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 ...

    Excellent value

    0 5/5 Robin - See all my reviews Amazon 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

    Good lens

    0 5/5 Harry "Arabuk" (FL) - See all my reviews This review is from: Vivitar 500MR Lens 500 Mirror Telephoto Lens (Electronics) The 500mm is on Amazon for a bunch of different cameras, I think they are the same lens with a different ring mount. This lens is great for shooting shots across the waterways and at the zoo. With an f/8.0, it works best on a bright sunny day. Use of a tripod helps get sharp pictures. Simply put... I use it more for wildlife & that hard to get close shot when someone or something is in your way, very inexpensive easy to use once ya get used to it, can't complain. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 23, 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 Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    0 4/5 Tab McBlane - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vivitar  4358W 0.43X 58mm Wide Angle Lens (Electronics) If you only need an occasional use of a wide angle lens this will do the job well. If you use it on a fixed prime lens its as simple as screwing it on the lens, if on a telephoto you have to watch zooming out to far as you will see the edges of the lens in the picture making a ring around the photo, zooming in you may get some extra distortion and hazing. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 29, 2013

    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

    Vivitar filter kit

    0 5/5 Pat Harrington - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) 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

    0 3/5 Cody Lambert (United States) - See all my reviews Amazon 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

I wanted to have a a few lenses for my nikon d5100. I have the 18-55 vr and 55-200 vr lens and this set just makes it that more complete for a novice. Both lenses fit and work perfectly on my d5100. Right out of the box, you can feel it's a quality product for the material it was made with. No gripes or complaints about this order. Both items worked per description and that's what matters most. The added bonus is the letter from the president of the company, with a signature... The letter pretty much backs up the product 100%. i'll order from them again, without hesitation, if i need anymore accessories. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 24, 2012
