Build quality


All metal but still lightweight.

Conclusion

I didn't have high hopes in terms of image quality for this but its better then I first thought.
But f/8 is far from impressive and the poor light intake makes it hard to use especially if you use a old manual camera.
So this work better on a digital camera with live view.

Thumbs up:
Lightweight for a 500mm
13 bladed aperture

Thumbs down:
F/8
