The long focal length. Mirror lens, so it's shorter than it's refractive counterparts for it's FL. 


Not as sharp. My 300mm gets 80% of the detail this one does. 

Bokeh is decent, but typical mirror lens doughnut bokeh.


Got it from my dad, who got it 20 years ago from a photographer. A nice novelty piece for certain photographs. 

Gave it 5 stars on bokeh by mistake. I'd wanted to give it 3/4,  since despite the doughnut bokeh that most people don't like, I personally found it while underwhelming, not bad for most cases.
