The 500/8 Reflex is a catadioptric lens - the secondary mirror on the back of the front element group gives it a ring-shaped aperture, which shows up on OOF specular highlights.


Some people seem to think this is a bad thing...

I used one of those back in high school (1987-89) when I was shooting film. You could do lots of fun things with those OOF circles.

Nice shot.
