500mm f8 Telephoto lens review – BMPCC

Hopefully this review/overview gives you a better insight into this lens and how it performs before you go out and buy it or if you’re thinking about getting your hands on this lens. Seeing as I’m using this on the BMPCC this is the equivalent of using a 1500mm lens due to the cameras x3 crop factor. So if you do plan to get this lens for the BMPCC you’re really getting a 1500mm.

After using this 500mm f8 lens on the black magic pocket cinema camera for a view days. I was surprised by the sharpness of this lens so I thought I would share my thoughts and opinions about it. Here are these thoughts and opinions…

Thanks for the video! Mind taking a shot of the Moon with it for us? What do you mean about the maximum focal distance? Does that mean it can’t focus on the Moon?
Edit: Also you said you’re getting a 3x crop factor. But doesn’t your speedbooster make it 1.75?
