The 500mm f/8.0 Telephoto Lens for T-mount from Vivitar is an ultra-telephoto lens that brings distant objects close and is ideal for wildlife photography. It is also used for landscapes, cityscapes, architecture, sports and celestial photography and multiple general photography applications. The lens' multi-coating process provides even light transmission and minimizes flaring to produce sharp, high contrast images. A built-in rotatable tripod collar provides vibration-free stability when used with a tripod or monopod. This lens requires a T-mount adapter to attach to a camera body, but can be compatible with virtually all film or digital SLR cameras.

      Comments about Vivitar 500mm f/8.0 Telephoto Lens for T-mount:

      I have taken some great pictures of the moon . I like it because it slows me down and take my time to get it just right. I suggest you put the camera in manual before you start taking picture with this lens.
