The Sony 500mm F8 is a reflex lens. Quite sharp, but the bokeh tends to be doughnut-shaped.

Anyone tried any reflex lens before? How is it different from the 'conventional' lenses? :think:
Compact and relatively cheap.

The image will be soft compare to prime.

Personally like the doughnut-shaped bokeh.

Here's 3 examples. BTW the Minolta/Sony 500mm Reflex is the only mirror lens with AF. All others are only manual focus.

From Changi Airshow(in front of Changi Ferry Terminal)





This one produces the doughnut bokeh on the coconut leaves.

This is taken by Nikon 500mm Mirror F8

As good or better than some tele-zoom (of course can't compare to the quality ones...)
