  • Summary: Purchased from Cameta Camera last month as an astrophotography lens with a T-adapter for my Fuji X-T1. Did not have super-high expectations, as 'cheap' mirror telephotos have hit-or-miss quality control - good ones are awesome for the money, bad ones, well, suck.

Samyang 500mm f/8 ultra telephoto manual focus mirror lens

  • Summary: I actually love this lens.. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because you have to purchase a separate T-mount adapter that doesn't come with it. I forgot to buy the T-mount so I haven't been able to use this lens yet.

  • Excerpt: I was looking for something small & inexpensive and easy to stuff into my camera bag, but not necessarily something my livelihood depended upon. This lens fit well into that idea. It is sharp enough, but lacks the crisp clarity / contrast I would like to see.
  • Pros: Added Filters Included, Compact, Lightweight
  • Cons: Lacks Claritycontrast

cheap, but tricky to focus

  • Excerpt: You can focus if subject doesn't move, camera is on a tripod and iView with zooming in on the display is used. Even if zoomed perfectly, this lens is VERY SOFT. Manual focus on moving subjects is difficult.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Long focal length
  • Cons: Manual Focus Tricky, No Auto Focus, Poor in Low Light

Excellent quality / price. Recomended for normal light conditions

  • Summary: Excellent quality / price for a telephoto lens of reduced size and powerful. Although low light, this lens gives very good results in average light conditions and macro photography, supported by the flash.
