Just got a cosina 100-500mm

Hey everyone,

I just picked one up on ebay for $80 I know you get what you pay for but for the price I thought I would try it. Does anyone have any example pics or experience with this lens. I tried finding some info but all i can see is that it was also branded as a vivitar.

I see there is one review of the Vivitar Series 1 100-500 in our forum's lens reviews section.

The review seems informative but I'm wondering if anyone maybe has some example pics. I know IQ won't be great but I'm wondering if pics from this lens are at least decent.

You'll receive it pretty soon since you won it.
Fire away and post some photos or add more to the review here.
We will be looking forward to it!
