Daft Punk: I have never seen anyone using one of these out in the field.

Anyone with experience care to share what they are like ?

Like the other correspondents here, I've tried Tamron and Vivitar catadioptrics, and the best was the very neat Zuiko 500mm f/8 from Olympus, but it was only as good as the current 70 - 300mm kit zoom. DoF is minimal, and camera shake is horrendous. On a digital Olympus with in-body stabilisation it was possible to focus and get sharp images with excellent contrast, but the narrow DoF plus the donut highlights only confirmed what I'd learned in the days of film, that if you use long lenses, refractors are better than cats, unfortunately.
