Opteka 650-1300mm f/8-16 High Definition Telephoto User Reviews
What a lens! I love it! Does the job and more
“This lens is the answer to my search. It was hard to find an inexpensive lens that can help in taking great shots of wildlife and nature. The results are really good. I think that this store is likely going to sell out of these pretty quickly! Best thing about it is there are filter threads so you can purchase filters for it. I recommend getting a skylight filter for lens protection. “ – by Photo Expert
You get what you Pay For
“Have had this lens for eight months, requires extreme patience and must be Tripod mounted. Needs a fluid tripod head for best result. With 20D no apperature control and manual focus. Shutter speed and ISO speed sets the exposure. Do not like that the lens “bends” in the middle where the zoom tube meets the body at full extention. OK for “hobby fun”, not for quality. If you can afford it for “fun”, enjoy. “ – by Bud Heath
Take your time, use a tripod…save thousands and thousands
“Overall I was amazed at the build quality and the optics quality in the lens for the money, it is every bit as solid as any of my Canon or Sigma lenses, and the glass isn’t the same quality but well enough in the ball park to make it more than worth the money.I do think its too bulky and slow for sport photography, but for astral and nature work, do your self a favor and save your self about 10 grand!Plus if you really want to get crazy you could use it with a 2X multiplyer like I do! 2600mm!! Can you say telescope!! Thanks for your time and happy shooting “ – by Sinister Minister
Big lens with a big zoom
“This lens produces very sharp pictures only if you have your camera on a tripod. With all lenses, the more zoom, the less area of view. Do not think you will be holding this lens in your hands shooting. This lens needs light. It works great outdoors. I have taken many shots of birds, houses, trees, ect). Overall, it is the only lens under $600 that can zoom as far as it can. You just need to understand want it can and cannot do. I am happy with it. “ – by W. Mattia
