Forget the mirrors!

IQ is generally crap apart from the Minolta mirror lens which I once had. Even that lens is substandard compared to something like a tokina 4005.6 apo which is cheaper and easier to carry around.

I even had a sigma 600mm mirror once and it was a complete waste of money compared to buying a tokina or sigma apo 400 for the same price.

IMO you're better saving your money up for a canon 400mmf5.6 or 300mmf4 with a tc.
