    User profile: Semipro

    Cons: Manual focusing can be difficult. I have trouble getting it just right. Hand holding almost impossible. I now only use it on a tripod.

    Pros: Great magnification on DX sensor, resulting in a 750MM lens. Reasonable weight.

    Summary: Good for the price. Optical quality is decent, not great. A tripod must be used for sharp photos. I'd like it much more if it was autofocusing.
