        The construction of the lens is good. The only downside : the focus is a bit stiff and too sensitive.

        FOr the price, it takes great pictures of the moon.

        Comments about Rokinon 800mm f/8.0 Mirror T-Mount Lens (Tan):

        Is it sharp? Not terribly but 800mm is powerful, especially on an APS-C camera. I am not a wildlife shooter, I'm a landscape photographer, so I have no reason (and no funds) to invest in anything like this length of lens in a Canon L, for example which would be about 70X the price. This lens is about 70x lighter than a regular big lens would be as well. My main lenses ARE L lenses, but this is for the occasional long shot that crops up, like when wildlife just insists on being photogenic right in front of me or I want to pick out a detail. Images from this will be sent through the full battery of sharpening tools and printed in modest sizes. For that, it's perfect. This lens is f8, so some cameras may not auto-focus with it but the big thing to know is that it does NOT HAVE A DIAPHRAGM so there is no adjustment there. It's ALWAYS f/8, there is no other f stop. So exposure is controlled entirely by shutter speed and ISO. It also means that the depth of field is shallow. Focus is manual and easy and surprisingly smooth. In low light it will be difficult or impossible. If you are not a brain surgeon a tripod will be essential for most situations.Once you learn how to use its limits to your advantage it is fine, but there are some shots that will not be possible, especially up close (which for this lens is about 11 feet) where the DOF is very shallow. But to shoot the occasional bird or long detail this is a great lens for the money. Build is solid feeling with metal barrel and nice appearance. I expect non-photographers to take it for a mark of professionals while they ignore my $1600 16-35L.For less than $200, how wrong can you go?

        Comments about Rokinon 800mm f/8.0 Mirror T-Mount Lens (Tan):

        Its A Great Built Lens, The Fixed F/8 Allows Plenty Of Light Even On Cloudy Snow Looming Days As The Day I Just Shot With It ...
        Manual Focus Ring Is Smooth And Not overly tight or jittery ...
        Overall Feel And Appearance of the lens screams quality !!! I matched this with the Kowa t-mount adapter which is the only metal adapter I've been able to find ...
        I had lots of fun with this lens at an animal sanctuary where the animals had 20 acre lots to roam on and i was able to fill the frame more often than not... My only setbacks are the not so tack sharp focus and a lil undersaturated on the color side ... but overall with a lil editing it"ll be a great addition to my bag
