About Bower 500mm F/6.3



Bower T-Mount 500mm f/6.3 Mirror Lens with Case, Requires T-Mount
The Bower T-Mount 500mm f/6.3 Mirror Lens with Case is a catadioptric mirror T-mount lens. When combined with the T-mount to fit your camera system, this mirror lens mounts to camera and works on both "35mm/Full Frame Sensors" as well as the "APS-C" style digital SLR cameras. T-Mounts are available for all the digital SLR systems, as well as for C-mount systems. However, in every case the fixed f/6.3 aperture is not communicated to the camera body. As such, you can use the lens in "M" manual exposure mode or "A" aperture-priority mode only. This telephoto lens has a broad diameter and stocky build, making it easier to handle than a normal refractor lens. A White lens barrel helps prevent heat retention. It also has a much different rendering of out of focus areas than a normal lens, where highlights will be doughnut-shaped rings with more saturation and contrast on the edge of the ring than on the center. This T-Mount 500mm mirror lens is offered with free shipping, in new condition only!
