Only works well in manual focusPosted .
I thought I would try it out because the price wouldn't break me. I was surprised because I was expecting it to work better in auto focus. I tried a few different lenses on a D7100 and also a D750, with the same results. It did not perform well at all in auto, although in manual the sharpness was good. It does lose 2 full stops, so low light can be a challenge as well. If there's lots of movement with what you're shooting such as sports or wildlife you may end up wanting to take this thing off your camera and seriously consider smashing it out of frustration. If you feel you really have the need for one, then you may be better off spending the extra cash on a Nikon teleconverter but I'm not sure how well those work. I would opt for the correct lens instead.No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great Teleconverter for all Nikon LensPosted .
This Teleconverter is $300 less than Nikon official version, but offers more versatility as it can go on any Nikon Lens, vs the Only Select few lens the offical Nikon 2x and 1.4x, and 1.7x Teleconverters cause Nikon rear lens elements pushes in for some Zoom lens. Aka. you have to buy more expensive lens to get zoom..i use it on 24-120 f4,50 f1.8,Nikon 200-500 f5.6 to get 1,000mm f11, only con is pro cameras and newer auto focus is rated to f8 so Autofocusing is slower and hunts sometimes if not enough light,so Manual focus if the math for 2x is above f8, but you still get VR(if lens has it) which is worth it and why i bought for Professional NFL,NBA,Wildlife use.I would recommend this to a friend

Great Piece that doesn't break the bank!Posted .
Due to the upcoming solar eclipse, I realized I needed to extend the reach of even my largest lens to get good photos. After searching, for a while I found that this had good reviews, but didn't cost as much as the others with similar ratings. I am not disappointed in the least! I noticed no loss of quality when I attached it to my 35 or my 300. It is clear and pretty solid, for the price I don't think you could beat it. The only real complaint I have, is that my old 8lb 300mm lens wiggles a bit when mounted to it, I don't think the connection is milled perfectly, but it is surely good enough to not be noticed with lighter lenses. Overall, 5/5 because It does the job well and doesn't break the bank.I would recommend this to a friend

Asked by walt.
- A:Answer What's up, Walt?? I know tamron makes a few decent "ultra-zooms" , as you describe. Specifically, I have a Tamron, 28-300 on my Canon. You've got to have enough light, though - or crank-up the ISO sensitivty, if your camera can take it. Those ultra-zooms, unless you buy a VERY expensive one - often don't yield "tack - sharp" images - I think it's because there's so many lens-elements involved. Lenses 18-200mm ; 28-200 ; also 18-300 ; 28-300 can be found, by the mfg you name. You just gotta look-around...

- A:Answer Yes, VR (vibration reduction) built into a lens still works when that lens is used with a teleconverter.

Asked by Margo.
- A:Answer Margo, this "tele-extender" - in effect - DOUBLES lens focal length, as you know... The problem, then, is that - while you get a bigger image - you DECREASE the effective "light-gathering power", that-is (like in telescopes) the "F - RATIO" is doubled. I don't mean to "talk-down" to you, if you already know this. Simple fact is, that you will DOUBLE the size of the image - but that DECREASES the light reaching your sensor (FILM, in the old days) - by a FACTOR OF 4 . In camera-talk, you "lose 2 f-stops". If your lens is F/ 4, then this 2X "doubler" makes the F-ratio F/ 8 . So - for "action-shots" you'd better have a "big glass" lens , or else be shooting in bright light ... Good Luck, I've been there... -Mark T
