Samyang / Rokinon Reflex 300mm f/6.3 ED UMC CS (Sony E / NEX)

* Reflex lens (special bokeh, fixed aperture, ...)
* Infinity focus is almost impossible or a trial & error process. Even incremental adjustments of the focus ring will result in over- or undershooting.
* Alway re-check photos (adjust focus if not sharp - you will have to)
* Tripod & 5 seconds timer required (even with Sony IBIS set to 300mm)
* Sharp (if focus is set correctly)
* Suitable for bright light photos (not for low light)
* Very compact and lightweight
* Cheap

Biggest disadvantage: Even with focus magnifier very difficult or almost impossible to focus to infinity (compared to other manual lenses)
