    Default Bower 500mm mirror lens

    Just got one from London Drugs for $229.00. Image quality seems good. I have a Sigma 150-500mm and it's not something you just throw in your bag unless you think you're gonna use it due to the weight. The little Bower however is light enough that it can ride along without too much grief. It has a fixed 6.3 aperture and is manual focus but if you can see past those issues, it's a pretty handy little item ho have along when you need a 750mm (with cropped sensor) reach. I'll get some pics up as soon as I take it out for a real spin

    Looking forward to seeing photos from that, because I've heard good things, and bad things about that lens.
