Pros: Good resolution, Lightweight, easy to maneuver even without stand. Robust and easy maintenance. Simple but reliable construction. Very cheap price in relation to the quality

Cons: Lack of tripod attachment but not so serious for the Pro listed earlier. With M42 adapter with tripod attachment ... no problem.

Opinion: After a primary mirror setup work that was too pressed by a metallic sealing ring, the telephoto lens became great. Before she was suffering from a deformation of the glass she did not allow it to give a sharp image. Testing showed a different focus on two orthogonal planes. A frequent problem with the Russian mirrors (500 and 1100 MTO) as the workers tighten the rings too much. It has a depth 'minimal field, like all catadioptric, but you just get used and find ways to make good photos. Complete with filters and purse, but without hood. Great in cases where photography can not be approached. Inserting extension rings can be used at less than 4 meters distance and with greater magnification.

Pros: Price; quality with good light; there are adapters with tripod mount.

Cons: Difficulty of maf; reduced pdc; particular bokeh.

Opinion: Bought on ebay a few tens of euro when I had not yet canvas for the m43. I struggled at first, but it gave me some satisfaction that I could not take off. Difficult to manage, until you understand, 9 photos out of 10 are to be thrown; later, however, it is so much power. In post production, especially over long distances, we need to recover contrast and sharpening, but we discover details that were not expected to appear in the photo.rn

Pros: compact, reliable construction, easy handling in focus, affordable cost.

Cons: difficulty in focusing, blur / shake-bokeh "donut".

Opinion: Despite the difficulties in dealing with this in mind, and the many wasted shots to take my hand, I'm still satisfied with the possibilities it offers. In particular, the extremely shallow depth of field is used to stratify the plans of the composition and give depth. Sure, it's not a choice, and a short distance is a nightmare, but you have to adapt. At low exposure darken the corners a lot, so much so that it is preferable to crop DX format. The dynamic contrast is not much, but in sunny conditions is fully adequate. Overall demanding a perspective that leads to finding unexpected solutions.

Pros: Very cheap, rugged construction, compact, good performance

Cons: Lack of support for tripod and lens hood

Opinion: You have to make an introduction, during assembly is tightened too the primary mirror, so they perform poorly, my eg "sdoppiava" the focused image, after unlocking, the performance greatly improves, and you realize that the quality is equivalent to similar goals but of higher price, compared to other "ed" has the advantage of being slightly longer but narrower, making him enter fine in a normal camera bag ..
