    It rattles! ......... it's Dec 17th and I'm home. I've compared the photos with and without this lens. NOT GOOD!

    1/5 RONALD P NEWBERG - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vivitar  4358W 0.43X 58mm Wide Angle Lens (Electronics) I ordered this lens on Monday. I received it on Wednesday. Thursday I left for California. Thursday night I open the box and attached the lens to my camera. The cap at the rear of the lens sticks and was hard to get off. Once it was on the camera there was a rattle. The middle lens element was bouncing around. I won't be home for a month so I probably won't get to return it...

    Disappointed but not surprised

    1/5 Randall S SIms - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vivitar  4358W 0.43X 58mm Wide Angle Lens (Electronics) Disappointed but not . Got this to mess around to be able to take some wide angle shots with a 300mm lense. The edges of any picture taken is blurry or dirty like there was a film on the egdes. I cleaned with a lense safe solution and it did not help. The coatings on the lens produce "cool" pictures.

    Great Value for the Price-Recommended budget lens

    I'm very happy with this purchase. The biggest bargain lens for canon dslr shooters on a budget has been the "Nifty Fifty" canon 50mm 1f/.8 lens. I also place this 85mm f/1.8 lens in the Must-have arsenal (particularly for portraits and video). So many people complain about how "cheap" the lens is. But in truth it's way more solidly built than that "nifty fifty" available now- hands down, and I find the focus ring to be nice and smooth (and a good width). I have read a lot of reviews about the 'weird' f-stops available on this lens. Everyone who mentioned that failed to mention that you actually have more control of the diaphragm, you can actually gently adjust your aperture between f-stops manually! I think this is wonderful feature that is very little discussed. I have a tight budget - For Primes, I mostly rely on manual lenses with canon eos adapters. So to find a nice affordable modern glass in this focal length and better quality... 5/5 DatArtMan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Love this lense

    4/5 Leslie Trent (West Virginia) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vivitar 85mm f/1.8 Portrait Lens (for Canon EOS Cameras) (Electronics) Love this lense. Only pitfall is that its manual but for the price. It is great. The ease of use of the lens was very easy. Took bunches and bunches of pictures of my dog with this just haven't gotten brave enough to use it in a photoshoot. Afraid of camera shake.

    Best lens i have ever bought

Most of what i film is at night with ambient or available light and i have to say that this lens is above and beyond any expectations. Good price for the product, strong build and smooth focus.

    Vivitar 2.2x telephoto lens extender

    1/5 Sattik - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vivitar 58MM 2.2x Professional Telephoto Lens (Electronics) I bought the lens with expectations. But, it was a waste of money. The auto focus doesn't work with the lens. It is sharp only at the center but your entire image is spoiled. there are bluish hue all over the image where ever the color contrast is present and it fades away. My base lens produces crisp imsges, at 300mm, but it is not able to do even that at 70mm. even at the price, its not a good buy. and Vivitar claims for HD quality. ha ha ha...

    Not usable.

    I bought this 2.2x lens on ebay, though it’s even cheaper here if you qualify for free shipping. I’d been seeing it run around $30 dollars and thought I’d give it a try, though I didn’t expect it to work well. I bought it at $13 and free shipping. That wasn’t much to lose, and if it worked at all, great. I should have paid more attention to the reviews on Amazon though. Because when I tried it on my 55-250mm zoom the images were really milky and hazy and blurry. Even worse than I expected. I tried it with different apertures and waited until the Fall because I thought humidity might be a factor. But it was still very disappointing. If I were a camera brand, I would not want to put my name on this. I tried it on smaller lenses to see if I could figure it out and move back up. Did this with my 18-55mm zoom. Got rid of a lot of the milkiness, but when I transferred the images to computer they still weren’t anything I’d want to look at.

    Vivitar 500mm f/8 Telephoto Lens For Nikon Digital SLR Camera - Fixed

    Photography (Vivitar)

    Rating (29 reviews):
    (3.6/5)
    Vivitar

    Reasonably good lens, good deal for the price.

    I received the Vivitar 500mm f/8 Telephoto Lens for Nikon today. It is pretty much what I expected. It is a manual lens which means that you can only use the camera in manual mode so no auto-focus and it does not tell the camera the f/stop or other information. That isn't a problem as I will use it primarily for astronomy pictures and it will join my other manual lenses I use for that task. The lens is really more like a small telescope having what appears to be a single (probably doublet) lens at the front. It does not contain multiple lens elements as you would find in other telephoto lenses. The primary problem with the lens is caused by this lens design and that is that the colors do not focus all at the same point. This leads to blue/violet 'fringes' around bright objects or even dark objects against a bright background. I took a few pictures as soon as I received it and in general they looked pretty good. However, on one particular image that was of a black bird on a... 4/5 Z-Field (North Texas) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Value for price

    3/5 Mark L. Gardner - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vivitar 500mm f/8 Telephoto Lens For Nikon Digital SLR Camera - Fixed (Electronics) The lens is about what I expected. It is heavy, slow, totally manual and not terribly sharp. BUT for the price it is a good value. Seems solidly built. If you don't mind the fussing of a manual lens and you want something longer to play with I would say go for it.
