    They don't mention the aperture of the lens. I'd guess that it's not adjustable and probably a fixed F11 or F16...maybe F8 at the best. Then you add on the 2X TC and it looses a couple of stops. So considering you would need a shutter speed of 1/3000 for hand held shooting...that would be darn near impossible with an aperture of F16 etc.

    So it would need to be used on a tripod...and even then, the slightest movement would introduce a large amount of blur.

    Then consider the cheap quality of the glass (you get what you pay for, after all)...the images probably look like crap.

    It's starting to sound like it's overpriced to me :lol:

    shame that the photo makes it look pencil sized - one could look really impressive wandering round with a huge lens like that ;)

    I've been seeing a lot of Opteka lenses hitting the market lately, Amazon, E-bay and many more......but not on B&H.....that tells me what I need to know
