Shots will look horrid though  Laugh out loud.

Only chance you can get with this lens is with a high end DSLR I think, otherwise you are not going to get much out of it :/.

And if you can justify needing such focal length..

If you wanted people to suspect that your camera was a rocket launcher, this would be a good lens to have.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy Seriously though, with what little I know about zoom lenses I'm positive that this sort of focal length at that price would be like looking through the proverbial coke bottle bottom. It sure is tempting to try at that price though.......
