You may do a search via google or yahoo. There are articles out there that tells you the differences and how to differentiate pictures taken by mirror lens from pictures taken by non-mirror lens.

I'm printing no bigger than 8R. Do you think it's still sharp?
I know mirror may not be as sharp as Normal lens.

Yeah, the difference is mainly in the OOF (out-of-focus) area (background).

Must get a good quality mirror.
So far the better ones are(in choice order):
1) Nikon 500mm F8 (New) Must be the one with orange strip
2) Sigma 600mm F8/? Review is good
3) Tamron 500mm F8

Bro, someone selling tamron 500mm mirror in yahoo auction but got fungus and must send for cleaning. price is nego at $299 (I think)

Happy hunting!
I just found a Nikon 500mm F8N, very lucky!!!! Tested y'day evening. :thumbsup: but of course can't compare to prime.

Read Bjorn Roslett's review. Says the 1000mm F/11 is better, except, it's three times more expensive on Ebay.
