4.0 out of 5 stars Everything you've read on this product is true, March 12 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware: refurbished box sets!, Aug. 15 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is not a new product: under the original shrinkwrap (or so it seemed), there were some dvds with finger traces or slight damage. Nothing to make it unreadable, but still not a good sign of quality control. Very deceiving of Amazon to let something like that slip!

Nothing to say right now about the content itself, because it's going to take a long time to watch...

I was looking for this single cd for 2 decades, so I was pretty happy to finally find it here!
You just don't hear that kind of music anymore...

3.0 out of 5 stars Flawed dvd because of the product concept, but movie quality is ok., Aug. 15 2014
This review is from: Code Name: Emerald [Import] (DVD)
A WWII movie from the '80s that isn't so bad. Not that much action or special effects, mostly a story (a good thing I'd say!).
You can learn about the movie plot elsewhere, so I'll talk about the dvd edition alone. It's a "a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc. It should play in all standard DVD players". Since it's an official burned dvd (the color tells all), the life span of this product is unknown. It comes from the Warner Brothers Archive Collection licensed under the Turner Entertainement company. It's unfortunately the only way to see this movie on DVD, because there is no other edition. No extra on the dvd, and no scene selection: you can only jump from 10 minutes increments!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but not "to die for" must have..., July 10 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: V2 1986-1995: Singles (Audio CD)
This box set is artificially high priced because it was not re-issued in a smaller package like the 1981-1985 singles. And it's not cds but "Copy Control" discs, so Amazon is again in the wrong concerning the product details.

Other than that, it's nice to finally have some rare versions not available elsewhere (I'm mostly referring to the "Burning the Ground" single), with a copy of their 45 RPM sleeves.

Best orchestral soundtrack of the year! A little bit deceived by the fact that some tracks are mixed together, but nevertheless are great score to a great movie!

3.0 out of 5 stars Copy Control disc instead of a real standard CD..., July 4 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Unlike the description states, it's not a real cd, but a "Copy Control disc". Therefore, the label "compact disc" is not accurate, and misleading!
Other than that, it' good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great, June 5 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was stunned by the musical ambiance of this weird movie when I first watched it, so I really wanted the soundtrack. But it's only 20 minutes long, and there is no info as to the writer's credits... So I only discovered elswhere that it was Rachmaninov's music! Why it's not written anywhere on the soundtrack cd's packagning is beyond me... The film's ending credits are a lot more precised, but the soundtrack's package is only a cheap digipak.

A very nice piece by Sebastien Tellier is also included: I guess it's worth to discover too
