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

      As with other Rokinon lenses that I own (14f2.8, 24f1.4 and 85F1.4), the Rokinon 500f8 combines high quality optics with excellent mechanical features. A tripod and shutter release are a must to get the best performance with this lens. Images are sharp with excellent contrast. Manual focusing is actually easier to use than most modern autofocus lenses, i.e. modern lenses can take a long time time autofocusing on distant objects because they are fooled into focusing on intermediate objects such as trees and bushes. The only reason I did not rate this lens with 5 stars is because there are a large number of excellent long lenses available with better optics and build quality but costing in the thousands of dollars.

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

      I knew when I bought this that it wasn't going to be the greatest lens. I knew when I bought this that I shouldn't expect much. Everything I thought about this lens was true. Amazing price for any lens. Cheaply made. Not really the magnification of a 500mm. Hard to focus.

      All that being said, the lens works and I think was worth the price. I don't expect to us it much, but when I do, I'll know it will do what it was made to do. Reach out and grab things from further out than I can now reach.

        Recommend a tripod for sure ...
        You can get up close and enjoy one-on-one with some of nature's best kept secrets
        Used on Canon Rebel with the adaptor (recommended separate purchase), and it works perfectly.

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

          I've had this lens for about a month and as time goes by, my photos with it get better and better. I still strugle at times to get a crisp focus, but if you open the focus ring to let more light in as the instructions recommend, focusing is much easier. Lens is fairly light weight and for the money does a good job.

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

          This Rokinon (Samyang) 500mm is a perfectly decent lens. For my documentary film style, which is of composed shots, this lens works very well, and I've gotten some beautiful shots. For a run-and-gun filmmaker or photographer, the limitations of the lens might be a problem. And it does have some definite limitations: f/8 at its fastest; no image stabilization; and no auto-focus. But, as a filmmaker, I find it very effective within those limitations. The lens is physically well-made, being of well-finished metal. I use a t-mount adaptor from Vivitar (probably also a re-branded Samyang) and the 2x adapter. An amazing value.
