Manual Focus Zoom Super Telephoto Lens

Phoenix Zoom Super Telephoto 650-1300mm f/8-16 Manual Focus LensThis extreme zoom lens is the economical way to do extreme telephoto photography, up to 1300mm. The lens features a 650-1300mm zoom range, and has only one effective aperture at any focal length, which is variable from f/8 at 650mm to f/16 at 1300mm.

Note! This lens features a T-mount, and requires an appropriate T-mount camera adapter for your specific camera model

It will work on both "full frame" digital cameras as well as the smaller-format APS-C (15 x 22mm) cameras, but has only one effective aperture at any focal length, which varies from f/8.0 at 650mm to f/16.0 at 1300mm. That's not much of a hindrance, however, as you'd likely use this lens at its relatively small maximum aperture in any case.

Features

Incredible zoom range
Multi-coated elements for reduced flare and increased light transmission

Reviews
Fun lens, but not the best quality, September 8, 2008

By Warren Liick (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Canada)

A fun lens for the price. It takes a very steady tripod to shoot with this focal length as the smallest vibration becomes a large shake at the end of the lens. I cant see it getting much use in my lens arsenal, but if you need to zoom way, way out, it can read license plates from many blocks away. Dont buy it as your only telephoto, but if you know that you are getting what you pay for, its not a bad lens.
