essex, keep looking, good luck, you will find the right one.

    Don't bother with a 150mm lens - you won't get one with less than f4 aperture (unless you pay stupid money)
    135mm is a much better bet since there are plenty around with f2.8 aperture at sensible prices.
    A photon extreme with a 135mm lens is going to give you around x16 magnification and a very narrow field of view.

    Cheers

    I'm happy with mine at 300m, not that I'm shooting at that range, you need a decent IR source at that and as mentioned above quite a narrow field of view.

    Here's a link to my intro page on the nightvision forum Re NVF newby - www.nightvisionforumuk.com I'm not sure if you will be able get into the links in the replies on the page without login but the first reply has a link with everything you need to know

    I've been given a pentax takumar 55 1.8. Would that be any good to go on one?

    For the closer stuff, rats and rabbits I would think, type in photon extreme on you tube there's some footage of 55mm, 105mm & 135mm

    It will be used on the .22lr for rabbits when I get an adapter
