Excerpt: I use this for wildlife video and it is a wonderful lens. It is easy to put on, and at 1.5 magnification gets the wildlife much closer and very clear. I'm very happy with this lens for my Canon HF G30 camcorder.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Interface With Camcorder, Improves Performance, Quality Construction
Excerpt: I had been wanting to increase the telephoto on my XF100 for sometime. I finally ordered this lense and am very pleased with the results that I have been getting from the lense. Everything I have shot both in low light and high light has come out perfect. Having read some of the other reviews everyone seems to talk about the vignette that the lense has if you zoom-out.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Interface With Camcorder, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Quality Construction
Summary: I love this product! Works as advertized. Highly recommended. There is a vignette when you pull out to a wide shot, but when you go to the Camera Menu and play around with the Teleconverter (Telezoom) options, you can reduce the size of the vignette circle.
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. Well worth the money I think.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Interface With Camcorder, Have To Carry It With You, Improves Performance, Quality Construction
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
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.
