    I while ago I got my hands on an old sigma 500 mm mirror lens. The weather has been bad for a month or so, but today the weather cleared up and I could test the lens for a bit.

    I've heard many bad stories about mirror lenses, but I gotta say, the quality I get out of this one really isn't all that bad. Being an f/8 lens, it's quite tough to get it focussed, but when you get the lens focussed right, it's quite sharp. With some post processing, the contrast and colour are fine too.
    The bokeh is rather bad, with highlights being rendered like rings, but it would be easy to remove that with some gaussian blur.

    Here are two pictures I took today:

    Ok here is another Winter Wonderland picture. All that's been PP in the photo is the WB and it's been resized. Rooz how does this one look?

    Does look better to me^

    In my back yard were a few Red-Wings, I grabbed my camera and they
    started to take off. Not having time to adjust settings this is what I got.

    I am not Rooz either, but a good question would be, how did you sharpen it? With what program? Most of them have options when resizing, maybe experiment a little there.

    Although, this does look better than the first iteration.
