    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

    Know what you're shooting first

    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

The photos turned out sharp and vivid with great details that I couldn't get with my zoom to 300 mm. Being an experienced photographer, the manual focus is no problem. It is probably more accurate than some autofocus lenses that get confused on where to focus. As for the f8, I compensated for it by increasing the ISO setting, plus shooting in nice sunlight helps too of course. Although the lens is chunky, it isn't long, so I was able to hand-hold it without a tripod. It does help to steady oneself against a tree or something. To avoid neck strain, I keep a hand on my camera to support most of the weight in my hand. I do that anyhow to be ready to lift my camera quickly at any moment to not miss those quick shots. This lens was a much more convenient choice instead of investing a great deal more money on digiscoping, plus the results are better. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 27, 2015
