I'm not sure on the quality of that lens. However, I know that Opteka makes what are quite possibly the WORST telephoto lenses available for DSLRs. I wouldn't trust it.

Like you said, I think the best choice for a teleconverter, is the tcon17 from olympus...

Other cheap lenses will probably give you poor quality pictures

I don't and won't never regret the purchase of my TCON17:-)

It worth every cents I paid for it

Oh and for the wide-angle lens, I think you will get some vignetting (dark corners) in your pictures due to the very low magnification (0.45x)...

You have to try it at you local camera shop to be sure !!

Haha, I'm jealous Boily, you and your local camera shops. All I've got is future shop, and they sure don't carry the finer little camera instruments, filters, tcons, all that I need to look online for.

If the camera was within your budget why look to save on the aux. lens?

You can put a VW engine in a Porsch but it won't run like a Porsche?

If you can return those and keep your standards high do so.

Opteka, Digital Optics, Tokina, HiDef, all the lenses you don't want to add to a digicam.

Still, they make nice heavy paperweights.

Morag..There are millions of these type lens out there that were for old style camcorders and 8mm and 16 mm movie cameras. As those type cameras died out the manufacturers were left holding thousands of lens that could no longer be sold ...So people bought lots of them to sell to the unwitting and unknowing digi-cam owners.


Please listen to Boily, Bill and Sintares. Don't buy them as they are only marginaly good for paper weights but almost useless for getting good photos with a Digital Camera!

They are the Yugo's of the lens world. Not quite useless but very dissatisfying!


Buy from a reputable dealer and buy a recomended brand that other folks have tried and found to be of good quality!

I and these other good folks wouldn't steer you wrong here....I hope you know this already. Your friend...


Da Dawg!
