    Comments about Rokinon 500mm f/8.0 Mirror T-Mount Lens:

    The lens takes some getting use to since it is a manuual focus and fixed at f8. I am still getting used to it. Clearly the lens does not touch a decent refractive lens. However, the lower weight, size, and co$t make it a handy lens. My use is for wildlife photography as a hobby.

    Comments about Rokinon 500mm f/8.0 Mirror T-Mount Lens:

    I use this for nature photography. Best if used on a tripod for sharp photos. Good quality for a 500 mm reflex.

    Could use a lense hood.
