    What do you want to do with it?

    Manual focus lenses are cheaper than auto focus. Faster lenses, like a 50mm f1.2 is more expensive than say one in something like f2.8 (if they even make that).

    Wide angles and telephotos are more expensive than standard lenses as well.

    I wouldn't waste money on that 800-1200. Its made to look like something its not. It has an extension tube you put on it to get up to the 1200mm focal length and I think its got some rediculous f stop rating. its very limited to the type of lighting and exposure range you can use it at. Its a cheap lense trying to look like an expensive lens. I know there was another lens with a high focal length being sold that was basically a small telescope you could mount on a camera which means it was a tube with a mirror practicallly no optics.
