Great Teleconverter, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“This teleconverter delivers exactly what it promises, for a reasonable price. The 1.5x conversion gives you a focal equivalent of over 600mm, and with the camera’s built-in image stabilization you can shoot at full zoom without a tripod. Try doing that with a conventional lens… “ – by UCFGRAD1999

Excellent Canon lens! | Rating: ★★★★★
“This lens are excellent!. I have taken excellent pictures of blue birds using my Canon S5 attached to TC-DC58B converter lens…” – by Dr. JSO

so far, so good. | Rating: ★★★★☆
“I love this lense so far and have been able to take some great shots that appear to be crisp and without blur. I had read other reviews that said the edges of the pictures were blurry, I have not had this problem. “ – by smf

1.5 is nice 2.0 would be better | Rating: ★★★★☆
“As a 1.5x converter, this lens deserves 5 stars. The optics appear to be flawless and the quality is good. As far as I know it is the only game in town for extending the range of this family of camera. That is a pity, because these cameras deserve more. “ – by Neil Kirby

“Very good lens. I use this lens on my Canon S5 it get’s the job done plus there is a setting in the camera that recongnizes the lens. Just another canon product doing it’s thing. I highly recommend it you can definitely see a difference and since the S5 is known for having some noise in the pictures when using the digital zoom I just turn that off and shoot straight through the converter for flawless pictures. “ – by T. Summers

Much better that cheaper telephoto lenses | Rating: ★★★★★
“I purchased this lens for my S2IS. The biggest difference is the drastic reduction in purple fringing that I have seen with a non-canon teleconverter lens (purchased by a friend) for his S2IS. Good quality and good material. “ – by A. Iyer

TeleConverter | Rating: ★★★★★
“This takes amazing pictures. I read one review that said that there is a circle when not zoomed in. This is true, however, this lens is made for reaching out far. So if you put it on and don’t want to use the zoom, you are a pinhead.” – by Joseph W. Alves

IT IS A CANON | Rating: ★★★★★
“this lens works well and I can tell that the 1.5 does make a difference. the lens is clear and is multicoated, it does what I want it to, as with any other saying buy quality its what you get. It does have a barrel effect when in close mode but the lens is not made for that,in telephoto the barreling disappears,but it makes a neat effect on close images,almost like a round frame.” – by Greg Kukanich

Love the zoom | Rating: ★★★★★
“We were at the beach and with just the camera zoom of 12x we could not see details on the pier that was way down the beach or much of a boat way out on the horizon. Add the zoom and we could see the people fishing off the pier and a person empting a bucket on the boat. You have to take it off for close things or the lens gives you a nice circle around your subject, but hey it is a zoom lens for stuff you can not see with the camera’s built in lens. “ – by G. Patton
