Item description

The walimex 500/8.0 Mirror Tele Lens has a focal distance of 500mm and a good lens speed of 1:8.0. The sturdy metal housing and the high-quality workmanship and mechanics ensure a good image quality. With a very short closest focusing distance of only 1.7 metres, the lens enables very good magnification. Focusing takes place manually. The lens can be used with aperture priority and manual exposure setting. Thanks to its easy handling, the lens is also especially suitable for beginners.
If the exposure leeway of the digital camera is exceeded, the enclosed neutral filters can be used for the light reduction.
The image scale defines the scale between the image and the object. Scale 1:3 means that the object is 3x as large as the image.
