Focus Lens

  • Excerpt: This lens only deepens the focal length. It will not let you zoom further. I was a bit confused about this before I purchased it.
  • Pros: Easy To Use

Great lens

Richard D. Bradford, Amazon

  • Summary: Clear optics is worth every penny. I don't even know why cheap ~$50 lenses are made. Don't get them. This one is perfect for my needs and the image stays clean and focused.

Works well

  • Excerpt: Bought the lens adapter to record a presentation where I knew I would be far away from the speaker. The adapter worked great for bringing me in close to the presenter and it worked very well in the florescent lighting as well.<br /><br />Well worth the money I think.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Interface With Camcorder, Have To Carry It With You, Improves Performance, Quality Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

telephoto pics and video is great

danny e leedy, Amazon
29 August 2013
  • Summary: I use the lens on my Canon HF G10 and my 58mm telephoto lenses for capturing my grandson's 9 year old (4th grade) football games. Video and pics are clear and precise even at 1.5 magnification. Coaches are telling me to broaden the video field, before the lens they were telling me to provide closeups???? Very good product at a great price.

The lens is exactly what it says it is.

  • Excerpt: The lens performed as expected. You will not be able to use it for wide shots as the video will have a barrel effect. Works good for those shots when the optical zoom of my Vixa G10 was just not enough. I tried digital zoom without the lens and it was image was obviously blurry.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction

Excellent, But Expensive

Maha-Guru, Amazon
10 June 2013
  • Summary: Well, is there some truth in "you get what you pay for"? Maybe. I went for a cheapo $40.00 teleconverter, but was so frustrated with vignetting, that there was no option but to go for this one. I have 2 camcorders that I have tested this with: - XF 100 - VIXIA HF G10 The product is made by Canon, and obviously, the optics are excellent. Here is my take on the product in detail: - Functionality - Excellent. No vignetting!

Great Lens

L. payne "Astrotech5000", Amazon

  • Summary: As expected this lens needs a tripod. As the image is magnified, so is the motion. I was worried that the quality of the lens might be degraded by adding so much glass to it, but Canon makes great lenses and if you hold the camera still it will create an image that is as clear as the original lens. The screw in mount is machined well and is easy to install and remove.

good for special long shots

Gary, B&H Photo
19 May 2013
  • Excerpt: The first thing I did when I got my new lens is put on my Canon XF100 and go out to shoot long shots. I videoed birds in an estuary, a long shot of an oncoming bicycle from when it was 100 yards away right up to the tripod, and a similar shot of an approaching train. It created a great effect because the subject grows huge in the frame.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable

Don't bother

Douglas, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Extremely dissapointing. The fact that you see the barrel of the extenderuntil you are about halfway through your zoom is a serious drawback.
