Long reach for cheap
Jan 13, 2013

Here are some samples from my K-01 using a low cost mirror lens. These Samyang lenses are 500mm and can be purchased new for about $110.00

The cheap mirrors have a bad reputation because they are hard to focus but the focus peaking of the K-01 sure helps. Mirror lenses are known for low contrast but it can be overcome with post processing. I did these with Lightroom and added clarity and sharpness. They were taken on a tripod with 2 second delay so I didn't bother to set the focal length.
