    Hi everyone,
    New member here, slowly making the transition from amatuer to not-so amatuer. I need some input about mirror reflex lenses, pros and cons and just general opinions from users who have experience with them.

    Thanks,
    Chef

    We had a short thread on this on the 15th, located here:

    There is a link I put in there to a 4-page on-line article about using mirror lenses, written by the late,great photography writer Herbert Keppler. The link begins on page 2 of the 4-page article.

    Mirror lenses are often 500mm lengths, but there have also been some shorter ones, like 250 and 300mm models; I bought my first mirror lens in 1985, a Celestron 300mm f/5.6 in Nikon mount, which is a pretty small,lightweight mirror lens, of only average quality.

    That certainly puts me in the right direction, thank you for the link. I may pick one up purely for the experience with using it, so I can make comparisons with other lenses in the future. Right now i'm still finding good use for my Sony 300 mm. I seem to have the best luck in happening upon good shots with this lens.
