Is this apse or full frame? Listing says both.
Asked by: Grant
Since it’s a T-mount lens, it will cover the full 35mm frame. But with the proper choice of adapter it will cover any of the (common) smaller sensors such as micro-4/3 and APS-C

How does this lens perform for dark sky photography being f8? Thank you.
Asked by: Ted
If you are looking for a telephoto lens to only capture a small portion of the night sky, then the Tokina SZX 400mm f/8 Reflex MF Lens for Sony E may be used for your planned usage needs, regardless of the lens' aperture. Usually, when photographing the sky at night, you are not using your aperture for exposure needs as you would not notice depth of field differences when photographing the sky focused at infinity. To control your exposure, most often your shutter speed will be your main exposure component (often using BULB mode).

Can the focal length of this lens be increased with a teleconverter?
Asked by: Paul
This may be used with teleconverters that have no optical tube in their design, but not traditional teleconverters (such as Nikon's own 1.4x and 2.0x) that have them.
