Re: Why no mirror telephotos for DSLR Canon?

I have a Cambron 500/8 - 800/12 mirror zoom. The IQ is pretty poor unfortunately. It's very compact for the focal length - about 15cm (6") long.

The main problem with mirror lenses is the awful bokeh - the oof items are doughnut-shaped and very ugly.

Occasionally you can get a good shot without this- say a bird against the sky, but it really does mark it down!
