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.

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

Installing the Rokinon 500mm/1000mm f/8.0 Mirror Lens for Nikon

This lens does not have the electronics to communicate with the camera. You have to use the camera on the Manual exposure mode (turn the mode dial to M) and set the aperture and shutter speed yourself. You will not get any metering help from the camera's light meter, but you can use the histogram to fine-tune your exposure. You also have to focus the camera manually.

You'll want to use a tripod or other support, as the lens will magnify every bit of camera shake.

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.

Look inside the back end of the lens (the end which attaches to the camera). You'll see a threaded ring around the optical part. The filter simply screws onto the threaded ring.

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.
