Product Description

The Samyang 500mm f8 MC IF Mirror Lens is a focus fixed lens with a large focal length of 500mm, (750mm equivalent when mounted to a crop sensor camera). The Samyang 500mm Mirror lens is a T mount lens. You simply purchase one of the T/ T2 mount universal adapters listed below, so can be suitable for all mounts including Canon, Nikon, Sony A mount, Sony E-Mount, Pentax, Olympus, and Panasonic MFT.

The Samyang 500 mm MC IF f/8 Mirror is a manual focus lens, The fixed f/8 aperture means there is no aperture settings on the lens to worry about. Due to the very narrow depth of field with such a long focal length it is recommended to focus with live-view to achieve accurate focus. As with all long telephoto lenses a combination of sturdy camera support / tripod, good technique, fast shutter speed, and using a remote where possible is recommended to avoid camera shake to achieve the best results. For moving objects pre-focusing on a point and allowing the subject to reach that point may yield better images.

The Samyang 500mm f8 lens is supplied with 34mm UV ND2 and ND4 filters as well as front and rear lens caps, and a soft lens pouch. Front filter thread of 72mm

    Great lens

    Great lens definitely at the level of the Russian Rubinar correspondents, much appreciated and perhaps superior. A lens that can give you a lot of satisfaction, lightweight, compact and with great value for money.
