A review of the Opteka 650-1300mm lens – check it out: http://amzn.to/29TW8OT
This is an inexpensive telephoto lens that can be great for amature photographers looking to experiment with long-range photography. It’s priced somewhere from $200-$300, needs an adapter to mount to your DSLR camera, and comes with a 2x converter which doubles the focal length to 2600mm.
I’ve included some photos I’ve taken with the lens to give you an idea of the zoom capabilities.
