Why do you say this? in this comparison the 1000/11 reflex does a lot better than the 1000/8 lens.. It is 1 stop slower, but with better aberrations control and not as heavy..

It’s a reflex lens which says enough. If you like doughnut shapes in your pictures, then go for it. Mirror lenses are just a cheaper telephoto option that are less than stellar optically. Not that the K1000/8 is a master piece, but it will be a better lens overall. These reflex lenses also don’t have an aperture ring, which makes it unusable in my books.
