High Definition 500mm / 1000mm f/8 Description

An Opteka High Definition 500mm preset telephoto lens incorporates not only computer optical design, but also the latest optical multi-coating techniques. The process of multi-coating assures virtually flare free photographs even under adverse lighting conditions resulting in crisp, high contrast pictures.

Preset Lenses are designed to retain a full range of exposure, automation and metering capabilities of the cameras on which they are mounted. This lens is great for nature and sports photography. The amazing power of this lens gives you the equivalent of looking through a pair of 10x power binoculars. It has a manual preset diaphragm, a rotating tripod mounting collar and a soft lens pouch.

Advances in high-index / low-dispersion optical glasses, new barrel materials, and exotic anti-reflection coatings, along with the latest in computer-aided-design / computer-aided-manufacturing, are combined to produce lenses of unprecedented quality. Diamond-cut from crystal-clear, water-white optical glass, Opteka lenses are ground and polished to a precise precision.

Opteka High Definition 500mm / 1000mm f/8 Preset Telephoto lens Reviews

High Definition 500mm / 1000mm f/8 ReviewsI have seen much debate in the reviews of this lens (which I have also seen branded as Phoenix/Samyang/Rokinon), so I figured I'd throw my $.02 in. I've just recently gotten into photography as a hobby and I'm still learning the very basics of ISO, aperture, shutter speed, etc. and how they all interact, but was looking for an affordable way to get some decent shots of the moon with my newly purchased Nikon D3100. After doing some research, I came across this lens. I was skeptical because half of the reviews (mostly posted by pro-level photogs with plenty of cash to burn) gave horrible ratings because of the low quality of the glass. But was encouraged by the amateur level guys (and girls) who said if you know what you're doing you can get some decent results. There were also a few users who gave bad reviews because the lens "did not work with their camera" or were getting a "no lens attached" error - this lens does not contain any electronics, so everything must be shot in MANUAL mode - If you are looking for auto focus and metering, this is not the lens for you. So, I figured for just about $100, I'd take my chances. And I must say I'm pretty happy with the results - you can see a couple of the shots in the user images. Granted there is some noticeable chromatic aberration, I'm happy with the results so far. And I'm looking forward to using Opteka High Definition 500mm / 1000mm f/8 in the daytime.

Oh, and 47th Street Photo is a great merchant!
