ADVANCED OPTICS: Featuring an optimized design, this lens uses mirrors and a series of 7 optical glass elements in 6 groups to reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations. A anti-reflective coating suppresses lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color fidelity.
SUPER ZOOM: Manual focus 500mm, this lens is not only a superb long range choice, but also performs well in a variety of scenes from sports and surveillance to everyday shooting.
SOLID CONSTRUCTION: Full metal body and rear mount allow this lens to withstand wear and tear much better than plastic lenses while commanding a rugged, solid feel when using.
COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT: Mirrors allows this lens to be much shorter than it would need to be without the mirrors. At 4.7-inches long, this 500mm f/6.3 is one of the shortest telephoto lenses currently available.
