Not yet amazed, but will keep trying

South TX Gal, B&H Photo
8 December 2010
  • Excerpt: I mounted the lens on my 25x camcorder and set about filming deer at anywhere from 100 to 300 yards in early morning and late afternoon, sunny, conditions. None of my shots with the lens on were what I would call exceptional; none were as sharp and clear as I'd hoped. If I filmed animals that were too close - within 100 yards - I got a lot of purple fringing and blurry shots.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Fringing if too close

  • Summary: I bought this one for my sony Handycam. It did well and could allow you to capture the image and video far away. Highly recommendation.

  • Summary: The lens works well, comes with a carrying pouch, and isn't too heavy. As expected, if you are close to your subject, you'll loose some of the photo on the outer edges unless you take the lens off. Fairly expensive, but a good deal.

  • Summary: Hola Yo compre este producto en AndorraFreeMArket , y la verdad que me ha ido Genial,. en 48 horas lo tenia en casa, es original, y funciona excelente el teleobjetivo., Lo hemos probado y es una pasada, te acercas a las cosas que estan super lejos con muchas nitidez, Yo lo recomiendo, porque cuando quieres ver cosas que estan muy lejos es genial Pesa un poco pero para ser un teleobjetivo lo normal, es super facil de montar, lo acoplas a la camara en segundos, lo unico...
  • Pros: Es un pasada, te acercas a lo que te da la gana en pocos segundos
