4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad At All For The Money, 27 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Opteka 650-2600mm High Definition Telephoto Lens for Nikon D7000, D5000, D3100, D3000, D700, D300, D200, D100, D90, D80, D70, D60, D50, D40, D40X, D2HS, D2XS, & D3 Digital SLR Camera's (Electronics)
I purchased this lens because I'm only a keen amateur and didn't want to spend thousands on a Nikon telephoto.
The only problems I have with this lens is the caps are too loose and fall off at will, as for the pictures I've taken so far so good.
First night I received the lens it was a half moon fully lit on a frosty night, and it brought up all the pimples on the man in the moons face very clearly. Next I took up on the local hill and tried it on somethings I knew the distance of, and it worked very well. Next I took it out for a spot of wild life shooting, and sod's law there was only a cormorant about, but I got a good shot of it taking off the water.
Now all of these were shot off a tripod and that was something I had up grade the next day, as it is a fairly heavy lens.
On the whole I'm very happy with this item.
Delivery was before time, and well wrapped.
And my only gripe, the lens caps, well a bit of stick on Velcro fixed that problem.
Now the only thing left to try is when the motorcycle racing starts at Oulton Park, how good it is in that field.
Hope this is helpful--Digs--
PS I'm using this on a D300.

Your review was very helpful as I am looking to purchase this lens, however, I am very interested in how you got on when the race season started with this lens as this is exactly what I will be using it for?

Thank you

Sorry can't help with the racing at the mo, work commitments have taken over and I've only managed one day out with my camera, and that was the zoo.

I also found your review very helpful. Are you still happy with the product?
I would like to buy one for the same reasons as you, i.e. I'm very much an amateur and don't want to spend thousands, but just need reassurance as to the product's quality.
