The Opteka 500mm / 1000mm f/8 manual focus preset lens is a classic refractor-style T-mount lens, with an aperture diaphragm in the middle of the lens body to stop down the aperture when necessary. However, it is assumed that much of the shooting with such a lens will be at its maximum f/8.0 aperture, with a tripod, monopod, or other such support. The included 2x doubler converts this 500mm lens into 1000mm.
When combined with the included T-mount to fit your Canon EF camera system (included), this super telephoto works on both “full frame” as well as “APS-C” style digital SLR cameras. You can use the lens in “M” manual exposure mode or “A” aperture-priority mode only. This lens’ sophisticated achromatic refractor design yields images with pleasing peak contrast and well controlled flare. It can be used at maximum aperture on a very bright day for some images of moving subjects.

OPTICS – A super multi-layer coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery.
MANUAL FOCUSING – This lens has an adjustable f-stop ring. An index for distance and diaphragm scale is inscribed on the lens barrel to coordinate distance and aperture.
SOLID CONSTRUCTION – Full metal body and rear t-mount allow this lens to withstand wear and tear much better than plastic lenses while commanding a rugged, solid feel when using.
TRIPOD MOUNT – A built-in, rotating tripod collar offers well-balanced support for photographing atop a tripod or monopod with either vertical or horizontal shooting orientations.
