Mirror lenses generally have fixed apertures and poor image quality. While glass is usually your best investment, it has to be decent glass to matter.

No, unless you buy a mirror lens from back in the day. Certain Minolta, Olympus, and Zeiss models were good. But those fall well outside a $200 budget and can't be found on Amazon.

What you will find on Amazon are super-cheap Samyang models sold under various brands. These are not very good.

Okay? That's f4-5.6, but whatever. The 70-200 family outclasses that lens. Weren't you just saying a few posts ago that you were getting a "IS USM 70-200"?

indeed I am. The 55-250 for some reason feels rather cheap and plasticy.

So why the confusion? Put the Amazon credit towards a 70-200. Or is it already bought?

Let me sum this page up...

New guy spews random bull**** about his gear that he has, then pretends to have bought better gear.

Nobody cares.

Skip discusses his days in BJJ while displaying animosity to all of the BJ's that caused him to blow out his knee.

The end.

I love how he came and asked about mirror lenses AFTER he bought the stupid thing. As if maybe he stumbled upon some secret that no one knew. If mirror lenses were any good, we'd all be shooting with those! It's not like we threw our money at "real" lenses for no ****ing reason

Hmm. I might have to take that up too. I wrestled through high school and have been trying to get back into something, but haven't found anything yet.
