Question about Phoenix Gold Telephoto 100mm f/3.5 Macro Autofocus Lens for Nikon AF

1 Answer

Problem with Phoenix telephoto lens

The front section (farthest from the camera) is slightly loose and I can hear something rattling inside as I rotate the lens in my hand. Can it be as simple as an internal screw coming loose? Is this a diy fix or should I send it in?

Send it in. Don't even think of trying to fix it yourself. Once you start to disassemble the lens, you will find it impossible to reassemble it yourself. Lenses are often designed so that following the order of disassembly in reverse will not work on reassembly. It is allot cheaper to pay for the repair of your problem then to pay to reassemble a collection of parts.

Do you find that if you slightly loosen your lens you hear a click or something releasing. Then when you lock the lens back into place u can see through the view finder, but only for 1 photo. Then it stays black again?

It sounds like the lens has been dropped or knocked and is misaligned in the guides.
Repair against new lewns is a difficult one as prices vary. I would perhaps consider replacing it with a used one. Before you do borrow a similar lens from someone that has the same mount and ensure it is not also a camera problem.

Need to repair wrist strap attachment on ixus 960


First things first, the small piece that holds the strap, when broken is repairable, but it is best that you dont since there is a strong possibility that the line will give up. the best options you may have to look for are camera pouches that are designed for the camera.

Telephoto lens for digital camera


It will not work because it is the wrong thread size. Here is info on the Olympus TCON-17 lens for the 5050: TCON-17 (1.7X) Telephoto Conversion Lens Extend the capabilities of your digital camera with the TCON-17 Telephoto Converter lens. This telephoto lens will increase the magnification of your subject by 1.7x when your camera lens is set to the telephoto position. This will help you bring in the subject when you can't get closer, for example, shooting sports or concerts. Please see below for additional items required to attach this lens to your camera. The following models require the CLA-1 and 43-55mm Step-Up Ring: C-2000/2020/2040/3000/3020/3030/3040/4000/4040/5050 Zoom ....... The video lens is too small (diameter). If you found one with a 43mm thread and put it on the 5050, you would experience severe vignetting (clipping of the corners of the photo).
