Quote:You need to give the folks here some more information about what you want to do with it for them to help you. The Vixen Polarie is good enough to blow you away at less than $400 but its no good for visual use as it is made for DSLRs with lenses. The more info gou give on expected use the more these fine folks here can help you.
