Value for money considering limitations.

  • Summary: Lens has performed better than expected for a unit priced so well. Images are ceystal clear but focusing does prove a little messy. Absolutely necessary to use a monopod or tripod because weight and length of lens makes it impossible to hold steady. A good lens to get started with , auto focus would be a huge advantage. Overall very satisfied.

  • Summary: lente de qualidade, mas é preciso saber usar, pois é tudo manual.. aprexima bastante o objeto a sr fotografado, é necessário o uso de um tripe, pos qualquer movimento a imagem fica fora de foco, recomendo para quem sabe o básico em fotografia

Phoenix 650-1300 telephoto lens.

  • Summary: I wanted a nice long range lens without spending a fortune. this lens fits the bill perfectly. Very well made, solid. My first test pics look great and this is without even learning how to fine tune things yet. I expect to take some really awesome shots of things I can't get close to, wildlife, mountain tops and such with this lens. The price is great, as is the quality and so I would recomend this product if you need to REALLY reach out touch.

  • Summary: PROs -Seriously, even as a "newbie" photographer, I wondered if this lens could work well with my film camera. It did and then some. I just reviewed the film pictures at 650mm, 1300mm to 2600mm with a 2x converter. WOW ! A lot of detail and a lot of lens. It should be in the category of 'telescope'. Have a close up of an office building 1 to 1.5 miles away and I can see the street numbers. I found a hawk at 1/4 mile drying his feathers. CONs - it is so d... heavy.

Impressive looking, Heavy with a lot of glass

  • Summary: I have been in photography for 30 years!weddings,sports,and outdoor photography. Knowing what i paid for this i expected much less! For the price this should be a fast selling lens. It is heavy even when on my Bogen pro tripod. I find that attaching my monopod to the camera body gives me a better look at a far distance.To hand hold it i find myself leaning against a solid object to steady the lens.It is a little hard to adjust and look through the lens at the same time...
