Product Description

The Vivitar 500mm f/6.3 Mirror Lens is an incredibly compact and lightweight ultra telephoto. Using an advanced reflex design, its compact size provides superior lightweight handling, and maximizes storage convenience. It produces smooth highlights in out of focus areas, which many photographers prize. The minimum focus distance of 6.1 feet allows you to use a faster shutter speed than most lenses of this type. The Super Spectra Coatings assure virtually flare free photographs even under adverse lighting conditions. A simple T-mount adapter makes this lens work with both film and digital SLR cameras.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I've used Vivitar lenses for about 45 years. One of my favorites was a 200mm/f2.8 preset lens mounted on a Nikkormat FT body. It was sharp as a tack and I took many a good picture with this lens. (Yeah. That's right. A PRESET lens in which you manually adjust the aperture so that depth-of-field appears automatically and the camera body sets the shutter speed).
This one, however, was a big disappointment. The resolution is so poor that I just sent it back to Vivitar to see if there is something wrong with it. I own a 1947 Kodak Brownie camera that puts out higher resolution images than this thing!
I've mounted it on both a Nikon D5200 and D52100 bodies mounted on a sturdy tripod with image quality set to Fine, image size set to Large and shutter release set to 2-second delay . . . so camera settings have nothing to do with producing this poor image.
Putting the images through Photoshop and trying to sharpen them is a lost cause.
I've read other reviews in which the reviewer presents fairly decent shots taken with this lens, so I'm hoping mine is a lemon and that Vivitar will send back one that produces decent images.
If the images taken with this lens are "standard", then I'm going to ask Vivitar to refund my money since I can't send it back to the dealer from whom it was purchased.
