Samyang 650-1300mm f/8.0-16.0 Zoom Lens (White)

You Pay: $229.00
Product Highlights
  • Powerful Ultra-telephoto Zoom Lens
  • Aperture Range: f/8-16
  • Inner Focus Lens System
  • Low-dispersion Optical Glass
  • Fully Multi-coated
  • Aluminum Alloy Design
  • Built-in Lens Hood and Tripod Mount

The white 650-1300mm f/8.0-16.0 Zoom Lens from Samyang is a powerful ultra-telephoto zoom lens useful in any situation where a distant subject needs to be drawn close. Low dispersion, fully multi-coated lenses mean little glare and full light transmission for shaper images. An integrated lens hood also aids in keeping unwanted light out of your images. This manual focus lens can focus on subjects as close as 16.40' (5 m). And worth noting, when used on an APS-C format DSLR, the equivalent focal range increases to approximately 1000-2000mm (the exact equivalency depends on which camera body it is used with).

Made from aluminum alloy with a rugged design, this lens can withstand the conditions you may encounter in the woods or at the stadium. A built-in, rotating tripod mount keeps the lens balanced and stable when used with a tripod or monopod. The lens is compatible with many brands of cameras, but needs a T-mount adapter (sold separately) specific to that brand. Also available separately is a dedicated 2x converter that can expand the focal range to an incredible 1300-2600mm.


A powerful zoom lens with a 650-1300mm focal length, this is great lens to introduce yourself to the joys of wildlife and sports photography.
A versatile T-mount allows you to utilize the lens with a corresponding adapter on cameras by Nikon, Canon, Minolta, Sony, Pentax, Olympus, Contax, Fujica, Konica
Aluminum alloy design keeps this lens lightweight and rugged.

    It is very easy to use. It's so great because it gives very sharp images at F8 and his focal length can reach 4000 with the converter 2x and in APS-C mode.

    Comments about 650-1300mm f/8.0-16.0 Zoom Lens (White):

    This lens is just what it says it is. For the money you are getting a lens to work with and everyone should know tropod use only . If you had the same size lens for 30,000 dallors a tripod would be needed also.That comes from reading the other review on this lens.not sure if anyone could hold a 1300mm lens still to get a good picture. My use was for the moon to start with and worked out well after playing with it. I would say to is a good buy for the money.

      Focus ring does not work

            Comments about 650-1300mm f/8.0-16.0 Zoom Lens (White):

            Even though it says the brand is Rokinon here, the shipment was a Samyang. But that's ok since Rokinon, Samyang, Bower, Phoenix are all just the same company with different names. The lens is just terrible. It is very heavy, so you MUST have a tripod. Forget about holding it with your hand while shooting, your arms will hurt very fast. When you turn the focus ring, nothing happens to the image you're looking at. Either I got a defective product or it can't focus....absolutely NOTHING happens to the image when you turn the focus ring. All in all, $[$] down the drain. Do yourself a huge favour and don't buy this. Completely worthless.
