I received the Lens very quickly from Overstock.com and was very pleased with the product. The lens is easy to use even though it is a manual lens. The picture quality using a tripod and and remote switch are great.
I purchased a Rokinon Lens and a tri-pod for a newly purchased Canon Rebel XSI. The merchandise arrived quickly and in good working order. The lens is good quality and a bit slow to focus but as many pictures I take it will be just fine. Overstock is a great place to purchase electronics and photography equipment.....
If you can run your camera on manual and can manually focus then this is an less expensive way to have a 500mm lens. It will take time to learn to use it. Take more than one shot and refocus between shots one of them should come out great.
This lens is exactly as described - nothing more, nothing less. It is very highly magnifying, and thus has a very narrow depth of field. If used for things at a distance, it can produce reasonable results.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is good for what the product is.
Hard to focus and the doubler is useless because of poor quality. The lens negates the excellent quality of Canon T2i. I will never use this lens. My Canon 55-250mm IS telephoto is 10 times better with a doubler.

I purcased this lens for the Canon Rebel XSi. Although the lens has GREAT distance, the focus wasn't there. It is Manual Focus only, no auto focus. And, although I had the viewing hole in focus, my pictures came out a bit blurry. It is a decent lens however, for the price - I would recommend buying the ******
still shooting 2 -3 frames per subject, then forsure a clear pics, really like the close shots, my 2x teleconverter does not have the contacts for my other auto focus lens, a Q to check out if needed.
would recommend over all others at price rating.

The XSi is an EOS camera, and all EOS lenses are interchangeable with all EOS camera bodies.ericmaven on May 18, 2013
Many other manufacturer lenses will fit on a Nikon, however, the auto focus will not work and you must use manual focus. Do you know if this will fit on a Nikon (D3000)?lynnkat on Dec 14, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
We don''t list maximum focusing distances as it is not something we can determine. With lenses, the main feature is the minimum focus distance.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 25, 2012
