The RMC Tokina 500mm 1:8 (or Tokina TM 500) is a tele lens with mirror optics and fixed aperture f8. It is focusable from 1.5 metres to infinity. As item of Tokina's RMC lens series it was made in variants for different lens mounts of renowned SLR makers. It was delivered with a set of filters which can be mounted into its back. And it has a metal hood that is nearly as long as the lens and can be screwed upon the lens to avoid reflections. It can also be screwed reversely upon the lens so that it protects the lens barrel. The mirror optics lens may give a characteristic ring bokeh when unsharp image areas are rich of contrasts.
