First of all, tele-multipliers or tele-converters do not have the greatest optics in the world, and are usually fine for close up images but not much else. Secondly, they do restrict the amount of light coming into the camera which could interfere with the internal metering. Third, you have additional lens surfaces to get dirty. To fix the problem, start with the easy one, and clean all lens surfaces meticulously with a soft lint free cloth. If that doesn't fix it, try shooting non-moving objects in brightly lit areas. If you are still getting blurry pictures, try using the tele-converter on a close-up image within the focal length of the lens combination. If that doesn't work, give the teleconverter to someone you don't like and go buy a good quality 50-135mm zoom lens. Vivitar, Sigma, or other similar lenses are good quality and are very reasonably priced.

I once had an Olympus sp500uz and I used it until I simply wore it out. I don't think you can change lenses in that camera so you can't just go out and buy another lens.

That means that if you want to increase the focal length of the lens, your only option is to use a doubler such as you describe. Unfortunately, that may impact the ability of the autofocus to work.

However, if the shot is in focus on the screen, the picture in the camera should be in focus as well. If you can't get it to focus clearly before you shoot, then the 2X lens is not compatible with your camera.

If it is in focus and the pictures are not clear, there's another problem and it might be worthwhile to contact Olympus technical support to see what they advise.

All that being said, I recall that the sp500uz had an excellent and exceptionally long focal length zoom telephoto that could be adjusted quickly with the push of a button and the autofocus would quickly adjust to the zoom. You may just be asking the camera to do more than it is capable of.

How do i attach the my zeikos 52mm HD Dslr MC AF 2x telephoto lens to my nikon d90?


You don't. The Zeikos attaches to the front of lens with a 52mm filter thread, which then attaches to the D90. If you have the 18-55mm lens, for example, this will fit onto the front of that lens, effectively converting it to a 36-110mm lens. If you have the 18-105mm lens, this won't fit onto it.
This device is really intended for use with cameras that don't have interchangeable lenses. With your D90, you're much better off using another lens instead of putting this onto the front of another lens.

I purchased a Vivitar 2.2x lens for my Lumix DMC FZ18 camera & I'm getting a lot of distortion. Suggestions?


It's a cheap(ish) generic screw on lens multiplier and so compatibility with anything it's screwed onto is a matter of pot-luck, especially as the conversion factor is so high.

There is nothing you can do, other than to try alternative brands (preferably not exceeding 1.4x) or to obtain the expensive Panasonic version which is designed to be compatible with your camera. Even the official product will produce some distortion (usually barrel distortion) and most likely a fair bit of chromatic aberration. It's just usually less adverse than with the generic products.

How much light loss in f stops


For your future reference, perhaps this will help:
F-number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Essentially, the f/stop system is an idealistic approach that tries to provide a reference number(f/stop) wherein the light transmission thru a lens is a constant. In reality, there is light loss in a lens element system that is not accounted for in the f/stop method because, usually, the loss is insignificant. In lenses with many elements, such as a cinematic zoom lens, this can be more than 1 f/stop.

Need a manual for sony 8/500 relex lens


A mirror lens is a specialty lens. It's a huge telephoto, but shrunk by using mirrors (hence the name). It's a fixed F8 aperture, no auto focus. Looking on the web, this seems to be AF but from a number of uses it "hunts" as due to the tiny depth of field. It's for photographing items at least 300 feet away. The depth of field is tiny (area in focus). You may have to to turn off any "program" modes. This lens will work in "auto" mode where the camera chooses the shutter speed. A tripod is almost a must. Since you have a digital camera... go out and try it... just delete the out of focus and blurry ones.

Using the lens


As long as the lens mount is compatible with the Olympus e410, you can use this lens.

It will only be limited by what features are supported through the camera body - I suspect that you will have to do everything manually.

Good luck.
