Canon 8-120 lens?

Anyone ever heard of or have some beta on this kind of lens? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150495455644#ht_4960wt_1273

It's really cheap and I'm hoping the zoom/focus would be smoother than my motor driven lenses that I currently have with my t2i. I have never seen them before. I guess they were for a super 8 camera and a seller said I can get an adapter, I will confirm that tommorrow.

Quality of glass is important as well. Not sure where this lens stands comparativley...

Can a follow focus be used on this?

Be well,

I'd do some research on this lens. Here is an old blog I found.

Thanks Brent,

I did research it and what I found out was the sensor in my t2i would be too big, and there may or may not be an adapter readily available..... So I'm passing.

Thanks for the link!
