FOR
500mm MIRROR LENS
THE MIRROR LENS
Compared with refractive lens system, the unique design of the MIRROR LENS gives superior optical
performance.
It is a compound catadioptric lens system which encompasses a 500mm focal length optical
path in a barrel only 7-1 / 4" long.
This perfect optical arrangement eliminates chromatic aberration and
gives a well-corrected, sharp image over the entire negative or slide.
The MIRROR LENS is id eal for sports and nature photography, especi ally when hand-held shooting is
required.
Distance settings range from 10 feet to infinity.
" T ' system ca mera adapters are available for using the MIRROR LENS with most popular 35mm single
lens reflex ca meras. Screw the appropriate "T ' adapter onto the rear of the lens and mouht the lens to
the camera body in the us ual manner.
Tripod mount allows lens to be held by camera.
Use of "T"
Adapters dose not alter focal distance of lens.
LENS SPEED AND DIAPHRAGM
The MIRROR LENS has a fixed apertur e of f/8 as this particular lens system dose not require a vari able diaphragm .
Exposure is determined by the proper combination of shutter speed and built-in filt ers.
Aperture with no filter is f/ 8.

SKYLIGHT FILTER AND LENS HOOD
A skylight filter can be mounted onto the rear of the lens before mounting " T' system adapter.
The front
of the lens is threaded to accept a 77mm lens hood especially made for the MIRROR LENS.
FOCUSING
Focusing can be done correctly only with the ground glass portion of the focusing screen, since rangefinder
prisms and microgrid screens shadow out with long or slow lenses.
requires particular care in focusing.

No focus compensation is required when using infrared film with the
MIRROR LENS because of its catadioptric design.
CAUTION
This is a precision optical instrument and should be handled with care.
Follow accepted procedures when cleaning lens to avoid scratchig optical coating.
