For the price, this is almost a steal. The only problem that I find is that the focus is "soft," which I understand is true for all mirror lenses. But I have been able to photograph images quite a distance away and to see things in the background that I did not know were there. This can be extreemely helpful at times.
The lense is everything I expected. It takes good pics for the value although you cannot compare it to an L series lense from Cannon or Nikon but it is what I expected for the value. A good deal none the less and am pleased. They take a little more work than a normal lense but it gets me close to the subject like never before.
This item was purchased to use with a Nikon D3100. It will work on this item, but it was a bit hard to navigate. Since it is not the official "Nikon" brand, it will not work on the automatic settings and everything must be done on the manual mode. A more experience photographer may not have any issues with this, however, my son is a teenager and this is his first SLR camera. Due to his inexperience, this lens was too difficult to use and that is why we had to return it. I had searched a number of different sources for this lens and found O.CO to be the cheapest. Returning the item was easy, however it was at my expense. Although difficulty with the use of the item, this was a smooth, hassle free transaction.
