Much better than expected
, 6 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Opteka 650-1300mm (with 2x- 1300-2600mm) Telephoto Zoom Lens for Nikon D5, D4, D810, D800, D750, D700, D610, D600, D300, D7200, D7100, D5500, D5300, D5200, D5100, D3300 and D3200 Digital SLR Cameras (Electronics)
I brought this lens more for the phenomenal focal range I was promised.
I'm happy to say I was not disappointed.
I can easily fill the frame with structures roughly a mile away, and have no problem capturing birds in trees. The tele-converter is good too. Granted, this lens does not take the most amazing quality images, and I haven't had the privelage to try a Nikon or Canon lens of the same range to compare it to. Regardless, for the price, I strongly recommend this lens for anyone who is interested in truly EPIC zoom...
I've yet to try the lens out on stars and planets, but I'm assured it will perform just fine. :3
I'm definitely going to be buying things from Opteka again. ;D
(P.S: I have a Nikon D5100, and seeing as though it's not listed in the camera compatibilities in the title, I thought I'd just let you know it fits fine :3)
