I was given an Ensinor 500mm f/8 mirror lens, I bought a M42 to EOS adaptor so I could use it with my Canon EOS camera.
I was struggling to focus, not sure if its because it isn't the sharpest lens, or if I was just bad at focusing. I'm assuming it is just because it isn't the sharpest lens though.
It's amazing how close I get to things with this lens, with my normal lenses I would have just walked away from the opurtunity of filming these dragonflies.

Great test, it would be sweet to see a rack focus on some of the shots

Thanks Nick!

I did a rack focus on one of my first attempt sat using the lens, becuase of it being such a long lens, there is noticeable camera shake when I focus
