Pros: Value for money, compactness

Cons: Insensitive focus adjustment, sharpness, adapter need

Opinion: Purchased for a few pennies, a precious lens was immediately detected in my Sony APS-C kit. The stabilized sensor of the a6500 allowed me some usability even without tripoid. I often paired it with a 2X teleconverter giving me an equivalent field angle of 1500mm (Photographed car number plates more than 1km away) The focus adjustment ring deserved a less soft mechanism and above all more multiplied, because a stable microregulation is impossible. The lack of sharpness is felt, but at that price what to expect from a catadiotic lens? Tripod practically obligatory. Very recommended for what it costs.

Pros: Definitely the price, the construction seems solid, absolutely fun.

Cons: Image quality does not excel, easy micromox ..... but we're talking about a super cheap 500. Remember the t-mount adapter to the camera format you are using.

Opinion: Lens definitely fun, 500mm for the price of a 50mm f/1.8 (it is only found used since it is out of production) and with a few euros you will find the duplicator, which however makes it even more difficult to handle, but it becomes a 1000mm .... practically a telescope. To be used exclusively on a good easel. Ring booke due to the mirror configuration of the catadiotter allows special light effects. All in all rather sturdy construction. I mounted it on the EOS R with EF adapter - t-mount over the RF EF adapter of the R, both with contacts, the machine goes into crisis.... for the benefit of anyone just insert a piece of tape to isolate contacts between the 2 rings and of course Set the "release of the limiter without goal" in the menu C.Fn5. Absolutely recommended for those who want to try such long optics without spending a capital..... if then the experiment likes you can easily think of buying a lens from "thousand and a thousand" euros .... After all, the investment is palious

Pros: Compact and lightweight (in relation to the focal) - solid construction - Price - blurred (disengagement between the focal planes)

Cons: Limited use to static subjects

Opinion: Had in test x a week - use a Canon 1dIII from the fantastic optical viewfinder and are accustomed to using optical MF from fish eye to medium telephoto - contrary to what I thought, the optical quality and '+ that dignified and in any case it is the last problems --- the maf, without the use of a tripod and live view and 'practically impossible, x want the shallow depth of field due to the long focal length, but particularly because of the maf ring, smooth and precise but with too short a ride x 'optical requiring maf millimeter (especially for distances less than 10 meters) - said that, with static subjects and a lot of patience, gives good shots, (conventional optical views do worse), with the characteristic of offer a break between the focal planes "monstrous" (my 400 f. 5.6 pales in comparison) ---- returned xche 'x my kind of shots (freehand or monopod) was unusable

Pros: Price, sharpness, color

Cons: Manual focus (if you can call a counter) - need to use the adapter

Opinion: I bought it during a solar eclipse and the eclipse of lunarnUn great lens for me, even "fun" to use the manual focus, aperture and aperture fissirnrnOvviamente I consider it necessary to use a tripod. Ah, if you decide to buy it, do not forget adapter (both canon for nikon)

Pros: Price, construction, use charm, absence of chromatic aberrations.

Cons: No, if you are aware of the type of goal.

Opinion: For me it is pure fun, the manual focus and the Fixed Iris really make every picture a picture "thought." In my judgment it is a bench School that every photographer should try because each photo has to be really studied, and above all helps to know more about the possibilities and the limits of your camera, having set all commands in manual mode (in my case I I did learn to find the best setup in the picture style). And 'certainly not easy to use, but I think it's just that its nice. To make the most need a good stable tripod, live view with 5x or 10x magnification, the self-timer to 2 seconds or remote shutter release and the anticipated lifting of the mirror. By doing so, with my little eos 100d I took pictures of the moon and razor-sharp close up flowers (the Minimum focus is indeed about 1.8 m) .rnIl not high contrast, which under certain conditions can be observed, and 'it is easily improved by setting ad the picture stylein the car and is working a minimum of pp (also consider that no chromatic aberrations) .rnConsigliatissimo for anyone who considers photography an art and a continuous challenge, not only the pursuit of the fastest autofocus ...
