    Opteka (I think that was the brand) any good? I saw on ebay it was like a 400mm-1600mm with 2X converter for 400mm-3200mm for like less than $200. Manual focus but still. Seems like I could really sneak up on some stuff with that kind of range. Opinions?

    You get what you pay for. Ive never tried any of these but $200 could go towards something much better.

    What/who you thinking of sneaking up to?;)

    paper towel tube with some glass in it...

    Probably the worst lens ever made....

    I know someone who had this lens and all of the photos they took with it sucked.

    if you want a cheap solution for a telephoto lens look into sigma, i'm not sure you're camera preferences but they have mounts for most cameras. They have some lenses for $250-300 that will be a lot better than any opteka.
