If the vivitar 2x is not autofocus, then you will obviously give up 90% of the cameras focus, metering and flash functions. All 2x lenses loose 2 stops of light so the f2.8 lens will now be f 8. If that is acceptable then it may be worth the few dollars to get double the power for the lens

Nikon Teleconverter


You could probably use either a 1.4 x or a 2 x, depending on how much you wanted to increase the focal length of your lens. A 1.4 x would give you a range of 98-420, a 2 x would give you a range of 140-600.
Having said that, teleconverters are not usually recommended for use with zoom lenses, and you would lose one stop with the 1.4 x, two stops with the 2 x, thus necessitating longer exposures. Also, with the increase in focal length comes an increased probability of camera shake being more apparent, due to the increased magnification. In your position, I would attempt to get closer to the subject, using a teleconverter as a last resort if this is not possible.

I bought a kit with a Canon EF 75-300 f/4-5.6 lens with a Vivitar Series 1 2XMC4 AF teleconverter. I have a Canon 6D. The camera reads F00 when hooked up and says there is no lens attached.


The teleconverter lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera, or to let the lens communicate with the camera. You have to use the manual exposure mode and set the exposure yourself.

D2x won't work when a lens is attached


Did you try to reset the camera to factory settings? Won't work, does that mean everything stays out? Or you can't make a picture and still view pictures you made? Is there an error in the display, like fEE. That would be caused by the sensor, looking if your diaphragmatic setting on the lens is locked on the smallest aperture. Could be dust, or worse the sensor is damaged. Then the camera must be repaired.

I am thinking of using Vivitar Series One 28-300mm f/4.0-6.3 Auto Focus for Nikon D2x...! Does this have aimage stabilisation motor in it?? Do u recommend this for the camera??


I don't think it has image stabilization. If you use a tripod, stabilization is not important. If not, you can increase your shutter speed to compensate. Vivitar makes fair quality lenses, but you have a Nikon. I presume that you bought your Nikon because you want top quality images. If it is a matter of money, I would wait until I could afford a Nikon lens. As an alternative, consider used Nikon lenses. I generally carry a 10-24 mm DX, 28-105mm and 70-300 mm and a 60mm macro when I travel and it works well.

My Nikon D2x is having shutter problems, HELP!


the only time i have ever seen this on my D2x is when the lens isnt snapped all the way on. but since you have tried several lenses, i am sure they are snapped on. this leads me to believe something is wrong with one of the contacts on the camera where the lens snaps on--check them to be sure they are springing out and clean. check the owners manual to see if there is another cause for this message.

Apperture on Nikon d2x doesn't close after 3.5-4.5


You need to "lock" the lens at the smallest aperature. With the lens removed from the camera, rotate the ring to the smallest aperture, which is the largest number (like 16 or 22). Next to that number you will see a small slide switch. Move that switch. It loocks that ring at that setting.

Remount the lens and try.

Use of teleconvertres


Teleconverters are not recommended with variable aperture and slow zoom lenses. Since there is an additional element, the effective max. aperture will get reduced to about f/8-11. So it is not worth the money.

Gluing rubber cover on rear door of Nikon D2x


i have little faith that this can be done, as i tried doing it with epoxy - my favorite, never-fails adhesive - and it didn't work. i think if you can get your camera to Nikon, though, they'll replace the whole door with another whose rubber isn't likely to come off. i read someone online saying they took their D2x in for some other repair and Nikon replaced the door without even asking him...whether they did it for free, i don't know, but i'd hope so, since the rubber falling off in the first place is really their fault.
