Default Need Help Choosing a TeleConverter for an A80-Advice please

From what I've read I'm down to choosing between the Nikon TC-E2 and the Tiffen MegaPlus 2x.

Seems both weigh about the same. Obviously the Tiffen is less expensive. Am I correct in that I would need a special adapter ring to conform to the Nikon's threads (28mm)

Advice?


Thanks much!

Mike

The Nikon TC-E2 is crystal clear and you won't get hardly any degredation of photo quality.

The Tiffen is nice, but makes the image a little fuzzier--but it's far cheaper than the Nikon. So, it boils down to how much you're willing to pay!

Good luck

Thanks! What model lens adapter do you need for the Nikon (w/A80) ?

TIA

Mike

As far as I know, the canon a80 only has 2 adaptors. A 52mm one and a 37mm. I've used both on my a80. Get the 37mm one. It does not block your flash and red eye assist light like the 52 mm does. I guess if you only shoot outdoors it might be ok. The 37mm has minor vigenting(spelling?) at regular lens extension but not at 2x or 3x optical extension.
