The 500mm f/8 High Definition Preset Telephoto Lens is an excellent addition to any photographer’s collection, giving users the ability to expand their creativity and capture incredible scenes from a truly unique perspective.
The Super 500mm / 1000mm f/8 Manual Focus Lens is a classic refractor-style T-mount lens, with an aperture diaphragm in the middle of the lens body to stop down the aperture when necessary. However, it is assumed that much of the shooting with such a lens will be at its maximum f/8.0 aperture, with a tripod, monopod, or other such support. The included 2x doubler converts this 500mm lens into a 1000mm.
When combined with the included T-mount to fit your camera system, this super-telephoto works on both “full frame” cameras as well as the “APS-C” style digital SLR cameras. You can use the lens in “M” manual exposure mode or “A” aperture-priority mode only. This lens’ sophisticated achromatic refractor design yields images with pleasing peak contrast and well-controlled flare. It can be used at maximum aperture on a very bright day for some images of moving subjects like.

- ADVANCED CONSTRUCTION: Featuring an optimized design, this lens uses mirrors and a series of 4 optical glass elements in 4 groups to reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations. An anti-reflective coating suppresses lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color fidelity. The lenses housing is built with a full metal body and rear mount allowing it to withstand wear and tear much better than plastic lenses while commanding a rugged, solid feel.
- LOW DISPERSION – One extra-low dispersion (LD) element is incorporated within the design that helps to greatly reduce chromatic aberrations for increased clarity, sharpness and color accuracy when photographing in strong lighting conditions. Ultra nano multi-coating eliminates lens element reflections and reduces ghost and flare.
- SUPER ZOOM: Manual focus 500mm or 1000mm with the 2x converter, this lens is not only a superb long-range choice but also performs well in a variety of scenes from sports to surveillance to everyday shooting. Feel free to explore the capabilities of this lens.
- PETAL LENS HOOD – Aptly designed with a varying tulip pattern to eliminate vignetting, the petal lens hood is an essential tool for reducing unwanted sun glare from your photographs. With a quick release locking neck bolt, the petal lens hood can be swiveled and locked into any position. In addition to greatly refining your photography, the petal lens hood provides a valuable protection for your lenses while creating a hard shell buffer to reduce potential impact.
