A lot of people who would buy this lens most likely do not know how to use the len. The Bower SLY500pc is actually everything I was looking for in a high powered lens. I love how it is completely manual. When I did film photography there was no auto focus, you had to know what you were doing, so this lens made me feel right at home. Though it says 500mm focal range, I would say it is more close to 400mm. It is light enough that if you shoot with a High ISO, and Shutter you do not need a tripod, For low lighting you will need a tripod, and a shutter trigger which Walmart does sell also. The Mount that I got was for Canon EF/EOS but what I love is I spent some extra money and bought a mount for my Olympus OM-10 and it works great with the film. For Starting out photographers, I would not suggest this, but for people who have a lot of time behind the camera this lens is good quality, for the price of others that are 1000 dollars or more.
