Astronomy: I got plenty of moon photos at 650mm and 1200mm. Two tripods and "pillow" under the lens, because even with the camera timer, the lens/camera kept shaking for several seconds. I managed to keep it completely still and used the remote.
Then I compared it with a moon picture I took with my 200mm Canon lens a week ago.
Result: if I crop the moon from the 200mm Canon lens photograph, I get the SAME resolution with the photos I got with 1200mm setting on this Opteka. A little better contrast/colors with the Canon lens. I posted side-side comparison here (currently image 14/18 in this site).
Nature: Forget it if the subject is moving. If it's still, you'll get the same result with a 250-400mm lens, but with slightly less resolution, compromised colors and probably "fog", depending on the time.
Who may like this lens: Amateurs that do not have anything higher than 150mm already, and they want something cheap for limited uses, all manual. It works just like a big magnifying glass - it's not an actual telephoto lens. Works great as "spying binoculars" through the camera. It doesn't have an "infinity" focus, so when you take the moon, it focuses "somewhere in between"... it's as if the moon is not far away, but at a specific close distance. Not the entire surface will be in focus.
Who will be disappointed: Those who think that they discovered something that Canon and Nikon have not discovered.
Carrying it around is another sad story, especially when someone with 1/3 of the size and volume will get much better pictures than you, quickly and accurately.
I'd recommend this to anyone looking to dip their toes into nature photography and has the patience to perfect learn the manual focus. Awesome buy!
Update. 6/15/16 The ring (coupling) may get stuck on the lens. There are for set screws that need to be tightened up if this indeed happens to you. I still think it's awesome.
2. It's very difficult to focus because the lens is NOT balanced especially when the whole length is pulled out. You'll need a heavy/sturdy tripod which will cost much more than this lens.
3. The bag come with the lens is simply not big enough to hold the lens.
In short, don't waste time on this one. I initially wanted to use it to take pictures of an osprey nest near the center of a lake. My canon 400mm lens is too short for that. So I bought this one just for taking pictures of static objects far away. I found that pictures taken with my canon 400mm lens with 100% cropping is still much better than the ones taken with the 1300mm lens
