I would not recommend this item.
My guess is that the Nikon is better, but nowhere near significantly better to justify the 8x cost. :-(
The preceding was posted on March 1st, 2011. The following is posted on May 31st, 2011. The Nikon TC referred to is the Nikon TC 20E III ...
--- Just had an opportunity to follow through: A very nice person was selling a Nikon TC 20E III Teleconverter on CL, and allowed me to experiment before buying it. The photos that came out of this experiment are attached to this product's photo list, and the results, I have to say, are disappointing (for the Nikon.) It is about twice the size, and six times the cost, and while it felt more solid, its images were slightly, but not compellingly better than the Vivitar, especially considering the cost difference. So I'm going to be relying on the Vivitar and various sharpening & contrast manipulations while I save my money for a really obscene 400mm lens...
so I would have a way to achieve more distance with the other lenses. The standard
package with the 18-55mm and the 55-200mm work very well with the converter.
The piece is very light and on my camera it fits very snug and no issue with it falling off.
The lenses that fit on the converter are also real snug. I also have a Sigma 70-300mm
which is the main reason why I made the purchase. It equates to a 140-600mm reach
which is better than having it look across the street for distance.
For the most part, it works great for my reasons and since I have used it a lot
in the past month, I would not give it up for anything.
The edges were very blurry like looking down a tunnel of some sort. The little lenses were fine but not good with the larger lenses. Also when I used this with the smaller lenses I would not consider the distance doubled. Its indeed closer but not doubled.
I would not recommend this lens if you expect to use it in AF mode.
However this is where Amazon beats all competition. The return was flawless and fast. I was able to print out a return form and a prepaid shipping label. My credit card was refunded about six hours after the UPS tracking was scanned at our local UPS store. This was only my second return - EVER - with Amazon - but the service exceeded my expectations,
