At Overstock.com they have a 500mm f/6.3 mirror lens for *** in white or *** in black. I suspect the only difference is the color but I bought the black one anyway. Do a search there for "Rokinon olympus" and you'll find the lenses they offer.
Results after a non-extensive fun test this past weekend are... Wow!
--Razor thin depth of field (no fault of the lens I assume)
--Potentially bad bokeh due to the mirrors (Mmm Donuts...)
--You'll need a mono- or tripod to raise your keeper rate
--On a bright day, you'll probably need an ND filter because of the fixed aperture
--95 mm filter size will make for pricey filters
--I wish the focusing "grease" was a tad thicker (personal preference)
--Considering the price, it's a LOT of lens - 5 star bang for the buck
--With Oly's 2x crop, we're looking at a 1000 f/6.3
--Edge sharpness seems great, probably thanks again to the 2x crop
--Thanks to the in body stabilization on my E620... It's image stabilized
--Very compact and light - not a **** lot bigger than the 12-60 or 7-14
--Works with the EC14 (1.4X) to make a 1400 f/8!
--If you ever want to "reach out and image someone" - this is your lens, for peanuts. Yes, it's not perfect but jeesh if you want autofocus and anything near 1000 f/6.3 you are going to spend a bunch of money. Oh, and you are going to have to sling it on your back. And it's going to weigh, around 5 lbs or more.
