For the price, I wasn't expecting a super quality product, which could compare to a brand telephoto lens. But I found this lens completely unusable. I was hoping to boost a Canon 55-250 mm zoom lens with this accessory, but once attached, all photos are milky. I knew that auto-focus wouldn't work, but it is impossible to get a clear picture even in the sunlight, with manual focus. This lens adds an awful lot of pincushion distortion to the photo, and a good amount of chromatic aberration as well, even if attached on a Canon 18-55 mm (kit) lens.
I bought the lens with expectations. But, it was a waste of money. The auto focus doesn't work with the lens. It is sharp only at the center but your entire image is spoiled. there are bluish hue all over the image where ever the color contrast is present and it fades away.

Please look for some other zoom lens extender.

That wasn’t much to lose, and if it worked at all, great. I should have paid more attention to the reviews on Amazon though. Because when I tried it on my 55-250mm zoom the images were really milky and hazy and blurry. Even worse than I expected. I tried it with different apertures and waited until the Fall because I thought humidity might be a factor. But it was still very disappointing. If I were a camera brand, I would not want to put my name on this. I tried it on smaller lenses to see if I could figure it out and move back up. Did this with my 18-55mm zoom. Got rid of a lot of the milkiness, but when I transferred the images to computer they still weren’t anything I’d want to look at. There was...
