I dont understand why this product doesnt have good reviews, May 12, 2010
By Kenneth J. Littell (Wa. USA)
This review is from: Vivitar 650-1300 f/8-16 Series 1 Variable Telephoto Zoom Lens Kit For Nikon D40, D40x, D50, D60, D80, D90, D200, D300, D700, D3 D3x Digital SLR Cameras (Electronics)
I ordered this lens because I wanted to take photos of wild life near my property.
After ordering it I was alarmed because of the negative reviews I had seen on the web,
Remember, this is not a $3000 lens. It is NOT automatic and you must set the focus manually.
As well, you must know how to operate your digital camera. (get out the instruction book)
I was able to take some pretty wonderful photos only an hour and a half after it arrived.
I would suggest that anyone who wants this type of lens. first be acquainted with the functions of their camera. This lens is not a toy. Definitely NOT point and click. However, if you READ and UNDERSTAND the directons supplied with your camera and the instructions supplied with the lens.... then you will be able to work with this product as advertised.
If you consider it as a challenge and instructional opportunity in photography, rather than a cheap way to make you an expert photographer then you will be well pleased.
