Excerpt: I bought this item thinking it would improve the telephoto performance of the DMC FX70 camera. I was excited and started to test it the same day. I thought there was a mixup because the straight camera shots appeared sharper than the same shot with the the extender attached.
Excerpt: I connected this to an FZ200 with a DMW-LA7 extension tube. Now it looks like I have a monster zoom camera. Really, with the tube, I have a zoom range of about 600 to 1020mm. There are now many superzoom cameras with greater range even if you count only the max magnification.
Excerpt: I use this product to film and take pictures of lobster fishing boats from the shore. I can see easily the fishermen work on their boats from far away. I can nearly read the name of the boat written on it from 1.5 miles! Excellent value for the money.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
