Product Description

Brand NEW Studio Series 500mm f/8 Telephoto Mirror Lens

This Studio Series lens is computer-designed using a combination of lenticular light refraction and
reflection optics--the same physics used in many professional telescopes.
Combined with advanced manufacturing techniques, the result is a lens with very sharp picture
quality with less color abberation which is considered the most harmful factor in the field of
telephoto photography.

This lens is a highly complex, precision-made, optical instrument it is also compact and lightweight.
It is ideally suited for wildlife and sports photography. It has a fixed aperture of f8. It comes with
a soft pouch and three (3) rear mounted 30.5mm filters - ND2, ND4 and Skylight.

I have used the product for 2 days.
The best focus obtainable with this lens, even at long range (1 mile), after running carefully through a fine-focus series, is still very blurry. I compared it to my home made mirror telephoto lens, which gives crisp, nearly diffraction limited image quality. Even when I modified the 500mm f/8 lens to operate at f/11, the improvement was not worth the effort. Since I cannot return it (because of modifications) I will try to find some way to use it - - maybe as part of a holiday ornament. I am a retired physicist with considerable optical skills.

It isn't a bad lens for the price. The only reason that I bought this lens was to get some good shots of the moon, and it did its job. I'm sure with high-end lenses one could get cleaner photos, but with something that I will only use once in a while it was well worth its price.

I chose this Lens because it was the same build as the famous Sony version for my Sony Alpha.
Great potential, but so soft it was unusable. Honestly I have a Tamron 18-270mm, and using this and cropping to the same size gives me a superior result..... This lens is manual everything, and image stabilisation does not have much effect, even on a monopod.......

Sorry.... Spend the extra on a real lens

I bought this lens to take better picture of the moon. It came with absolutely NO instructions. I have no idea of how to use it or the filters. It was a waste of my time and money. I've tried to find a "manual" on line without success. I would NEVER recommend this lens to anyone.
