Good lens but does not full width

DSMTC, B&H Photo
2 April 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought this to go with a Sony HXR-NX30u. The lens has good resolution when fully zoomed in, but at wide to moderate zoom, everything is black outside of a small circular area. While this lens fits the camera mount, the actual size of the lens is not sized to match the camera's lens.

Small 2x conversion lens 37 mm

Scott, Amazon
6 December 2014
  • Summary: not as pictured. This is a small 37 mm 2x lens. This product is not a Sony, it never claims to be either, but in the advertised picture it looks like one and if you search for a Sony lens this one comes up.

It vignetts when you zoom out.

9 July 2014
  • Excerpt: The lens looks sharp enough, but I noticed that you can't really zoom through it. When you zoom out (wide), you get the black ring of the lens mount.
  • Pros: Sharp enough

Good addition to an SR-11

Andy M, Amazon
31 May 2014
  • Summary: Gives that little extra reach for my birding pictures. Center lens quality is quite good given the money. Marked it down a star as the 1.7x reach is a tad short and you get vignetting in close.

Good Tele for the NX70U

Juni, B&H Photo
6 October 2012
  • Excerpt: This Tele converter is clear as you have heard in most comments. It works on the NX70U quite well. As expected for converters of this type, it vignettes at about 75% zoom when steady shot is off or set to standard, but it is uesful from about 55% from wide to tele on the W----T scale when steady...
