Default Bower/Rokinon/Samyang 500mm f6.3 (fix)

Got a good deal on it between Christmas and New Year ($169CND) ... so I was unable to resist.

I just got the T-Mount to M4/3 today and tried it inside (~8 feet from the target).

Quite soft .... but it is still the first shot !

BTW, DO NOT order the Fotodiox adapter ... it broke the first time I used it but the Rokinon adapter is fine!

Maybe soft, but you know, it sees at 1000mm way better than I can! :0

Seriously though, I've looked at that (or something similar) a few times but am not sure I'm disciplined enough to always use the tripod like I'm sure it will need

cool, can't wait to see more with it. Like Sammy I have looked at the 500mm mirror lens before but been hesitant due to the lack of reviews, I'm looking forward to seeing how it works for you.
