We believe the very short physical length of the lens made TTL autofocus measuring impossible. Does this parallel, separate position cause the lens to autofocus incorrectly? We'll deal with this shortly. The 28-+70mm Vivitar weighs 16 ...

    Priced Right

    Being a lifetime cheapskate I couldn't resist this low priced set, but kept my expectations low. The lens holding pouch is pretty nice with room for four lenses. Attaching the lenses to my Pentax lens is also an easy procedure. Detaching is also easy, even with the CPL filter.The filters are very light with metal frames, and the type of filter is clearly marked on each thin frame.Performance is not real impressive, especially that of the CPL. I've had at least three circular polarizers for previous cameras and all could outperform this one. I took about fifty sky pictures using this new Vivitar lens and compared the CPL pictures with those taken with no filter and some taken with the UV filter. There's little discernable improvement with the CPL filter. I do detect a slight difference in color as I turn the wheel on the filter, but there's no deep blue sky, no great contrast.Just before posting this review I decided to check to see if I had another... 3/5 Spudman (Pasadena, MD United States) - See all my reviews, September 16, 2011

    Circular polarizing filter blurry

    0 2/5 Anonymous (Michigan) - See all my reviews This review is from: Vivitar FK358 58mm 3-Piece Camera Lens Filter Sets (Electronics) The circular polarizing filter was terrible. I put these filters on my new nikon 55-300mm lens for my d3100. The polarizing filter did not work when I was using the zoom close to the 300mm range. It made the picture blurry. The other two filters were fine. I also did not see much gradations change in the color of the sky behind my blurry picture. My guess is that I got what I paid for a cheap poorly manufactured filter. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 24, 2011

This review is from: Vivitar FK358 58mm 3-Piece Camera Lens Filter Sets (Electronics) I looked at various photography websites and local stores for a set of filters of this quality and, while I found some single filters, they were not the price & quality of the ones in this kit. These all have metal mountings, are optic quality glass and are fully coated. The UV filter acts as both a hase filter and a protector for all of my lenses. I highly recommend this kit. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 2, 2011

    Great lenses

    I thought these were going to be plastic, but they are really good quality glass & aluminum.I also heard you loose 2 or 3 EVs using teleconverters.After much testing, the exposure is exactly the same - no loss.I was also curious if the image, going through extra glass would suffer, but it doesn't - in fact with the magnification,it's better.So my M4/3 14-42 is now a 70-105 perfect stabilized autofocus portrait lens.Better than my legacy 1.4 58mm.Similar the wide angle is a 6 to 14 mm ultra wide angle zoom.What a great set of lenses.I got the 4 adapter rings, 2 were identical so only 3 sizes - which isn't a big deal since I don't have that size lens that was missing.At the lowest focal length (14mm) on my four-thirds lens, there is a substantial viniette. I may use that artistically though. I don't know what would happen on an APS-c 17-55 though... it disappears pretty quickly... 5/5 Sebastian - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Vivitar

    Good performer, low price

    This Vivitar appears to be f2.0 wide open, When compared to the canon 85mm fd 1.8, it matches exactly when the canon is stopped down to f-2.0,( exposure, sharpness), however the Vivitar has better contrast. I have not compared higher f-stops as of yet. This lens is great on the pana, g6, gh2-3, or apsc, and works fine on fullframe (5d2) no vignette at all, even with hood attached. Focus barrel is smooth for 75% of the rotation, the last 25% seems to be slightly rubbing something, feels as if there's less grease on that portion of the internal mech, I've heard of this same issue on the Opteka 85mm, which I am guessing is the same lens, however the rubbing doesn't effect focusing, but you do feel and barely hear it. When using a follow focus it's less noticeable. This lens has a short throw, not ideal for a 1st AC, but it's workable with practice, I'm also hoping that with some working in, it will lessen or eliminate the rubbing all together, only time will tell.

    Fun lens, be aware it is manual focus only

    The Vivitar 85mm f/1.8 lens is low priced, but has good performance based on my personal experiences with it. I would recommend it for someone who doesn't mind manual focusing and doesn't want to print 11x17 or larger. At 8x10, the prints from this lens are great.At the price point, you shouldn't expect Canon L glass level of performance, however, for the price you can expect to have fun with the 1.8 aperture and a decent shot.In terms of the image quality, there is some color fringing (Lightroom can fix this, so I assume Photoshop and Aperture can as well). Bokeh can be nice and creamy. I have seen sample images on-line where the bokeh was a bit harsh, however I have not YET had that experience with this lens.Build quality is OK. It feels kind of cheap and the included lens hood, if you remove it from the lens, can make the lens itself look pretty odd with the way it bulges. I just leave the hood on regardless because it doesn't add much weight and... 5/5 Stephen M. Lerch (Elkton, MD United States) - See all my reviews, January 2, 2014

    Compare to the great brand

    0 5/5 Gallego - See all my reviews This review is from: Vivitar DKS-18 Photo/SLR/Laptop Sling Backpack (Black) (Personal Computers) Yes, everything fits and well protected in this bag. It is very similar to the Tamrac Evolution 8 or 9 but only 1/3 or 1/4 of the price respectively. I think the side access is very important....unless you want to take the backpack off and lie it down on the street for the next burglar. The rain cover also comes handy and important unless you only stay at home.....in that case you don't need a backpack. You can buy the big brand but I am telling you that I made a side by side comparison and there is very little difference......the zippers are actually better on this product. I am selling my Tamrac Expedition and staying with this one instead of the Tamrac Evolution. Forgot to mention also that the tripod leg pocket at the bottom is also bigger and stronger than the Tamrac and you can conceal it in case you don't carry a Tripod. The laptop pocket is well padded and big enough for any 14 inch screen. The handle on the top feels stronger than the Tamrac Evolution IMHO. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 1, 2012

    A necessity for shooting in sunlight

    It is exactly what I needed. I have only used it briefly in may back yard. When taking shallow depth of field shots, I need to look more closely at my pictures to check focus. This unit has been a great help. If you only do casual shooting using your camera's automatic mode, you don't need this device. I'm using it on Nikon D5000 with 2.7" display.

The magnifier stays on the LCD screen nicely unless you try to shake it off.2) The metal ring that sticks to the LCD has very strong glue but causes no damage if you ever want to remove it when you buy another camera.3) Problem: The metal ring prevents the flip-viewer LCD from nesting in the camera body when the LCD is facing camera body for protective storage.

    Works as described

    0 5/5 Alan I. (Northern California, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vivitar 3" LCD Hood 2x Magnifier (Electronics) I am an amateur photographer taking nearly 10,000 pictures a month. I needed a hood magnifier to help me see photo details on the lcd screen when out in the field on bright sunny days. I am very pleased with the hood magnifier so far. It ships with a durable and tight fitting storage bag and has a durable and long leash to wear around the camera or a camera bag or your neck so the hood magnifier is near-by when you need it. Note: I have no intentions of applying the adhesive strips to the back of my camera for somewhat permanent mounting, so I cannot comment on that aspect of the product. I would recommend this product to my friends, family, and Amazon shoppers. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 28, 2013
