Up until recently the Korean firm Samyang has been known for its cheap manual long- focus lenses
containing both lenses and mirrors. These lenses come with a T-mount thread which can be connected to any reflex camera by using the appropriate link. Samyangs telephoto lenses have been offered at temptingly low prices thanks to the optical simplicity of their instruments, which
reminds me more of refractors and Maksutov telescopes designed for astronomy enthusiasts than of photographic lenses.
