  • Could be better
    Verified BuyerReviewed by MiStarSeeker - January 8, 2021

    Overall Ok. just taking out of the box the lens cap broke off. I have had to take apart the focus knobs 2-3 times already to reset the gears. Knowing all of this now I wish I would have spent a little more to gain a little better quality.
