Summary: Eight years ago I wrote a review for this product under the name of Kenneth P. Wert. It appears as the second most popular review and was the first Amazon review of the VCL-DH1758. I stumbled across it, (I had forgotten I had written it), when I recently bought a Sony DSC-H2 and looked for the accessory lenses for it. I can no longer edit the review. I had to change my user name because of a lost password and email address.
Summary: I have used this teleconverter lens for years with my Sony F717. It is best when used with a tripod since that vintage camera has no image stabilization. Additionally the edges are a little soft. With the F717, this can be taken care of by setting the camera to the max X10 digital zoom so only the center part of the lens is used. In this condition, the photos are at their sharpest.
Summary: The seller was great - delivered the item on time and it was as described. I found this product to be a bit disappointing though. I don't feel it provides very much extra zoom and if anything in the picture moves at all, it is blurry. Perhaps that's on me and due to the way I'm using it, but it didn't end up being as exciting as I thought it would.
Summary: I am unabnle to say if the lens is god or bad, because there needs to be an adaptor ring with it. I was unable to get the correct ring, although the dealer did try. Sorry, but I had to return it. Th return was handled in a timly manner. Thanks.
Summary: Sony siempre se a caracterizado por ofrecer productos de alta calidad y excelente rendimiento, El Vcl- DH 1758 cumple a cabalidad con este enunciado... Lo compre para ser usado en mi camara Fuji HS 20 EXR, al igual que en la de mi hija una Fuji HS 10, ambas poseen un lente de 30 X con un diametro de 58 mm, el resultado es excelente, el Teleconvertidor magnifica por 1.7 X ( por eso es 1758), la potencia del lente, funcionando perfectamente el auto foco de ambas camaras, y...
Summary: I was late in the game on finding a Tele lens for my Sony DSC H50. The official tele lens for DSC H50 is no more available at Sony. Therefore the price of that in the market is very high ($200-$300). So after going through all the reviews on Sony VCL-DH1758 Tele Lens, I purchased this. As this is 58mm and H50 adapter is 74mm, I got a 74-58 mm step-down ring for $4.00 from ebay. This product came on time and I received the step-down ring also.
