Wanted to try an extra zoom lens to see if it could improve zoom. Images were blurred so much by this lens that they are useless. Seen fantastic images with same camera and other lenses. I got a better image by stretching a photo not taken with this lens.

I know its a cheap lens so maybe slight blurring would be ok but this would not have been worth bying at a tenth of the price.

Built well and easy to use, but very limited 17 Jan 2010
By Ryan G. - Published on Amazon.com

As another reviewer stated, these lenses are built well. They come with their own pleather carrying case and lens caps, which is nice. If you want, you can even thread a 58mm (or possibly 62mm) filter on the other end. The lenses themselves are "multi-coated" simply meaning that they have an Anti-Reflective coating put on them to reduce ghosting and lens flare. The glass appears very clear to the naked eye, and the overall build quality is excellent.

Now for the performance. If you have a dSLR camera and your only lens is a "standard" 18mm-55mm focal length, this telephoto attachment should work for you. However, the clarity of the lens is less than perfect. Even when focused as perfectly as possible, there is still a little softness to the image, however, it DOES magnify the image as stated. There is also a little bit of chromatic and barrel distortion around the periphery of the image at 55mm (82mm in 35mm equivalent).

If you are trying to use this lens with a longer telephoto zoom lens, you will be disappointed. The focal length of this 2x adapter is shorter than most telephoto zooms. By that, I mean that you can probably focus it with up to about a 100mm (original) lens (give or take). But if you try to use it with a 200mm telephoto zoom, you will find that you cannot focus it at all. In fact, through some experimentation, I discovered that by moving the adapter about 5" away from the end of the camera lens at 200mm, the focus point then moved to the middle of the focus range and I could then take a picture. However, at this distance, the barrel distortion became so great that the picture was unusable. Also, the fuzziness that was mentioned at the shorter focal length lens is also magnified with the longer lens.

In conclusion, I would say that if you only have a "standard" zoom lens, or a short telephoto lens, this adapter will work for you, albeit in a limited manner. If however you are expecting to multiply an already long tele-zoom lens to 300mm or more, don't waste your money.

Waste of $5! 7 Aug 2009
By Rufus Burgess - Published on Amazon.com
This lens is garbage. I included default 15x optical zoom and the telephoto with 15x optical zoom. The end of the video shows how the telephoto looks with 15x optical + 300x digital zoom. Digital zoom is pretty useless to begin with but I included it for those that don't have optical zoom.

I bought this with a WA lens (which works great). However, this lens wasn't even worth the extra $5 over the retail price of the WA lens.

Zeikos 2x Telephoto Lens 9 Feb 2010

The Zeikos 2x Telephoto Lens gave the expected magification, but the image had a blurred, dream like, appearance. It could useful for artistic purposes, but is too blurred to be of much.

horrible ghosting!!!! 26 Sep 2011
By Nathan - Published on Amazon.com

could be a defect in my lense, but the ghosting is so horrible that the lense is not useable for any setting. Not even worth sending back. Will use it as a paper weight and a reminder never to use Zeikos again.

I wish I could give it zero stars 17 Jun 2009
By Bullminator - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
What a waste of money. I bought this against my better judgement as it seemed like a small risk as it is cheaper than other options. It arrived today. I tried it with my Tamron 18-270mm and this thing is useless at every focal length. You get a completely warped picture. You can make out what is in the center 10% of the frame, but it is totally bad quality. I cannot even in good conscience give this for free to someone. It belongs in the trash. It is like throwing fifty bucks in the trash. I wonder if Amazon would take it back. I will call and find out.
