Customer Reviews

Easy to use and reasonable quality for the price. I purchased this for my K-r, mostly to take pictures of the moon. I'd contemplated similarly priced 500mm+ lenses, but as I've got pretty lousy eyesight, I wanted to take advantage of autofocus with my 55-300mm kit lens. This item isn't large or heavy or difficult to use. Seems sturdy and connects to both body and lens quite satisfactorily. The autofocus is slow of course, but it's usable and reliable in high contrast. I was able to get accurate autofocus of the moon at 300mm f/5.6 (I'll try to attach one of the pictures I took), well slower than what the rating on the box said the autofocus would work with (I think it said f/4 was the slowest). You'll need to be very steady, but I was able to get usable handheld shots at 600mm just leaning on things and using the camera's image stabilization. I can't wait to try it out in some different settings, but for now I'm very satisfied with this purchase. 4Fits Nikon D5200 (F-Mount) and works great! I read a ton of reviews before buying this product. It does exactly what I wanted. It increases the zoom capabilities of my zoom lens. I have a NIkon D5200 and attached this with a 55-300 AF lens. It doubles the zoom and doesn't lose quality. It really is great so far.Other reviews pointed out how the auto-focus does not work properly due to it constantly trying to focus. I found an easy fix for taking still image shots. Hold the shutter (take photo) button halfway in to have it auto-focus. As soon as it captures the focus properly, let go of the shutter button and turn off your auto-focus, It's set to the appropriate distance and you can now take the photo without it continuing to try and focus.Pros:Fits very snug to my Nikon D5200.Comes with caps and case.Doubles zoom range.Cheaper than upgrading lens.Cons:Seems to have a metal on metal sound when removing it from the camera (worried that it may wear at the camera threads over time).Auto-focus doesn't work reliably. 4Okay for snapshots, less so for creative work, nature, sports, ... I bought the Vivitar TC, and looked at this as an experiment. For 80 or 90 bucks, I thought, it's worth the chance. I'd been hoping that Nikon's teleconverter was just wildly overpriced at $600. Maybe it is - I still don't know. But I can say that this TC produces very-noticeably muddy, chromatically aberrated (blue on one edge of the subject, red on the opposite) images. It also causes my D90 and Nikon 80-200mm F2.8 lens to hunt viciously for focus, even on a mildly cloudy day. Often, this hunting for focus restarts spuriously after it had settled on a focus previously. I had it on a tripod, so there was no camera movement. I have posted a comparative photo in the product review.I would not recommend this item.My guess is that the Nikon is better, but nowhere near significantly better to justify the 8x cost. :-(The preceding was posted on March 1st, 2011. The following is posted on May 31st, 2011. The Nikon TC referred to is the Nikon TC 20E III ...--- Just had an opportunity to follow through: A very nice person was selling a Nikon TC 20E III Teleconverter on CL, and allowed me to experiment before buying it. The photos that came out of this experiment are attached to this product's photo list, and the results, I have to say, are disappointing (for the Nikon.) It is about twice the size, and six times the cost, and while it felt more solid, its images were slightly, but not compellingly better than the Vivitar, especially considering the cost difference. So I'm going to be relying on the Vivitar and various sharpening & contrast manipulations while I save my money for a really obscene 400mm lens... 2Does exact what it is designed to do, however ... Does exact what it is designed to do, however (on a telescope)!I tried a Barlow lens to double the magnification of my telescope..The Barlow lens dimmed the image considerably making the attachment unusable for full frame cinematography.However; in desperation, something inside me said to try this attachment, and I did.To my surprise I have double magnification from my Celestron to my Full frame camera.It's well made, and works with my conventional (Nikkor) lens, however; its used primarily on the Celestron.I'm totally impressed! 5It works Here s the thing, this works good but it s a little loose on the camera and on the lens so I have had a couple errors with the connection. And auto focus will only work on my not expensive lens because the aperture is too high. I knew that I was buying a less expensive model so I new it wasn t perfect. With that said I am pretty happy with the purchase. 4Doesn't really help with getting more detail from distant scenes. Definitely disappointed with this teleconverter. Autofocusing doesn't really work unless you have a very fast lens so trying to get things in focus is a major pain. This is compounded by a very shallow depth of field when using long lenses.However, even when I get the image in focus and use a tripod, the image quality is not noticeably better. In the pics I show a picture I took with my 300mm doubled in size and another picture with the teleconverter on top. The teleconverter picture is a little worse.The main reason I didn't give this a one-star review is that I plan on keeping it in case it becomes useful with other lenses. 2Works well with a Canon 85mm f/1.8 USM I didn't see many reviews regarding using the teleconverter with a prime lens so here is my take on the 2x4C from Vivitar.I was a little worried that the TC would wash out photos or just not work with my fixed Canon 85mm f/1.8 USM lens. From what I have seen so far it works much better than expected. Photos are relatively sharp and auto-focus works well as long as you have enough light. Setting the aperture to 1.8 (reported as 3.5 on camera) and ISO 400 produces fast auto-focus and better handheld photos than I would have expected on an overcast day. Using a tripod and remote would likely produce extremely crisp photos.One bonus I didn't expect is the TC automatically reports the equivalent aperture and focal length to the camera.IMO if you already have an 85mm f/1.8, this TC is a much better option than buying a $1000+ 135mm f/2.0L or the ~$800 200mm f/2.8L. Or a ~200mm zoom lens for that matter.The body I used to test the TC is a Canon T3i (600D). 5Works better with aperture priority and single point focus I love this lens. It's not perfect, but for <$100 I did not expect it to be. At first I had difficulty getting any usable photos as the auto focus would not settle. I tried to hold and sometime would not get a shot in over 10 seconds. I switched to aperture priority and single point focus (center) and most of the issues went away - at least in daylight. I use this for casual sports photos of the kids and it works great for this. The reach is great and I am able to get photos that I have never been able to get before. it's also very useful for getting "in the moment" shots because your are further away and not directly interacting with your subjects. Images are sharp if you can get the focus. We also swap out zoom lens for closer lens quite frequenter and the lens has been durable enough to handle the switches. 5OK for the price compared to the Nikon 2x Using a Nikon D5100 stock 18-55mm DX lens. If you use auto-focus the frame jumps and moves down when you press the shutter to initiate auto-focus. It's really odd since you not only hear it, see it, but you feel it jump. Auto-focus does not work on this lens. Using the 55-300mm DX lens, the frame does not jump, but the auto-focus is slow, but works ok, but not great.I suggest using manual focus with this converter to achieve better results. It appear that the Lens is having a difficult time communicating with the camera through this converter. Using manual focus, I achieved acceptable images though very soft. Don't expect professional quality images at this focal length, but the images are ok for the casual photographer. 3Caveat emptor Arrived OK & ahead of schedule (Friday instead of next Tuesday). First, there is no evidence of Vivitar anywhere on it The one that I received came from a company called Bower. It does have Nikon mounts and the lenses mount correctly. The converter works, but, at least on my Nikon D3200, the autofocus doesn't work - seems to oscillate back and forth across the correct focus point - both with the AF-S 18-55mm and the AF-S 55-200. I've long used Vivitar accessories, from back in the days when Nikons used film, and frankly I'm disappointed with this product. I'm debating on whether to keep it or not. I probably will, because it extends my telephoto range, but I'll have to use manual focus. Once I had a chance to take a few pics with it, I'll consider revising this review 1
