A couple of months ago I bought this telephoto lens from Dealextreme. I had very low expectations and my initial tests proved that it was even worse than I had in mind when ordering.
As you can see from the image the distortion is horrible and it doesn’t even cover the whole image.But today I discovered a scene that would benefit a bit of telephoto.
…the machine between the houses. So I mounted the lens and did some experimenting.
I got closer. No doubt about that. And with Picture Show, Tilt Shift Generator, Camera+ and Photo FX I could have a bit of fun as well.
So, sometimes bad telephoto is better than no telephoto…

The results from such crappy optics are nothing short of impressive, Eirik!
I especially liked the use of tilt-shift effect at full zoom on the second last photo.
DIY is fun. 4 years ago i built my own macro lens out of optics from an old Kodak slide projector. Well, it was fun for a while..:
Wow. That’s good results from a home made lens. Do you have some more info and an image of the solution?
Thanks. Here is a photo and a brief description:
