Samyang 8mm Fisheye F2.8 Manual Focus Lens for Fuj&hellip by Samyang
4.0 out of 5 stars Very Sharp, 14 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Extremely nice focus mechanism - manual only, but the ring is very smooth and controllable, if a little on the firm side. Aperture ring (also manual) has half-stop incements from f/2.8 up to f/22. Achievable depth of field is monstrous, as you'd expect. Lens is very sharp edge to edge - everything you could hope for with a lens at this price point. The only question remains - how much do you really need a fisheye lens?
NOCO G1100UK Genius Smart Battery Charger by NOCO
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Charger, 14 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very easy to use, and suitable for both 12v and 6v batteries (not 24v). Connectors and charger body are water resistant (but not proof) and it gives a good indication of charge level. Robustly made and with an intuitive control interface. Battery charge clips suit most types of battery from small alarm batteries to large car batteries. Also provided with 'eye' terminals in case you have screw terminals on your battery. Nothing bad to say about it.

Great implement - hard to fault. This is just what I needed to help me dig 26 holes for planting trees in soil full of flint rocks the size of your fist. I also had a row of small trees to uproot. This thing went through them like a dose of salts. A heck of a lot easier than using a pick, a spade or a fork. Stick it in under the roots and lever them straight out of the ground. Really unbeatable. It smashes through anything effortlessly. It's a beast. So much more accurate than swinging a pick axe, and allows you to dig deep, narrow holes and keep the sides perfectly vertical. Go around the outside of the hole and lever in towards the centre then use it to lever the soil loose in the centre… Read more
