    Please state the exact make and model number.

    Not quite sure why you need a manual anyway, mirror lenses usually only have a focus ring and a fixed, non-adjustable, aperture. You just pop the lens on the front of your camera body, set the body according to the cameras instructions, focus and shoot.

Please state the exact make and version of your 500mm mirror lens. You've incorrectly listed it under "Olympus lens converters", so as you've made one minor error already I cannot be certain that you haven't made another.

Note that there really isn't any need for instructions on most mirror lenses. Apart from a few rare exceptions they have a fixed aperture and a single manual focus control and that's it. Some take huge and expensive front-mounted filters, others take smaller rear-mounted filters which slot in, and as they're usually manufacturer specific are about as common as rocking-horse dung.

Mirror lenses are far rarer these days, as you can achieve the same angle of view using smaller and more compact conventionally constructed lenses due to most SLRs having smaller image sensors. An Olympus Four Thirds model gets the same angle of view with a 250mm focal length lens, and most other dSLR models achieve it with around a 300mm lens due to crop factors of smaller image sensors.

If you still want additional information on your lens, then add a comment with the missing lens data and I'll try to provide further assistance.

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

How to clean the fungus off a Mirror on the inside of a 500mm Mirror lens


Unless you have a lens collimator and other gear needed to make sure you get the lens and mirrors aligned properly when you put it back together, don't even think about taking it apart. Take it to a reputable camera shop and have a trained professional do it.

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.

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.

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.

Soligor mirror 500 on Nikon D-80 ????


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.

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.

HOW TO SET UP CAMERA WITH 500MM LENS


Hey SHUTTER HEAD,
Without knowing what camera you have I would set your camera's aperture to f/8. I would have your camera mode set to either aperture priority or manual, and leave the aperture on the camera set to f/8.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
