Default Digital Optics- good/bad/HELP

I'm looking at a digital optics wideangle and telephoto lens and filters on ebay. Is this brand ok, or would I be wasting my money? I'm unsure of what to get and where to get it. Any help would be appreciated.

Everyone has different standards. In my opinion Digital Optics and Crystal Optics are pretty poor. I suggest that you search for photos taken with the lenses you intend to buy and see if they meet your standards. It would also help if we knew what camera you have.

What about the Opteka brand? Like I said I just (today) got my camera. Can't really afford a high price lens but don't want to waste my money either. Opinions???

Buy cheap stuff. Look at it this way, if you buy a really good lens you can keep it long after the camera has been replaced. Then if it does not fit any cameras that you have you got something that will sell on e-bay. Examples: Olympus A-200, B-300 etc.

Wait untill you can afford something worth the money, and in the mean time learn your camera.
