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 ...

    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

    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

    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?)

    Excellent value

    0 5/5 Robin - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vivitar 500MR Lens 500 Mirror Telephoto Lens (Electronics) Solid quality construction. Sturdy, yet lightweight, and doesn't have the least "dinky" feel to it. Very smooth focus ring with just the right amount of resistance. This f/8.0 version is, with its 72mm diameter, very portable and quite a bit smaller than the f/6.3 variant with its 92mm diameter. I'm very pleased with it, but if I could wish for one thing it would be a secondary fine-grained focus ring (or thumbscrew as seen on some lenses), to counter the usual extreme tele lens annoyance of getting accurate focus on long distances. Potential buyers should also be wary of the fact that mirror reflex lenses, regardless of what focal length, have an incredibly narrow depth of field - lots of patience is required to get sharp images. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 15, 2011

    Great value, but this lens is not for everybody.

    I've only spent an hour or so testing this lens, but so far I'm quite happy with it.But be realistic, this is NOT an "L" class lens, nor is it "fast glass"! For $100 (in round numbers), however, it is fairly decent.First, be sure to order an adapter that fits YOUR camera to go with it. For my Canon T3i, I got a fotodiox product, which has worked fine.Also, as you may wish to keep the adapter attached to your lens for convenience, get yourself an extra cover for the back of Canon lenses (cheap!), or whatever brand ofcamera you have. The back cover that comes with this lens will NOT fit your adapter!I've gotten nice, shsrp, even impressive images on this overcast day in the Washington, D.C. suburbs, but focusing IS a bit difficult. You might want to focus with the "Live View" screen, if that lets you "zoom in" even further to nail that focus.I probably would not recommend this lens for trying to get your kid's winning... 5/5 Beulah "Beulah" (Kensington, MD) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Big Dissapointment

    0 2/5 chuckbobuck (SF Bay Area) - See all my reviews This review is from: Vivitar 500mm Mirror Lens (V-500MR) (Electronics) I just got this lens and I'm not quite sure what to even do with it. I tested it using a Nikon D3200 at 1/4000th on a tripod released by timer and to be honest the images from this lens are the equivalent sharpness of my 18-55mm Nikon lens hand held and cropped in to the same size. My 55-300mm Nikon lens out-performs this by far even when hand held. The aperture on this lens is fixed at F8, so the depth of field and focus can't be improved by increasing it. The quality seems good, but the performance just isn't there. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, October 24, 2013

    Photography (Vivitar)

    The aspherical multi-coated optics ensure bright, razor sharp images. It has a nicely damped and rubber-clad focus ring, allowing for smooth focus pulls and precision focusing. Due to its internal focusing mechanism, the physical size of the lens remains constant.
    Whether you are an amateur photographer, or a professional looking for an affordable portrait lens, the Vivitar 85mm F/1.8 is the perfect choice.
    The lens comes with a removable lens hood, caps, and pouch, along with a five year warranty.
    The Vivitar 85mm F1.8 Aspherical Lens opens up new photographic opportunities you'd never get with a zoom. The focal length and aperture make it a great portrait lens. When shooting in bright conditions with fast shutter speeds and low ISOs, you'll create beautiful subject separation, and backgrounds which melt away into soft colors.
    The Vivitar 85mm lens is also a great choice for DSLR videographers. The lens mounted aperture ring works just like a professional video camera.
