Hi

I have been looking at a Opteka 10063 lens for a Nikon D3500, this is a Japanese lens from America for less than £100. It sounds too good to be true? I would love any advice on weather to buy please?

You know the maxim about "if it looks too good to be true then it is".

The lens is probably manual focus, and image quality may not be the very best.

I think the numbers give it away ,100mm f6.3 and probably manual focus and diaphragm
.AS ABOVE leave it alone ,plus you will incur import duties to

I am wrong in that assumption it’s a F.3.5 fisheye Lens .. on amazon u.k for £301 .. two things if your getting it for sub £80 it might be worth going for ,that’s if you really need a fisheye , but caveat emptor there bloody hard to sell on again
