Showing 1-10 of 13
Excellent tool for the job
6 March 2015
Summary: Got this lens on the recommendation of a shooter friend of mine. It was tough to get the adapter, but once I did I was rewarded with excellent pictures. It is large and heavy. It is bigger and heavier than my Lumix, but I just put in my camera bag until I need it.
Summary: I am only an amateur photographer who enjoys fooling around with his great Nikon P5100 point & shoot to accomplish all sorts of useful jobs and entertainments. I wanted this lens as much to experiment with as to accomplish anything in particular but was pleasantly surprised by its excellence.
Summary: I got this item wondering how good a converter lens might actually be, I expected degradation in the image because of the additional glass. I also wondered why Nikon would make me pay more by using ED glass.
Summary: . . . but once you adjust to the fact that you can not use the view finder, you will be pleasantly surprised at how good this lens is. Nikon has always been the leader with their lenses and this baby keeps up the tradition.
Summary: When I first saw tis lens I was excited about the possibility of converting my coolpix from a 38-115mm to a 114-345mm lens. Since this lens front mounts to the existing lens it vignettes at the wider end of the lens all the way to approx 85mm. Leaving you with an effective approx.
Summary: As you would expect from a Nikon lens it's wonderful. What keeps it from getting 5 stars from me is that when using it with a P5100 camera the internal zoom is almost useless because if you put your camera on no zoom at all you see a circle in the middle of the screen.
Summary: I take anywhere from 100-500 pictures in a month. i have used this lens several time. if you are looking to get close to you subject from far this one works great. picture quality is amazing and really is worth the money if you take enough pictues.
