I've never seen the lens, so I have one more question: what are the eyes, 
are they something that travel seperately from the lens until needed or 
are they part of the lens that you can put into position for NF? When you 
say pulling the lens out do you mean taking it off of the camera?

Thanks again for your help. I am keenly curious about any lens that will 
scare the hell out of jurors. Can you use it to give them the evil eyes?
