500mm Lens


This is another Lens that I have in my Collection.  It’s made by Vivitar and it’s a 500mm Lens.  Pictured here mounted on my Pentax K100D with a 2x Double.  The Double Lens increases the Lens to a 1000mm.

I was not happy with the results from the 2x.  Seem’d to blur the Image too much.  I was advised by others that have this not to use it.  Just use the 500mm Lens and you will have better results.  I took the advice and tried it out.  Much better than having the 2x installed.

Again, this is not a Lens to shoot hand held.  It would be very wise to use a Tripod for this kind of Lens.  If you don’t, your Image will be blurry, unless you are that steady.
