April 13 2008


I’m starting up my lens reviews again, this time it’s the Sony 500mm F/8 reflex lens, which is basically a telescope you attach to your camera.  Its equivalent APS-C length is 750mm. This particular review is a little different than my other lens reviews, because of the fixed aperture and lack of zoom.  I did include bokeh examples which can be quite pleasing if you have enough distance between the subject and background.  Normally, the Sony 500mm reflex rates poorly for bokeh, but check out my sample shots. I don’t have anything I can directly compare to this lens as far as sharpness-vs-length is concerned, but as soon as I do, I’ll post the results.
