I just located the Sony VCL1558A 1.5x telextender that I bought with an early model Handicam in 1986.

Seems to work reasonably well with the FZ20.

First pic is at full normal zoom, hand-held.

Second is with the extender, also hand-held -- I think it could have been held a somewhat steadier, my hands shake a bit these days.

Both taken from the same spot, distance to the van would have been about 220 yards.

Later on I'll try again with the tripod.

Hi, could you tell me please what is the maximum outside diameter (front diameter) of the barrel? I have the opportunity of buying one, but would like to avoid problems with the infrared AF beamer of my Fuji S5200, and with the pop up flash too. Moreover, how do you judge the multicoating of the lenses? Do you know how old this product is? Thanks for a quick answer to my e-mail address: [email protected]

That really seemed to detract from the clarity of the photo and the shutter speed seemed pretty fast ...does not seem to be a good match to me.......

It would not matter about the lens size as it most likely will not focus under 12 ft or so and the AF illuminater does not work at that distance.
