Product Description

Product Description

This innovative product is a great addition to your SLR camera collection. Weighing just 185g, Lens2scope unlashes the power of your camera lenses and turns them into powerful spotting scopes in a click. With advanced ED, APO glass and aspherical elements used in modern camera lenses, you can take full advantage of the high quality optics and enjoy pin-sharp observation with Lens2scope.

Having a quality spotting scope and camera lens in your camera bag without all the extra weight is now possible. When attached to your camera lens, the spotting scope magnification becomes the focal length divided by 10. For example, when attached to a 70-300mm tele-zoom lens, the combination creates a 7-30X zoom spotting scope. Macro lenses can also be used: With a 1:1 magnification macro lens, it becomes a 25X loupe with a right-erected image.

I've tried this adapter with two manual focus Nikkor lenses. The image quality is good. Better than you'd get with an inexpensive telescope but not as good a £500 spotting scope. Worth the price if you already have the lenses.

With my 200mm F4 AI-S the image is very bright. Almost too bright on a sunny day. Unfortunately the adapter doesn't allow the lens to stop down. The removable tripod adapter is sturdy enough for the 200mm F4 AI-S. It might not be strong enough for the older, heavier non-AI 200mm Nikkor.

Overall the 200mm F4 makes a very versatile 20x spotting scope.

20x isn't enough for most of what we use a spotting scope for, so most of the time we use it with my 1969 Nikkor-H 300mm F4.5. This lens weighs 1.1kg but has built in tripod mount. The colour fringing I see on the 200mm is somewhat worse with the 300mm.

Focusing with these well made lenses is easy.

The Lens2scope provides an extremely bright and high quality image with any Nikon telephoto lens. An essential purchase if you have any spare long lenses lying around. The only criticism is that, as the tripod bracket is insubstantial, the Lens2scope works better with lenses that have built-in brackets.

Works very well - it's strongly built and has a metal camera mount. I feel it is best kept for use on a lens that has its own tripod foot, since the adapter's foot is detachable and I wouldn't trust it to support an expensive lens. It's probably harder to focus accurately via the attached lens than with a dedicated spotting scope, but it takes up very little room in a camera bag and comes into its own when the light is too dim for photography. Overall a great purchase that does all that I had hoped.

I was a bit sceptical about the quality of these until my brother bought one for his Sony DSLR (at over £100). When I tried it though I was mightily impressed and have other Kenko products which have proved to be of very good quality.

I am a wildlife photographer first and an observer second. I normally use a pair of binoculars for viewing birds etc but on many occasions the reach just isn't long enough and sometimes the light or conditions make photography not worthwhile. So, I purchased the Nikon version of the Lens2scope (angled, which I like) and have used it several times on a long lens and I love it.

It does need to be used on a tripod as any vibration reduction technology will not work when the lens is off the camera and I wouldn't trust the tripod foot on the scope for anything other than a very light lens. What I do like, though, is when the lens is mounted on a tripod and I have taken my photo, I can just remove the camera body and attach the scope, leaving the lens in situ. The lens cap for the scope fits perfectly onto the camera for sealing the body from dust. I like the carry case too a
and the whole lot is so light that it fits into my camera bag with no noticeable extra weight.

I had been thinking of buying a dedicated scope but, when used on my Tamron 150-600 lens, I have a zoom scope which is ideal form my needs. Great for lunar observing too and the manual focusing is easy and quick (sometimes I'll locate the subject at the lower end of the zoom then zoom in to the required length and refocus). I've found that I often don't need the full zoom my lens gives and that around 300mm-350mm gives great results. A converted sceptic fully recommends this Lens2scope.

Bought this to save me having to carry a separate spotting scope in my already heavy camera rucksack. Great for say use in the house looking into garden. Worked a treat with my 70-300 or 300 prime. Problem is it just feels a bit flimsy and I was worried that it wouldn't stand upto the abuse that a spotting scope gets. Also as I wear glasses i just found the eypiece not ideal

So if you are ill and housebound and want to sit on your patio and zoom in on birds in your garden with higher magnification this is ideal. However if you are going to be trekking for approx 7 miles with it slung over your shoulder, get a scope instead as when you bang it against a tree whilst wrangling with your slr with a 150-500 bigma attached you wont be upset you've just broke your 300 prime.

I sent it back got a refund and bought an opticron 15-45 X 50 from Argos in the sale for £50 and is far more robust and similar optical clarity with the bonus of a bag and being waterproof and weighs about haf a kg plus if i drop it in a lake by accident I wont be that upset.

You have the lenses and your thinking about buying binoculars. Than this is a no-brainer. Small and easy to use.

Read about the old Nikon model years ago, long out of production. Useful and good quality. Observing though 300 to 18mm lenses. Clean image. Aberrations more obvious especially for wide angle than they seem through camera. Perhaps because you are not taking a picture, but concentrating on the view. 300mm made a good 30x spotter. Macro gives long distance microscope. Haven't tried with a reversing ring or male-male coupler yet. Admittedly an indulgence, but I do like having the full Lego set to play with
