About Vivitar 500mm F/6.3

The Vivitar 500 mm f/6.3 Mirror Lens is an incredibly compact and lightweight ultra telephoto. Using an advanced reflex design, its compact size provides superior lightweight handling and maximizes storage convenience. It produces smooth highlights in out of focus areas, which many photographers prize. The minimum focus distance of 6.1 feet allows you to use a faster shutter speed than most lenses of this type. The Super Spectra Coatings assure virtually flare-free photographs even under adverse lighting conditions. A simple T-mount adapter makes this lens work with both film and digital SLR cameras.

Not So Good


from Huntington Beach, Ca  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought this lens to go with my Canon Rebel. Wanted a little more reach than the 75-300mm that came with my camera. Vivitar is a name brand that I have used for years. I'm currently using a Vivitar 2X teleconverter and a .43X macro with my camera right now. Good products. This is why I purchased a Vivitar lens over other brands of similar size and price. Always satisfied with the quality of their products up until now. I easily shot over 200 pictures with this lens and never could get any in sharp focus. Plus the images were dull. Tried shooting everything from plant and tree leaves up close to craters on the moon. I have never had a lens with such a touchy focusing ring as what this has. Moving the focusing ring less than a millimeter one way or the other takes this out of the sharpest focus you can achieve. Unfortunately I had to return the product. After 40 years of photography and countless purchases on lenses, gizmos and gadgets, this was a first time for me.
