I get 500mm & 800mm mirror lenses - they're relatively inexpensive, compact and light... but these benefits are surely slight in a 300mm lens, while the trade-offs remain just as big - fixed (and small) aperture, fixed focal length, manual focus, donuts etc.

and has no CA at all, has the same sharpness in the corners as in the center, has only minimal geometric distortion...
