    As an 800mm (EFL-effective focal length) for this 500mm f6.3 lens on a APS-C class camera (Canon EOS T1i) you must multiply the mm by 1.6 to get the actual 35mm Camera equivalent focal length, this lens is awesome! For such a long, as in mm, not length, this lens is fast! At a MLB game, I was taking pictures at 1/240th of a second which is way fast enough to eliminate hand held jiggles as well as STOP the action. As mentioned earlier, the marked feet guide on the lens is an approximation, thus, infinity is not necessarily infinity. When taking star photos, you must focus them. Due the fast speed on this lens f6.3, there is a VERY narrow depth of field, even at 1000 ft, you must focus closely to get a great picture. The depth of field seems to be about a 6-12 inches at most. When taking nature photos, try what you think looks sharp, then go forward slightly take a picture, then back slightly and take another, from the 3, you will get some great pictures. I also use a doubler on this lens making it 1600mm (EFL) with f12.6. This makes for much easier focusing due to the larger depth of field but you need MORE light to take pictures. In a lighted stadium, with the doubler, you will still be above 1/125th of a second, still faster than a somewhat steady hand. For the price, this is a great value! Enjoy!

  • Nice to have a 500mm at an affordable price.

    If you remember that this is a manual focus lens, and has a shallow focus field and that it is a 6.3 lens, its a great inexpensive way to get a 500mm lens. I read the reviews the pros and cons and I am glad I finally made the purchase, I tested it at the local zoo with great results, I used a monopod and it worked quite well, better to use a tripod if you can. I also purchased the hood which I found on an ebay search (recommended). Good quality.

  • Comparison with Amazon

    I was in the market for this lens and found that it was $10 more at Amazon, but included a 2X doubler. Check before you buy.

    I have been a photographer am. and pro for 35 years. I was knocked off my chair by how well this lens is crafted. Solid but not too heavy. Lens and mirror are spotless and the quality of the photos are great. This should be in every photographers bag.

    This is a great lens for taking shots at a distance. My hand is not very sturdy so I do need a tripod when I use it or the shots come out a bit blurry. Great price and bang for the buck. Worth having in your collection of lenses. Great for nature and sports picture taking. ENJOY!!!!! Overstock shipped and it was here in my hand in no time.... AS ALWAYS!!!!!

    Having an interest in wildlife photography I needed a lens that would get in there from a distance. For a while I'd been lusting after those long lenses but they were beyond the capability of my pocket. Surfing one night for lenses I came across the Rokinon 500mm f/6.3 mirror lens. The price was ridiculously low for a long focal length lens which was not altogether surprising considering some poor write ups I'd seen on mirror lens reviews. The price was such that I thought it worth giving it a try. The only drawback that I found with the mirror lens was the donuts that materialise in out of focus detail. Now having said that it is not a problem with simple or flat backgrounds and can easily be dealt with with a little image manipulation. The in focus subject of the photograph is sharp (depending on your abilities with manual focusing) and because of the aperture of the lens contains more detail. I was very pleasantly surprised at how manageable the lens was in the field. The compact nature of the lens makes it easy to handle. Even though the focal length is 500mm I found I was easily able to use it without support though a tripod (or monopod) is always needed in poorer lighting conditions. This is a solidly contructed piece of equipment and the value for money enormous. For those on a budget wanting to get in close, this is a must have lens.
