This is where I'll be uploading any shots I've taken with this $99 toy lens. Thanks ebay!
It really is quite unusable handheld in most conditions unless you use ISO1600 or higher... The viewfinder gets quite dark after 550mm or so and is extremely difficult to manual focus, even on a tripod, not to mention trying this handheld.
Using the live view feature of my camera on the tripod was the best method of focus, especially at F16/800mm.
will add more thoughts later.
