3.0 out of 5 stars sturdy and easy to use, 4 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
sturdy and easy to use. the tilt handle is at such an angle that it is imposible to look through the viewfinder with the camera mounted. given that it was at a greatly reduced price i can live with it but if i had paid the full price i would be very dissapointed.. i have modified mine using a much shorter handle and i can now use it as i want to.

On my 1000d & 70/300 lens camera can't autofocus as reported by others. Images are sharp with no vignetting When I get the focus right. Does take more time to do it manually but I'm happy eneough with it

3.0 out of 5 stars o.k., 15 Oct. 2011
This lens hood is good for what it does. It shades the lens in low sunshine and eliminates flare, o.k. being solid it takes up a bit of space in the bag, my only real crib is that when its fitted its not possible to rotate the polarizing filter, so the options are polarizing filter and no hood or hood and no filter.

1.0 out of 5 stars no use, 15 Oct. 2011
This looked like a cheap way of getting more out of my lenses. No, its useless, the camera can not autofocus with this attached if at full zoom, so one can manually focus, but the results are not sharp. Even with my 70/300 lens at 100, where it will autofocus the image is not at all sharp or chrisp. advise, dont buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars DW, 29 Oct. 2010
Excellent service, the lense arrived on schedule and came with a free cleaning kit. The lense itself is lovely to use it is very well balanced on my 1000d and has a very smooth action, its fixed at f8 so working exposure is just a matter of playing with the shutter speeds and iso numbers, there is a slight drop in image quality when the 2x converter is attached but to be honest i think that applies to all lenses. the 4 star rating is simply because i feel the depth of field is quite shallow for f8, but this might be the norm for mirror lenses, i havent used one before. all in all i would recommend this lense without any doubt.

Very pleased with this purchase, arrived within the week, well packed and are very well made, the polarizer has a very smooth action and the case is a great way of keeping the filters from damage in the camera bag. Three excellent filters for less than half the price of one from other suppliers. full five stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars DW, 29 Oct. 2010
Cheap remote control, ok two stars for speedy delivery, arrived within the week, pity thats the end of the good news, it just didnt work, the autofocus would operate ok but it wouldnt fire the shutter. For that sort of money its not worth sending back so i opened it up and cleaned off the grease from the contacts. so now it fires the shutter but dosent work the autofocus. For me thats not a problem, i only want a remote for close-up and astro photos so thats all on manual focus anyway..if it fails again i can just cut back the wires and touch them together to fire the shutter...not a total loss but as is said buy cheap buy twice.
