Re: cheap lenses

I'm interested too, so if you buy one, let us hear your impressions. Here are a couple articles, one new and one old that offer a couple of different opinions on them:

I'm always on the lookout for anything cheap that works well like the Phoenix 100 macro I picked up a few years ago. I don't do much macro, but when I do it serves me well in spite of it's cheap plastic build. The optics are sharp and that's what counts. I'd like to find a gem like it on the long end for wildlife, since it wouldn't get a lot of use either. Another infrequently used item I'd like to find a cheap way to go for is a fast mid-range zoom for the now and then concert or other indoor 'no flash allowed' event. It's that or hit the lottery.
