2.2 tele extender lens

Dear Polaroid The other day I ordered and received overnight the Studio Series 58 2.2 extender and wide angle lens. Both appear clear but when I attach the 2.2 extender the image is sort of foggy looking. Since I paid a lot for this item and a bunch to have it overnighted I think it should be fog free. Do you have any suggestions to help? Or can you send me a replacement. As I've said I already spent a bunch on shipping and do not want to spend more. I'm trying to get close in to take pics of newly hatched meadowlarks so speed is important. My address is, Andrew Rentz, 212 Castillian, Hays KS 67601 phone is (785) 639-3543.I've always had great luck with all my other Polaroid products in the past. Anything you all could do would bee greatly appreciated.Sincerely Andrew Rentz.

SOURCE: it appears that a heavy fog warning in in order for my 70-300

If you have fungus in the lens there isn't much you can do. If you have moisture in the lens there is a little trick that I've used that has worked well for me. Extend the zoom all the way out on the lens, then use a hair dryer to blow air into the lens at the base of the extended zoom. Don't blow directly on the lens optics. When you are cleaning your lenses do not blow on them. That is a major contributor to moisture in a lens.

SOURCE: 24mm1:2auto wide angle the lens is coming apart

With all due respect, your lens is not worth repairing unless you are already experienced in making lens repairs, and from your question you clearly aren't. The Vivitar 24mm f2 and the f2.8 versions are not the easiest of lenses to start learning on. The fault is either due to wear (new spares no longer available, used spares in very short supply) or one or more loose/missing internal fasteners (probably the focussing ring limiters), but investigating and accurately fixing the cause is not cost effective.

You can buy a replacement on auction websites for anywhere between £30 and £80, and for about £20 to £60 less if you're prepared to accept the f2.8 version which is one stop slower at maximum aperture. Even at the higher price you'll find that it's cheaper than having your lens professionally fixed (or even for paying for a diagnostic strip-down only to be told it's irreparable). However, you can offset some of the cost by selling your lens in it's current condition and honestly described as being for spares or repair. As it's the faster f2 model it's always in demand and will appeal to those who have the skills to restore it to working condition. Another one to search for (and much easier to find) is the excellent Tamron 24mm f2.5 which typically sells for around £20 to £35, although you may have to spend more to obtain the correct interchangeable Adaptall-2 mount for your camera (but you can get most of that back when you sell the unwanted mount supplied with the lens). As the maximum aperture is f2.5 the lens is only about a half a stop slower than yours.

I hope that my reply has helped, if so please rate my answer.

What adapter do i need to make a vivitar 52MM wide angle lens work with a Nikon D-3000 with a 18-135MM lens?

If you can fit a filter to the front of your lens, you could buy a wide angle adapter like a 0.5, with the screw size that fits your filter screw.
But the wide angle front lenses, were designed for compact camera's and video camera's And although the 18 mm could become like 12 mm, but you will introduce colour fringing, distortion and more , that can't be corrected in normal programs like Lightroom.
I used a wide angle 0,5x (52mm) Hama and a tele 1,5x from cannon, on my video and later on my canon powershot G9, to find I was looking for a DSLR. I never was quiet pleased with the results.

And yes, sometimes you can't go farther back, but then I shoot 2 or 3 pictures.
Now I use a 12 - 24 on my Nikon DSLR. Now I get the pictures I want in a quality that fits.
My 0,5 and 1,5 are somewhere in a box. I payed the same (new) for both as for my Sigma 12-24. With the sigma I do have fun.

Will polaroid 52mm lens filters fit my panasonic fz45 camera

Your FZ45 accepts 52mm filters. You can use any 52mm filters you wish on this lens.

There are two types of polarizing filters: linear and circular. The linear polarizing filters are for film cameras and *some* digital cameras. Circular polarizing filters are needed by many digital cameras because the linear polarizing filter types interfere with the autofocus programs. If you shoot in manual focus modes only, it won't matter which you buy. If you do use autofocus, you ought to try the linear before buying - otherwise, purchase the circular polarizer.

I hope this helps! If it did, please rate my reply "4 thumbs up". Thanks!

What do you do when lens does not come out all the way?

Lens turns when it comes out. Recharge your lithium ion battery fully first. Turn on the camera. Then zoom to see if the lens moves freely. Fully extended only when it is not in tele mode but in wide angle mode. You need service if the lens does not move out, and camera does not power on.

I want to get a manual also I want to purchase a wide angle lens for the c-7070 olympus camera

Manual can be downloaded free from here ....

A typical wide / tel lens kit listed on eBay. Note that either / both lenses require you to screw an adaptor tube around the existing lens, so that the lens extender mechanism can continue to function properly. (This kit includes it - some do not).

Hope this helps
