HASH(0x8aa04030) out of 5 stars Warning: unless you are zoomed in, this makes everything a black circle. 17 Oct. 2013
By Tony Fabris - Published on Amazon.com

I attached this lens to my Olympus TG-2 camera.

The lens works to double the amount of zoom that my camera has available to it. However, if I do not have my camera actually "zoomed in", then the lens makes the entire photograph a big black field with a tiny circle of image in the middle.

In other words: You can *only* attach this lens for the precise moment when you want to take photos of distant objects. You must remove the lens at all other times. You cannot just leave the lens on all the time and zoom out when you want a wide shot. If you do that you'll just get a big black circle all the time.

To be even clearer: Here is the step-by step of what will happen when you buy this lens:

- Install the lens.
- Turn on the camera.
- Oh my God, it's just a big black circle. What's wrong?
- Zoom in.
- As you zoom in, the circle gets bigger and bigger until finally the entire picture is visible in the viewfinder.
- Ah, that's better.
- Turn off the camera.
- Turn it back on.
- Oh my God, it's just a big black circle. What's wrong?
- Repeat.
- Then you decide you want to take a picture of something that is nearby.
- Zoom out.
- Oh my God, it's just a big black circle.
- Remove the lens.
- Can take your close up picture.
... etc.

HASH(0x8b2bbd08) out of 5 stars Important Clarification About this Lens! 19 Aug. 2014
By SpartanA2 - Published on Amazon.com
A great lens if you know how it is meant to be used.
The lens is a teleconverter lens, not a telephoto. The Black circle is the normal result when the camera is not at full optical zoom. This lens is designed to boost the full optical zoom of the camera lens. The teleconverter increases the optical zoom ratio by 6.8x allowing for dramatic close-ups and crisp details without changing the aperture setting. In the 35mm camera format, this is equivalent to extending the focal length from 100mm to 170mm.

HASH(0x8b3af45c) out of 5 stars Great addition to my TG-2 20 April 2014

Works well, easy to adapt and setup. Have heard some issues with a small circle when zoomed out, and found the instructions bleak on this. However you can minimize this issue by going into set up and entering accessories or something like that and setup the camera with the use of this adapter lens, which reduces this issue and gives you greater zoom capabilities. I recommend this product

Carried this lens with me on a back packing trek to Philmont Scout Ranch in northern NM. I was fantastic for capturing far off wildlife, capturing the scouts as they did rock climbing. I have have also used it with the Macro setting with awesome results as well.

HASH(0x8b1107a4) out of 5 stars Easy to use 9 July 2013
By Jimmy Massengill - Published on Amazon.com

This lens is just what I needed to get that extra close shot with my TG-2 camera. Simple to attach to the camera and then the camera has the settings to make that close up shot look great! I would recomend this lens & or camera as well As both to anyone thats on the go out in the eliments on a hiking or camping trip, or on the go with the kids on the baseball field. This is truly a great set up without the worry of the water, dust or an occasional drop leaving you without a camera. The TG series is truly a "TOUGH" Camera and this lens looks to be as tough as the Camera is!
