    Default lens

    im currently having a canon 60d with 18-200mm lens and im thinking of buying a 650-1300mm Telephoto Zoom Lens that cost me 300US dollars, is it worth it?

    This would be a telescopic lens that has been converted to the Canon mount. You need to check for reviews using google, and determine if the image quality is acceptable to you, if you will get vignetting, how small the equivalent aperture is, how comfortable you are with manual focus, and if you really need that sort of lens.

    normally for this kinda of lens, the photo quality it produce isn't really great... below average for the photo quality...
    You’ve got to push yourself harder.

    My advice is don't get the lens. For me, the lens is more important than the body as it will make or break the image quality. Putting a poor quality lens on a 60D body is a waste of money. The lens probably have a small maximum aperture - F/5.6 or f/8 and no IS. You will need a tripod to get anything (decent?) out of it.

    If you die die also must shoot at that focal length (for some reasons), then it's definitely worth it.

    Else, if you just want to try it out, listen to some of the seniors' comments above.

    Then you probably will need at least the 600mm reach.

    That would make it as obvious as the crescent moons on the members of our water polo team.

    They are not wrong, these lenses do have really narrow apertures and does not have an IS. The reviews for these lenses usually do have complaints that the image quality is horrible.
