Summary: Got if for my Lumix. It has a sturdy housing and great glass. It takes clear pictures. You will have tunneling, because of the adapter, but then you just zoom, which you will have to anyway, and all is well. Highly recommend.
good image quality but inconvenient vignetting on Lumix FZ200
1 December 2014
Summary: On a Lumix FZ200, images are relatively sharp with few aberrations (particularly compared to Olympus TCON-17 and Ricoh TC-200M), but vignetted at relatively high zoom, compared to Canon TC-DC58A or Sony VCL-HGD1758.
Summary: + very low of distorsi + no have cromatic abrasion until zoom 1200mm in my sx50hs its absolutly defferent with chieve china product + very sharp colour + best of the best in conversion lens, only this teleconversion still in my dry box neather else have sold out - dificult to found adapter to using...
Summary: This lens , only available second hand, works well with Panasonic DMC-FZ series of cameras using adapter DMW-LA5 and a 55-50 step-down ring (Peramaal), extending zoom by 50%. In good light it can be used without a tripod, and produces a 900 mm equivalent (36 times) zoom.
Summary: Como todo lo NIKON Muy Bueno, pero Muy Costoso, en este caso, la calidad del lente es magnifica!! y las imagenes que se logran son maravillosas, especialmente si se es aficionado a la fotografia de paisajes, el unico aspecto que no compensa es el costo excesivo del lente, el cual, para esta gama de...
Great lens for the Panasonic Lumix FZ28, FZ35, FZ38

Summary: This is a fantastic lens that provides sharp images with great contrast. The lens is lightweight, looks nice and includes a hood. This one is better than an Olympic TCON-17. Works with the Panasonic Lumix FZ28, FZ35, FZ38 cameras when used with a DMW-LA3 adapter.
Summary: This TC performs very well on the FZ series of Panasonic cameras. The better TC would be the TC-E17ED but that is much heavier and much more expensive. This is the better deal. However, I see that there are some rather high prices being asked.
Summary: In the Lens Menu, the CoolPix 8700 has a setting for "Telephoto." However, all this seems to do is extend the built in lens to maximum; it does not adjust your shutter speed or ISO for you. If you try to shoot on "Programmed Auto" with the TC-E15ED, you'll get blurred pictures even with a tripod.
Summary: You'd better have tripod ready when purchased this telescope. It's powerful zoom factor 420 mm(equal 35 mm camera). In order to get a good picture from this telescope you must learn how to control exposure and speed shot. It's an excellent tool for Nikon Coolpix 5700.
