MD) CL) TC-E2 2X TELE F/COOLPIX 430
A well made lens that balances well with my Nikon p5100; the TC-E2 is much lighter than the TC-E3ED lens. I purchased a cheaper 2X lens that was blurry in the corners and gave 1.26X rather than the listed 2X magnification. This lens gives me the 2X magnification (well just shy of absolute 2X - designed for 1/1.8 type sensor while the p5100 has a 1/1.72 type sensor) while still allowing me to use my optical viewfinder (1/3 of the viewfinder blocked at full zoom, less blockage otherwise). Here you would be out of luck and $200 extra with the TC-E3ED.
...this is an incredibly sharp lens.
As you would expect from a Nikon lens it's wonderful.
Beautiful pictures with this on my Lumix. You will have to use a wider aperture, if you don't want to use a tripod. You will be rewarded with crisp pictures though. Is it DSLR quality- No, but then you should not expect it to be. It is a excellent lens for what it is worth.
Great item, one thing to note is you cannot take a picture with the flash, because the lens blocks the flash and casts a shadow on the image. But man is it fun on a tripod or out side.
I bought this lens for my Coolpix 4300 along with the Wide angle (26mm) converter and am very pleased with the results. All the comments from my review of the WA converter apply to this one too. Great product! You can't go wrong.
CoolPix 5000 in it's day was a more robust digital camera with few bells and wistles this lens helps a bit giving a small boost to its functionality.
Solid piece of equipment and it works well.
E' arrivato nei tempi. Qualche pecca nel confezionamento che poteva provocare seri danni al contenuto interno.
