Quality mirror lenses on the 5D and 5d mk2

Over the past few years I collected mirror lenses! - Well 4 anyway!

The Tamron 500mm f8
Nikon 500mm f8
Contax Zeiss Mirotar 500mm f8
Tamron 350mm f5.6

I have finally written up a comparison article with some sample images.
I fitted all of them to my 5D for the tests.

I subsequently sold all but the Zeiss, so have some 5D mk2 exampe images and comments.

See my blog for the full article.

I hope you find this useful.

Note the hotspot problem, subsequently corrected on the lower image, taken with the Nikon 500mm f8
