    I've got the 500 f/8 reflex and it's a pretty cool lens... It's not going to make you an awesome photographer, but it'll be fun to shoot with.

    If you're shooting with a D300 you can meter with it and set up the custom lens function to assign the f number with it so you always get good exposure.

    That makes sense... spend the extra money for something my camera can already do very efficiently. :squint:

    lol reflective in-camera meters really are junk compared to spot-meters

    I'm aware of the difference.

    I'm not disputing the fact that spot meters are superior.

    I'm simply saying that he's obviously not investing a shit load of money into a long lens, so he's probably not going to invest a bunch more into a meter when his camera can do perfectly fine without one.
