I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 camera. With this lens there is vignetting when used for minimum telephoto effect, but one is not likely to use this lens attachment this way. When increased so the vignetting goes away you get something like the camera's full telephoto mode without the attachment. However much greater telephoto effect is possible. You will almost certainly need to use a tripod for such shots. I find the focusing somewhat unreliable at full telephoto effect with this lens, otherwise I would have given it 5 stars. I am attaching some pictures. One without the attachment, one showing the vignetting, a third without vignetting and the rest at the extreme telephoto effect. All are from the same location (on a tripod), the last two are pointed at something perhaps more revealing. (It comes with a pouch and a good lens cleaning cloth -- nice bonus.)
Very nice lens. Definitely worth the $$, as opposed to spending a fortune on a telephoto lens. My only negative comment is that is not a lens that will attach quickly. If you plan to use it often, make sure to keep that in mind.
First I like the price. Amazon Prime Delivery almost never fails and product is new. I got the 67mm size for my Nikon 18-300 zoom lens. Now the bad, the product totally destroys image from my 18-300 nikon lens which is reasonably sharp for high zoom range. Severe chromatic aberration and lack of sharpness even with tripod and 1/1200 sec shutter speed at f8 which is sweet spot on my nikon lens, made images look terrible. Better cropping and enlarging subjects in photo editing program without using this add-on lens. Will probably send it back or give it away.
