3rd party lenses - where to post?

Hello,

Where should I post a question / discussion about cheapo 3rd party telephoto lenses - it the type you see on ebay for $100-$200. Pentax stuff is so expensive that I can't afford them, so I was after some opinions and suggestions - but the lens forums seem to be just about Pentax lenses?

many thanks

Thanks, I already saw that . Unfortunately I can't post a question / discussion there, ie like "which cheapo 500mm to buy" - the database doesn't contain the cheapos on eBay... hence the question

Post it in "Everything Else" forum. That's where Damn Brit told me to post when I couldn't find a suitable forum for my off the wall questions.

So which particular lenses would you be after?
If it's a 500mm, have you considered a mirror lens? There's even one on the marketplace at the moment...

Here's a thread on the notorious lenses:
