    Cheap as chips aren't they, not used one myself but I understand they have a bit of a following here [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    A tripod or monopod is a must though, hope your eyes are good for the manual focusing, I'd like to see some pics when you try it out.

    yes cheap, i have a two x adapter for it too, hope to get some great night shots.
    focus on my panasonic lumix G2 & G10 are great, they zoom in at the click of a button so i can manual focus easy. should be ok.

    perfect for moon shots, and maybe some wildlife but the ring bokeh is generally unpopular.
