The D80 is not able to set exposure with non-CPU lenses like your Soligor, so it probably is very far off on the correct exposure. You must operate in Manual mode and choose a shutter speed appropriate for the lighting. Reflex (mirror) lenses have no aperture adjustment, and I'm guessing your Soligor 500mm is probably f/8 like just about every other 500mm reflex. A good starting exposure for a typical sunlit scene would be 4x your ISO setting. For example, at ISO 400 set your shutter speed to 1600.

Fungus inside Rokinon F6.3 mirror 500mm lens


This will have to be sent in for repair, no other way around it. Call a camera repair facility first before you send it in to get a quote, many times a new or used lens is cheeper. Don't forget to check Ebay. Good-luck

I would like to use my Sigma 600 Mirror lense on Nikon M80 digital camara body lense was used on a Pentax Super A camara before can it fit


Sorry, no. If it fit onto a Pentax camera then the lens has a Pentax mount. The Nikon (I assume you mean the D80 digital camera, or perhaps the N80 film camera) has a Nikon mount. Since the Nikon mount has a deeper flange distance than the Pentax mount, there are no adapters available to allow you to fit a Pentax-mount lens onto a Nikon camera.

I HAVE A SOLIGOR 2X CONVERTER AND I NEED A NIKON ADAPTER IS SUCH A THING AVALIBLE


There are a lot of adopter rings available. But most will turn the combination into a MF lens. Most non Nikon tele convertors, only can be used in MF when put on a Nikon camera, so I don't think you lose a lot when you find a Soligor Nikon adopter ring.

Soligor C / D 7 2X MIRROR CONVERTER TO NIKON MOUNT


The Soligor C / D 7 is a tele convertor. If you want to use it on a Nikon, I hope you have the correct connection. Your question implies you are planning to using this with a mirror lens. Most miss or lenses, come with f/1:8 and the convertor will make that to f/1:11. Most cameras only can auto focus till f/1:5,6, so when using this, forget auto focus, because that won't work.

I recently obtained a used Quantaray for Nikon 500mm f8 f/8 Mirror lens. I have a Nikon d3000 and I am not sure how to attach it to my camera.


For Nikon AF and manual focus SLRs. The compatible T Mount System makes it possible to use most any single lens reflex camera in combination with various front camera attachments such as telescopes, mirror lenses and slide duplicators. The T Mount is a metal connector that screws onto the compatible front attachment and allows this combination to be coupled to the SLR camera lens mount.

Can you use the sigma AF 50 -500 Telephoto zoom on a nikon d90?


Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, then yes. If it has a Minolta mount then it won't fit onto a Nikon camera.

How do I mount the 500mm mirror lens filter(s) on my new Rokinon lens?


The 30.5mm rear filters fit in the rear of the lens. If you remove the T-mount adapter, you should see the threads which take the filter.

Minolta to Nikon --Switching to Digital -- LENSE problems


Mirror lenses have no aperture nor AF, so they mount via a T mount. A $30 item that screws on the end of a mirror lens that fits your camera. A mirror lens has it's physical likes and dislikes against a glass 500mm. A glass 500mm will give a better image if you can stop down to F8 F16. Then you have shutter speeds to consider and those lenses are usually connected to the camera's contacts. So they can be specific to a single body. There are older Tamron lenses that take Adaptall mounts, they are old and hard to find. But they solved the multiple body problems for "auto" program lenses. None had AF, when AF camera around, we were back to individual lenses per body.

Vivitar telephoto lense 500mm


Yes and no. If it doesn't come with one, you'll need a T-adapter for Nikon in order to mount the lens (you can get one from Vivitar, as well as from other manufacturers). The lens is not an autofocus lens, so obviously you will have to focus manually. It's also a mirror lens so it has a fixed aperture. It's what Nikon classifies as a non-CPU lens, so you cannot use the D90's exposure meter. You will have to shoot in Manual mode.
