Summary: I had previously bought another tele lens for my H7 camera but was really dissapointed with the low quality pictures i was getting out of it. Then i figured i'd spend a little more getting something from sony themselves and decided to get this one. After i took my first picture i just stored the cheaper lens i had bought and to date have no clue as to its whereabouts.
Summary: This lens was a gift I purchased for my daughter. She has one daughter and two sons who are very active in sports and she takes many pictures. At this point I know she has used the lens many times and is very happy with the pictures she has taken.
Summary: OK, if I were a 16 year old girl instead of a 59 year old man the subject line of this review might be "OMG! OMG!" I cannot get over how well this teleconverter works with my DSC-H50 with its Super Steady Shot! I am not a professional, but I am an avid amateur. I own several 35mm bodies and lenses up to 400mm plus 2x and 3x converters. I am very familiar with the problems of taking photos with longer zoom lenses with and without tripods.
Summary: Without the Telepohto the effective 35mm focal length is 465mm at 8.1 megapixel but it becomes an astounding 790mm with it. Want to get really crazy? When the image size is set to 5 megapixels, the camera can zoom to 18x. When set to 3 megapixels, it is set to 23x. In the 2-megapixel widescreen mode, the H7 can zoom to 25x. At the smallest 640 x 480-pixel size, users can zoom up to 76x! Then add the Telephoto - good luck getting a blur-free pic though.
Summary: I bought this conversion lens for my husband for our anniversary in Aug. We have a Sony DSC-H7. At first he did not think it really did much. But then we started to take some pictures and they were amazing....really neat flower pictures and deer. The other night there was a full moon coming up over the mountains. He took pictures of it and you could even see the trees on the mountains.
Summary: I purchased this lens for my Sony DSC-H50. Adding another 10x to my 15x optical zoom is really quite beneficial. I like to take bird pics on my property and that additional bit can really make the shot. I wish I had it when I had my dove nest! I have always had good experiences with Sony lenses for the quality of the manufacturing as well as the quality of the glass, and this is no exception.
Summary: Just got back from an Alaskan vacation and the lens worked well, it gave me that extra distance for the wildlife photos I wanted. I have also used it for some action shots from a soccer field sideline and I am happy with the results. I use it with a DSC-H50.
