Re: Old 500mm mirror lens

I've used my father's 500mm nikon mirror off my tripod with some good success. it was all manual work but it was better than my sigma 70-200mm and a 2x teleconverter. unfortunately, as soon as i show him it still worked he took it back (i should have lied).

amazon if full of opteka/bower/phoenix mirror lenses in 500mm and 800mm for $100 and $200 respectively. has anyone tried those?
