Well made and worth the money


from Raymond, MS  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I have used this lens for macro photography, wildlife shots and some astrophotography and if you are comfortable with manual focusing you'll love this lens. Lens does have some creep at steeper angles, but not much at less severe angles. A tripod is helpful for sharper focus at slower shutter speeds. I wish it could have an adjustable aperture, but as this lens is essentially a small catadioptric spotting scope, that's not in the cards. All in all I'm glad I invested in this's portable and highly useful for my needs.
