The 500 Reflex is definitely a niche lens but it does have utility. IQ wise it's not bad at all, it's main flaws imo (having owned it) are low contrast (easily fixed in pp) & it's fixed f8 aperture (no DoF control & limiting exposure combinations). Ironically because of it's light weight it requires good technique to minimise movement.
