Samyang 500mm f/6.3 Ultra-Telephoto Mirror Lens

Hi there,
has anyone got any information on the Samyang 500mm f/6.3 Ultra-Telephoto Mirror Lens. They are low priced & the reviews on you tube, Amazon etc are generally good, but I trust the opinions that you guys have given me in the past. I know that they're low budget, but I don't want to be spending close to a grand.

Regards
Steve

From my experience 95% of people who buy any mirror lens end up not using it,the main problem is the type of Bokeh they give,here is a link to the flickr group see what you think.

Thanks nikonmike,
I've decided to go for a Sigma 150-600 contempory.
Any recomendations as to the best place to purchase one?
