Does anyone recommend a place to get it fixed or is it not fixable? The lens itself looks ok, the housing to the telephoto looks like it might be slightly bent ...

The best way to get it done right after you drop the lense is send it to NIKON NY . They put the lense on a resolution bench test and it make sure the resolution is great ,. This lense is very criticial and it is a must or your wasting your money . The reason is this ., The lense is a wide angle and sometimes photographers have probelms with 17-55mm lenses and sub mirror problems . So its best to be safe than sorry .

I have a Nikon cool pix l320 I have a vivitar telephoto lens on it and when I zoom half way it says to take off the lens cover Plus when I look into the camera it's like looking through a tunnel


Now you know why Nikon telephoto lenses are so expensive and you realise why Vivitar lenses are so cheap. The Vivitar lens is not made for the Nikon, it just fits.

Nikon lenses work as part of the camera itself, not as a screw on accessory.

What is T Mount Telephoto Zoom Lens with 2x Teleconverter


The T-mount is a universal thread developed by Tamron which allows various adapters to couple a lens to a wide variety of camera brands. If a lens is listed as having a T-mount, it means that the lens can be coupled to your camera if you have a T-mount adapter for your camera.

A 2X teleconverter (often called a doubler) enables a lens of a specific to be doubled. For example, the lens referenced above actually is a 650-1300 lens but with the 2X teleconverter the focal length can be doubled to a maximum focal length of 2600.

I have an Opteka 600-1200 telephoto lens which I consider to be a decent lens for its very low price. I also have a doubler which came with my camera kit. That means I can increase the focal length of my lens to 2400 but I cannot imagine any reason to do so. At it's full zoom 1200mm focal length, this lens is very difficult to handle and must be used on a tripod with a remote shutter release.

It is extremely time consuming to focus and must be focused very accurately because it has almost no depth of field. At 1200 mm, the slightest breeze or vibration will cause the picture to go fuzzy from movement.

The lens is also large and does not fit conveniently in a camera bag so it rarely goes with me unless I know for sure that I will need it. It is not particularly good for sports action shots because the action will be over before you are ready to shoot the picture. With very bright light (such as the mid-day sun) and pre-planning and pre-focusing you might be able to get some interesting sports action shots. Say you're at an automobile race and you know a car will be coming into view at a certain spot, you can set up for that spot then trip the shutter when the car pops into view.

All that being said, I think this is a good lens to have in my bag without spending $10,000 plus for a really good lens of this size.

Ottelephoto Lenses


All third-party lens makers make their lenses available with a Nikon mount.

Keep in mind that autofocus will only work if the lens has an internal focus motor.

I have a Minolta Rokkor-x 200mm telephoto lens with fungus


Lens fungus is really common and it's not cost effective to repair. Even if the fungus is removed then the multicoatings are permanently damaged.

The good news is that until the fungus becomes pretty severe the image quality doesn't suffer much as most photos use the lens stopped down to some extent and this means that if the centre of the lens is clear then there's nothing to block the light paths.

Unfortunately it does tend to spread, so keep affected lenses in a separate camera bag to the rest and if you can afford to do so then throw them away and replace your camera bag as it will be loaded with microscopic spores waiting to attack more lenses. Making sure that your camera and lenses are completely dry and free of condensation before storing them until next used will prevent reoccurence.

Vivitar telephoto lense 500mm


Yes and no. If it doesn't come with one, you'll need a T-adapter for Nikon in order to mount the lens (you can get one from Vivitar, as well as from other manufacturers). The lens is not an autofocus lens, so obviously you will have to focus manually. It's also a mirror lens so it has a fixed aperture. It's what Nikon classifies as a non-CPU lens, so you cannot use the D90's exposure meter. You will have to shoot in Manual mode.

Lens


You have a 55mm filter size on your camera, and the accessory lens requires a 62mm camera connection. I think you are looking through a 55mm tunnel into a 62mm lens (over-simplified I know). The black ring is the result, and I don't think you can fix that. Is the telephoto a Panasonic accessory, or a third party item. I think I already know the answer to that. I'd take it back and see what Panasonic recommends - you'd be happier. However, Panasonic has Leica glass (Leitz lenses) so it won't be cheap.
