Sony VCL-DH1758 Tele Conversion Lens User Reviews

Sony quality is tops! | Rating: ★★★★★
“The Sony VCL-DH1758 Tele Conversion Lens is defiantly a piece of quality glass. I was amazed on the image quality using this lens. 1.7x adds just enough for my Canon s-3. “ – by Tom Flaherty

Great Lens! | Rating: ★★★★★
“The Sony VCL-DH1758 Tele Conversion Lens is great, and very much worth the money. I bought it before I went on vacation with a bunch of people. We were in an ocean front home, and porpoise showed up off in the distance. Out of 4 people snapping photos, mine were AMAZING.” – by T. Randall

I was skeptical but it works great!! | Rating: ★★★★☆
“For the price I wondered if the lens would be any good but it works great. I am able to get up close and personal for shots that previously required a good deal of distant. True as some of the other reviewers mentioned you have to zoom out a little to get rid of the vignetting but that is a small price to pay. It is easy to move from one lens to another with this lens and I find that encourages me to use it more. All in all a very good buy.” – by Aussiebat

Very happy. | Rating: ★★★★☆
“I purchaed this as a wedding gift for my sister and new husband who are active amateur nature photographers. They have tried other brands of lenses of this smae nature but have never been as satisfied with the Sony. “ – by Craig Sonis

Does a very good job | Rating: ★★★★☆
“I am very pleased with my lens the sharpness is very good. I am able to crop to half size or less and still print 11 X 14′s with fine detail. “ – by Geezer

Love this TC | Rating: ★★★★☆
“I’m having loads of fun experimenting with this lens. It has brought many hours of joy standing at my windows in the winter photographing the various birds coming and going at the feeders and up in the trees. I never could have gotten the close up shots at the distance I am standing without this lens. Very pleased with the outcome.” – by H. Scism

Excellent Lens | Rating: ★★★★★
“I recently purchased this lens for my Sony DSC-H10 digital camera. I have to say, it is amazing! I’m not sure if it is truly 1.7x, but if not, it is most definitely 1.5x. Either way, it turns my 10x H10 into a 17x camera and does so with little distortion. There is some slight color separation at the edges, but that is to be expected with a zoom of this magnitude.” – by RJ

Also works (with care) on a DSLR!! | Rating: ★★★★★
“I also use an Olympus DSLR with one of its lenses being a 40-150mm kit zoom threaded for 58mm front filters. Hmmmm, I thought, perhaps the Sony VLC-DH1758 might work here as well. Mounting was easy and felt relatively stable. Photo use was outstanding! No tunneling anywhere, sharp clear results with minimal CA, and a nice focal length increase.” – by Oly Guy
