Update on this with the Rokinon 800mm and my Sony A100. Finally
decided I was not going to ever get a decent shot with this lens so
was looking and saw the seller had put a note in with the lens stating
that if we were not completely satisfied to contact them. Did that
last night not expecting much but they wrote back pretty quickly and
said the lens was NOT compatible with the A100. GEEZE! They offered
a full refund on the purchase so will be out shopping again soon.

Thanks for all the input but I think in all this I have decided that
my heart is near and ear with macro photography more then telephoto
photography so I'll probably be adding to my macro toys then shopping
for a big telephoto lens :O)

Well done. Thanks for the update. A good result and a wise decision.

The experience has clearly not been wasted on you!

I agree, have to step out of your comfort zone occasionally to stretch
your legs :O)

Lesson learned. Decided the money will be better spent on a better
view finder magnifier and a macro slide mount for my tripod.... and
possibly a macro light ring, too.

Thanks to all for the input!
