A very long lens with great results if you have patience and a smart camera

  • Summary: My first attempt with a mirror lens and was surprised I managed to get some in-focus shots right away. I'm sure the Sony A55 with focus magnifier should get the credit. I'm looking forward to trying it out on the polar bears this September.

disappointing product

  • Summary: disappointed in so many ways * aperture is too big for the focus ring, practically impossible to focus anything that moves * pooly built, does not lock completely in place with my camera body, nudges about 1mm after the lock "click"ed * poor image quality - this was expected, but it turned out a bit worse than I imagined.

You get what you pay for -- you aren't paying much, but you do get 500mm

  • Summary: Executive summary: I have had a lot of fun playing around with it the last couple days and I got some shots that I would not have been able to get otherwise. If 500mm is of interest to you and the donut bokeh rings don't drive you up the wall, then this would be a good way to get started. I am definitely not a pixel peeper so these are more just usage impressions than anything.

  • Summary: Leider habe ich das Spiegeltele zu einer falschen Jahreszeit gekauft und konnte somit noch keine eindeutige Erfahrung sammeln. Denn bei 500mm f/6.3 braucht man schon etwas mehr Licht und das ist in der Winterzeit sehr schlecht. Einige Aufnahmen habe ich angefertigt wobei ich nicht soooo richtig zufrieden war, deshalb habe ich auch die Bewertung auf Durchschnittlich gesetzt. Den Bericht kann man ja immer wieder ergänzen.
