  • Great "no frills" lens for the money
    Verified Purchase

    Outstanding lens for the money. Let me clarify, this is an outstanding lens if you know how to use it. Everything is manual and you need to take some time to learn to use it properly. First, it is a very slow lens (F/16 at 1300mm or F/32 with the teleconverter. Given that Canon's equivalent focal length all automatic F/5.4 lens is custom built for $99,000, this lens is a steal. But you do need lots of light and/or a sturdy tripod. Biggest drawback (besides the aperture limitations) is that the lens tube is somewhat flimsy at the longer zooms. I felt it could be a bit sturdier and this is why I give it a 4. There is also a bit of chromatic abberation at long zooms in bright sunlight. Still I was able to see and photograph Saturn's rings at 2600mm ( I wish I could post the photo here). Moon photos are amazing and, with a solar filter, you can see and photograph sun spots. I am extremely happy with this lens.

  • Rokinon for canon 650-2600
    Verified Purchase

    I'm giving this three stars, for the money, it is worth it. Afterall, if you purchase a name brand lens, they are far more expensive. I don't care for the paper that calls itself a manual. It takes some time to figure out how to properly use the lens and I could not find much support on the internet. I would recommend it to someone that knows a bit about photography, but with practice this lens takes great pictures. You will need a heavy duty tripod to support the lens, all low light photography will require one.

    this lens is just what my husband wanted and for the price we are so happy this lens was a fathers day gift, the only issue that we have is that it is really heavy but with a tripod it will allows us to be in the stands of our sons football games and still be right in the action.

  • Focus

    I wasn't able to get a clear focus @ 2600 mm even with a large tripod - but maybe it's just my skills.

  • Awesome
    Verified Purchase

    Took some pictures of the Moon the other night and was able to get a real close up view. I couldn't fit the whole moon in the lens at 2600 mm. Quality of the picture was just outstanding. Would recommend this lens to anyone looking for a cheap but hig quality lens.

  • good long range lense
    Verified Purchase

    this is a good product but must be used on a tripod with a remote control. If you touch any part of it while taking a picture it will blur. but as long as you stay clear while taking the picture it takes very clear and precises pictures. due to its accuracy it is very vulnerable to the touch or any movement.

  • vary bad optics
    Verified Purchase

    This lens is made of inferior materials. The outer body tube is thin, and the push-pull zoom tube is not heavy enough to hold a full size camera. My Canon 5D3 actually hangs off centerline when the lens is supported by its tripod mount. As far as optically, the f8-16 anf f16-32 aperture combined with the low quality optics creates a horrible chromatic abbheration across the entire picture surface. The entire photo has a grey foggy appearance. over 50 pictures taken at a variety of different settings all resulted in the same fog. I also had a problem with vibration. the lens is so sensitive that I could actually see my building vibrating when I pulled it all the way out to 2600mm. So yeah, no, this lens is extremely poor quality and I have already returned it.

  • Good value for money
    Verified Purchase

    The lens is cheap and that is what you get. It is however value for money - you get a massive zoom lens for a very affordable price. The bottom line is that it is not a Canon quality lens but you don't pay the price of a Canon quality lens. Overall I am very happy with the product, it does what I expected for the price I paid.

  • Decent for what you pay for.
    Verified Purchase

    For the price I paid, I enjoy it very much. It's so heavy that I need two tripods to keep it steady to get a clear picture, one on the lense and one to rest my camera on. I love that I can zoom in very close to something, I've taken some awesome full moon shots with it.

    Got my money's worth. I mainly want to use this lens for moon photos and very distant viewing and picture taking. I used it a few times. It does take a little getting used to but eventually will get accustom to it as with anything else. Photos are excellent. This lens is worth the money spent. It's not auto focus but that just adds more fun to my hobby. Delivery was fast!!!!

  • junk?
    Verified Purchase

    I purchased this item and upon using it for the first time I was extremely disapointed. It was user friendly and easy to understand as there are only three pieces. However after uploading my photos they were either non viewable or so light that we were unable to make out the picture at all. Very strange since it was a shot taken at dusk. It's possible that this lens in particular is defective, I will find out after they exchange it for me and if that's the case i will update this review. The view through the lens was fine and they would have been fabulous photos if they had turned out. I tried two other lens' just to make sure it wasn't my camera and it wasn't. They both worked perfect. I hope this was just a fluke because I really like this lens and think it was a good price to pay for it.

  • Tricky to use
    Verified Purchase

    Since it's manual focus and a combination of push/pull zoom with twist focus, it's tricky to use. Highly recommend using on a high end tripod since cheap ones just won't be sturdy enough.

  • Not worth at any price
    Verified Purchase

    Most of my problem with it has to do with the quality of construction. It is extremely hard to aim and focus. Even with a sturdy tripod it is supper difficult to aim. The lens itself flexes when extended so when you sight in your subject and let go of the camera the subject is no longer in view. also the slide (zoom) is very rough and does not adjust very smooth, again making it hard to dial in on what you are looking at. I found it so difficult to use that I sent it back, and that was just trying it out on a stationary ( a mountain top) object, let alone something (wildlife) that may move even so slightly.
