    Hello all. I just got a Rokinon 800mm lens for my Sony Alpha 65. Unfortunately, the lens uses a different mount. Anyone know what kind of adaptor I need? I know my Sony camera has an A-mount, not sure what mount the lens has. Also, where can I get an adaptor? Thanks!

    You will have to identify the mount. Rokinon manufacture that mirror-lens in a wide variety of mounts.

    Also you did know it was a mirror lens before you bought and understand what this means for image quality, especially the out-of-focus areas of your images?

    Got it working. It came with a T-mount adaptor that worked great with my camera. I'll have to manually focus, but that's fine with me.

    As for being a mirror based lens, I don't mind. I don't plan on using it that much, plus it still looks pretty good in my opinion.

    From my understanding, most reflex and telescope lenses are T-mount, and there are T-mount adapters for every and any obscure SLR mount out there.
    Pretty cheap, too, considering that it doesn't need any optical correction.
