    You're not expecting the autofocus to work, are you? The lens is strictly a manual-focus lens. Nor will it focus much closer than about six feet (you didn't specify which 500mm mirror lens, so it may focus a bit closer).

    What happens when you turn the focus ring? Does the image within the viewfinder change at all?

Maybe you're trying to get it to focus on something too close.

Fungus on Rokinon 500mm mirror lens


Do you have a lens collimator and other equipment necessary to ensure proper alignment when reassembling the lens? If not, take it to a good camera shop and have a properly trained and equipped professional do the job.

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

Error 99 on Canon EOS350D


Cannon does not say what error codes above code 02 mean. They only suggest the costumer to make contact with the nearest Canon service centre.
But connecting a non autofocus lens from an other brand, could be something the camera can't cope with. And the most Canon (and other brand) camera's can't focus when a lens has a aperture greater than f/1: 5,6. The f/1: 6,3 or perhaps even f/1: 8 is one or two stops to much for your camera. Special when you try to use this lens in no bright places.

Rokinon 500mm for nikon D5100


The filters go on the back of the lens (the end that connects to the camera). If you detach the lens and look inside, you'll see a threaded ring. Simply screw the filter on, similar to how you put filters on the front end of other lenses.

Due to the great magnification ratio of this lens, you absolutely need to have it on a tripod or other stable support. Even the slightest camera shake will be magnified.

The lens also has very little depth of field, so you must focus precisely. Since you're mounted on a tripod, you might want to activate the LiveView feature and zoom in the subject while you focus.

How to attach filters to a Rokinon 500mm/ 1000mm Mirror Lens for Canon EOS


For the Rokinon 500mm F/6.3 lens, you can either attach 95mm filters to the front or 34mm filters to the rear of the lens.

For the Rokinon 500mm F/8 lens, you can only attach 30.5mm filters to the rear of the lens.

To attach a filter to the rear of the lens, remove the lens from the camera (or take the rear lens cap off). There's a threaded screw mount just inside of where the lens fits onto the camera. Take your filter and screw it into place. Hand tighten until it's snug and doesn't project in the way---remember, you're going to want to take it off again later.

Can i use a vivitar 70-500mm macro focusing zoom lense in my canon DS 6041 ( EOS rebel digital camera)


Quantaray makes lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Nikon mount, for example, will not fit onto a Canon camera. Assuming you have a lens with a Canon mount then yes, you can use it on your Rebel.

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.
