I have had this lens now about 3 weeks and I must say for the money paid it is an amazing value. The problem though is you WILL get frustrated until you unlock all the rules on how to use it. Would I buy it again YES. I am using this lens with a Canon T3I. As well I bought the Rokinon 2x lens attachment to boost the max to 2600mm. This past week we went through a full moon cycle. I bought this lens with moon photography one of my uses. Key parameters to get a great moonshot: don't both shooting if there are ANY CLOUDS. The unit MUST be on a heavy duty tripod and you must use a remote to your camera. There is no anti shake so any shaking causes a blurry picture. Make sure you have a tripod with a head that can shoot 360 degrees around and 90 degrees up. My biggest challenge was getting perfect focus. I also recommended that you use a laptop with this lens where you can monitor your shots on a much bigger screen and fortunately Canon has a set of utilities to control the camera from a laptop via USB port connection. Here are the best settings I have found so far to get a decent moon shot with craters clearly visible: F11, 1/640 sec, ISO 1600. Lastly the camera plus lens adds up to almost 9 pounds of weight. This is not something for a casual walk. You have to pre-plan your uses of this lens. As I reflect on this purchase I have learned a ton about photography and I feel good about that. Maybe this lens is more toy than real photography equipment though. With this said I recommend getting it as the real telephoto super zoom photography lens is several thousand dollars not a few hundred.

I've just bough this week that lens and I've been testing it for a couple of days. I was hesiting to buy it for weeks, I mean +/- 250$? Why those Canon Lens arr waayyy much expensive then?
Well you got no auto feature, so you have to well understand basic of photography ( iso, f/ shutter speed ) and everything will go alright. It's good if you just started and want to sharpen your skill. If you like a minimum of the challenge that bring manuel mode, then you will love it. Take great photos, all aluminium alloy housing, good looking.

I took picture of jupiter yesterday and i was able to make it appear with the real color on the picture, grey in the center with the 2 orange stripe on each pole, and a picture of the moon who take 80% of the size of the picture.

If you hesitate and wonder: "should i get it or not."
You should, I was worrying too but it really worth it :)
Dont forget to get yourself your T-Mount adaptor ;)

It's heavy, needs a robust tripod & a remote, a patience for finding the right fix and focusing, and the pouch supplied with it is too tight to be of any real use (impossible to close it if you let them T-mount ring adaptor on it). I'm actually thinking about having another one made that could fit the lens & bag inside, so it would have a little room to be comfortable. Then use the small bag for other tools... The front cap is so cheap it doesn't hold into place: always check if it's still there!

Don't be in a hurry when using this lens: even the moon is moving rapidly enough so that you can' t take a lot of shots before having to reposition yourself. A real tough job if in winter, because you're freezing your fingers while working on it... But it's so BIG now! The moon takes quite the whole picture when at 1300mm. :-)

Lack of precision when focusing is the biggest downplay I've faced so far, that would surely have been possible to correct on a low budget lens like this [no target like old school SLR lens]. Don't even think about using it to shoot moving items or live action! Or be prepared to deleted a lot of pictures and curse even more while trying... ;-)

Here's my best pic taken at 4 am while trying it on for the first time under a freezing wind in Canada [no, I wasn't drunk, but it would explain the low overall quality]. No effet or cropping: only web resolution downsizing...

This isn't a pro lens and it shouldn't be reviewed as one. I only found one review that was worth reading from beginning to end.

This link says it all and it saved me a lot of typing. It needs a good tripod. I use a tripod on the lens and a monopod on the camera for more support. A wireless remote or the 10 second (minimum) timer must be used to eliminate any vibration. Live View is best and will show the vibration better than the eyepiece.
