    Hot how is it at a distance......... I have seen those on e-bay but honestly you are the first person I have seen who likes them. Most seem disappointed with their results. I have to admit those pics look good but your pic's always do.

    @Lonnie
    mount is T2 - you get T2 adapters for ALL cameras - price of my Canon adapter was $4.60 incl.ship. from China. T2 for NEX is $7.49, ...
    For me T2-Canon is enough, because I have Canon adapters for m4/3, NEX, NX ..
    With three little screws you can adjust "up" for your camera with a small allen wrench. Necessary only once.

    @Jim
    it's best if you use a tripod, focussing must be very accurate - no problem with NEX and others.

    I have since > 20 years a Makinon 500mm/f=8, but with KonicaAR mount - usable with mirrorless cameras, but not with DSLRs (like my Canons). T2 mount you can use with ALL cameras. Even with 2x converter for €25-€40 - sure not best quality - and you get 1000mm.

    Reading amazon.de there are few diappointed people (what do they await from a $100 lens?) but most are delighted, found reality better than bad rumors.

    I think Samyang (my lens is "Walimex pro") is available as Rokinon, Opteka, Vivitar and so on.
    I bought if from amazon.de for € 88.90 ... then each day it was more expensive, one week later € 161



    500mm/6.3 - of course few depth of sharpness ... but with NEX7 NO PROBLEM

    It is pleasant to use a tripod, but a tripod even moves in light wind, flowers also move.
    You must choose focus very precisely, depth of field is very small - it's easy with NEX5 or NEX7

    nice Hot, I think I may be convinced to getting one of these amazing lens. Do you have any links to full resolution shots taken using the Samyang 500 with with nex7?

    Would love to see the full IQ of this lens

    3 photos, original, from yesterday.
    distance ~ 5 meters, light tripod, windy.

    Zippyshare.com - NEX7_Sam500.rar <------

    Samyang 500mm/6.3 has T2 mount. I use T2-NEX adapter ... or WITH tripod mount a combination T2-EOS + EOS-NEX (with tripod mount).

    thanks for the shots Hot, excellent shots, although when you zoom in 1:1 all that clarity disappears. It seems this lens is a soft focus lens? Guess you cannot expect too much considering the price of the lens

    Of course you cannot await extrem sharpness from a lens for 88.90 - but photos are

    1) 6000x3376
    2) only a small tripod (better than freehand, hehe)
    3) it was windy (tripod moves, flower moves)
    4) very small depth of field
    5) mirror lens

    For viewing 1920x1080 - or printing - it is enough :-)

    nice accessories for your Samyang Hot, the filters and hood takes a big percentage of the cost of the lens lol

    NEX7 + Samyang500

    I went out and took a short movie "moon & clouds" - 2 minutes, 72 MB.
    Original 1920x1080/50fps/MTS, reduced to 1280x720/50fps/MP4, no sound.
