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 ...

Once I figured out the right F-Stop and manual focus usage, I've been able to take some really cool pictures with this lens.

    Don't listen to the negative reviews

    All the people trying to say that these lenses are horrible are the same people who turn up their noses at a tripod because it's not made from titanium. If you had a wide angel or telephoto lens and something happened to it, no, this won't give you the same quality photos as your $2000 lens. If you just want to take better photos with the 1 lens you have, here's what you need to know:Telephoto lens - I took shots with it attached to my 18-55mm and 55-300mm lenses. From 18-35mm there is darkness in the corners. From 18-45mm there's noticeable bowing toward the edges but past 45mm it's almost completely gone. From 100mm and up there is blurring around the outside of the image, so don't think you can turn your 300mm lens into a 600mm. That said, as long as you keep things in the 45-100mm range, eveything looks great. Not great enough to blow up on a poster or submit to Nat Geo, but odds are you don't have a camera good enough for that anyway.Wide angle lens -... 5/5 Joshua - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Tests conducted with a Nikon D3100

    I received a Zeikos 2X Telephoto lens and a Vivitar 0.43X wide angle converter with Macro. I tested both lenses indoors and outdoors using the Nikor kit lens (AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm) and an AF-S Nikkor 55-200mm lens, both in autofocus mode. The wide angle convertor performed well with both lenses. My only complaint was small dark areas on the corners of some of the outdoor pictures. The Telephoto worked well with the 18-55mm lens, both indoors and outdoors. Unfortunately the focus was soft with the 55-200mm lens. This could probably be overcome if you are good at manual focusing, but is a definite problem when using autofocus. In short I am pleased with the wide angle lens, but disappointed with the 2X as I had really planned on using it with the 55-200mm lens. The problem may not be the telephoto lens, but the focusing ability of the 55-200mm lens. Either way it is not usable for what I had initially intended it for.The price is excellent for two lenses and I am... 4/5 E. Anderson - See all my reviews, March 19, 2012

    0 3/5 Cody Lambert (United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: 52MM Vivitar 2.2x Telephoto and 0.43X Wide Angle High Definition w/ Macro Portion Lenses for NIKON DSLR (D5200 D5100 D5000 D3300 D3200 D3100 D3000) + Premium MagicFiber Microfiber Lens Cleaning Cloth (Electronics) The quality of the product itself is great; no complaints there, but don't expect "telephoto" or "wide angle" quality photos with these adapters. You'll get somewhat closer or wider shots but the lens does not give you the clarity you would get with a devoted telephoto or wide angle lens.There is a lot of edge distortion and blur, which is fine if you're going for an artsy effect, but I wasn't. Just know what you're photographing before you shoot and these adapters can work well with trial and error. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 8, 2013

This review is from: Vivitar +1 +2 +4 +10 Close-Up Macro Filter Set with Pouch (58mm) (Electronics) I had tried extension tubes for close up photos of very small flowers and insects, but the cheaper ones would not allow for auto focus and aperture setting. With the tubes I needed manual focus and aperture setting on the lens, which most autofocus lenses do not have. Attaching these lenses on the filter ring allows all auto functions to work and create very clear photos. The price is remarkable as well. 0, December 2, 2012

    Great for amateur, not so for serious shooters.

    For amateur use, these close-up lenses are OK and very funny.You can make excellent portraits and take some amazing shots of small and tiny things like coins spiders or flowers.If you use them for what they are made for, normal conditions, on a standard camera, close shots and portraits they will work quite good, OK!.Used stacked on a Sony HX100V, taking advantage of its large zoom to do macro shots, they are just OK (some come out very good). But in contrasting lighting situations and particularly getting closer to the borders of the frame a strong chromatic aberration appears, the stronger the lens (+1, +2, +4 to +10) used, the stronger the chromatic aberration is gotten. But remember, that is while using the HX100V powerful zoom with Vivitars lenses stacked on it for doing extreme macro, a very exigent situation indeed.Conclusion:In high quality demanding situations, extreme macro photos, enlarging or make big prints they're not so... 3/5 aaanouel - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Awesome lens for little money.

    I just got it and took some shots in my room. So a more detailed review will follow.I use this lens together with a Nikon D5300. The images seem sharp, for the price the quality is awesome. If you want to see examples, go on flickr and search for "Vivitar 8mm". This will give you an idea whats possible with this lens.As you might have noticed, this is a "manual lens". It means, that all the automatic settings that I am used to are not working. This means, no autofocus and also no automatic shutter/aperture. And no automatic flash. The camera still gives a hint, when the picture is sharp, but all settings have to be set manually, so point and shoot will not work or require luck.Still, using the lans makes fun and spending some time with the manual and getting used to manual mode should do no harm.The lens comes with a bag, a microfiber, and caps. The caps look cheap and the mount is the other way round, but the lens itself gives no worse... 4/5 Maximilian B. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

So a more detailed review will follow.I use this lens together with a Nikon D5300. The images seem sharp, for the price the quality is awesome. If you want to see examples, go on flickr and search for "Vivitar 8mm". This will give you an idea whats possible with this lens.As you might have noticed, this is a "manual lens". It means, that all the automatic settings that I am used to are not working. This means, no autofocus and also no automatic shutter/aperture. And no automatic flash.

    Vivitar 8mm Ultra Wide - lacking right 'connection' for Nikon D3200

    0 2/5 Laura McNamara - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vivitar 8mm Ultra Wide f/3.5 HD Aspherical Fisheye Lens for Nikon D3000, D3100, D3200, D3300, D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300, D7000, D7100, D40, D40x, D50, D60, D70, D70s, D80, D90, D100, D200, & D300 Digital SLR Cameras (Electronics) The lens itself was pretty and a fisheye; but it did not have the right connections for the Nikon D3200 camera we expected. As a result, the camera would not recognize the lens. We returned it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 17, 2015
