  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Price

  • Summary: Pictures are fuzzy. I tried multiple times to get it to work correctly and this is a waste of money. Save yourself the hassle and do not purchase this lens.

Quality Lens, Bargain Price Rokinon500f8

  • Excerpt: As with other Rokinon lenses that I own (14f2.8, 24f1.4 and 85F1.4), the Rokinon 500f8 combines high quality optics with excellent mechanical features. A tripod and shutter release are a must to get the best performance with this lens. Images are sharp with excellent contrast.
  • Pros: Durable, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: I knew when I bought this that it wasn't going to be the greatest lens. I knew when I bought this that I shouldn't expect much. Everything I thought about this lens was true. Amazing price for any lens. Cheaply made. Not really the magnification of a 500mm. Hard to focus.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light
