Anyone going to give them a try?

In the past I have dance with the idea of buying a mirror lens but just felt they are not worth it.

These look more compact than previous models

Might be of interest...  Canon has been looking at revamping Catadioptric ('Cat') lenses recently.   This patent shows they were busy exploring alternative lenses about 5 years ago.  The Patents were allegedly for a 400mm lens, an 800mm lens and a 1200mm lens.  DPreview made a mention of this back in December 2017.
