    Cons: Not sharp Narrow DoF, no possibility to change it Hard to focus, especially at close range Highly sensible to shaking

    Pros: Cheap Long range (up to 1600mm equivalent when used on apsc + 2x multiplier) Exotic

    Summary: Challenging and frustrating, this lens can actually deliver some surprising quality shoots when mastered. Sometimes, yes it happens. As it can be found 2nd hand for 100 or even less, i would not discourage you to get one. Tripod is mandatory

    Cons: Very soft, unsharp lens. I have tested two of them with many shots, using a tripot. This lens has a nice appearance, but the optic results are very bad. Dont by it, It is just a waste of mony.

    Pros: No pros.

    Summary: Worsed lens ever tested.
