Re: Super-telephoto lens on budget

Just a thought--the Minolta/Sony 500/8 mirror lens offers a tremendous amount of reach and is available within the same price range.

On an APS-C body it'll have an effective reach of 750mm.

The fixed f/8 is a factor, and the "donut" bokeh is as well. But for sunny day wildlife shooting I enjoy having it.
