from those highlights, i know what lens this was taken with

it is remarkably sharp though. and i am sure the size is very welcome.

Bokek on a regular 500mm for comparison...





-> Less distracting of course but my preference is for the 1st image as it adds character...
(can't help the boat moving between shots though)

nice NHL. I have a personal preference for standard bokeh. but you can't argue for the image quality of that mirror 500, especially when you consider how much you save in size and weight. its really quite impressive.

nice comparison for those that aren't familiar with the "doughnut" highlights a mirror lens imparts in the out of focus areas.

great shot..painted stork i guess.

the 500mm mirror lens image quality is actually great. Just looks like a crop from a bigger picture. Other wise with little editiing i think u can even get the bokeh you want

as i always say.,..for u the camera or the lens doesnt matter..ur a master of this ART
