Yes it is "cheap" glass, it is completely manual which is one of the reasons why I like mine so much. Picture quality with no post processing (PP) is well... just look at the photo below. It is not for everyone, and like most others have said you will find better deals and get better quality "glass" buying used. Im just posting this as an option because I knew what I was buying in the first place, I am fine with the quality of the photos and I have fun
I have had mine for about 2 years now.
Oh, and you are going to need a tripod, it is a heavy and hard to focus while holding it with your hands
Found a more in focus photo with no PP Attachment 32479
no PP, 200 ISO Attachment 32477
A closer shot of the moon with Some PP, mostly sharpening Attachment 32478
Mmmmm one of those would be fun. I have a hawk nesting in a tree near by, that just might be what I am looking for to take pictures of it. also have some crows nesting a few trees over and any time the hawk flies to close they dive bomb it.
