Mirror lenses are great if you want a compact, affordable, lightweight telephoto lens, but most of them are t mount (telescope), but the MC Rubinar 1000mm f/10 Macro, MC Rubinar 500mm f/8 Macro, MC Rubinar 500mm f/5.6 Macro, and MC Rubinar 300mm f/4.5 Macro are M42 mount. They also have donut bokeh that can be busy. I was into mirror lenses for a while and wrote a review about an affordable one here that is extremely compact and it comes with an X mount. The 1000mm should be about $800 based on shvabe.

The range includes lenses with focal lengths of 300, 500 and 1000 mm, which are suitable for creative and astronomical photography. The developers of Shvabe Holding have updated the design and improved technical characteristics.
MC Rubinar 10/1000 Macro, MC Rubinar 8/500 Macro, MC Rubinar 5.6 / 500 Macro and MC Rubinar 4.5 / 300 Macro went on sale. The new versions of these devices received a redesigned hood, improved matte inner surfaces and anti-reflective coating – which is especially important for digital photography.

The metal body is not made from a pipe, but is milled from a workpiece. This solution provided a higher manufacturing accuracy ad stability of the optical circuit during operation. At the Shvabe Lytkarinsky Optical Glass Plant (LZOS), which developed the products, they note: at the moment, Rubinar is the only serial mirrored lens in Russia with such characteristics.

“In the new look, lenses have become more modern and acquired a number of advantages. So, creative people will love the ring bokeh and macro mode. At the same time, our specialists have retained the M42 mounting thread for greater unification with all existing bayonets through simple and inexpensive adapters. At present, the first batch has been manufactured, ”said Alexander Ignatov, General Director of LZOS .

For astrophotography lovers, the LZOS developers offer an additional service for adjusting the lens “MC Rubinar 10/1000 Macro”. This model is suitable for photographing the surface of the moon, stars and planets of the solar system.
