I just bought the Sony Alpha 65, 24.3 meg camera and have been using a sigma 70mm-300mm lens to shoot the moon. After croping, i would have good clear shots of the moon, but not close up of any specific area. I bought this lens and used it for the first time on March 4, 2012 and right away the images are amazing. I started out at 650mm just to get use to the lens and ended up at 2600 with crisp, clear images. I could not be happier with the lens. For the money, it is fantastic!
This lens is a bit bulkier than I expected, but a least it came with all the needed accessories (T-Mount for my camera, 2X multiplier, lens hood, and an adjustable tripod mount). I will try to upload a pic. This lens did work with my Sony a57 set to manual , non-Sony lens modes.
We purchased the Opteka lens to capture bald eagles and other wild life. We were surprised at the ease of use and quality of the pics for two amateurs.
