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.

I have also been able to use this lens without vignetting at much lower focal lengths than stated in Nikon's conservative specs. I get approximately 125-240mm (35mm equiv.) which works perfectly for me as the p5100 built in lens end at 123mm. For those who may not know - you need to purchase the corresponding adapter to use this lens with your camera; for the p5100 I bought the UR-e20.

God bless and happy shooting!

...this is an incredibly sharp lens.
If you own one of the popular Coolpix cameras and want to increase your zoom potential, this should be yoru first choice. Not only are the optics first rate, but the lens is not overly heavy. This enables you to screw it on and walk aroudn with it. Photos produced with this lens are stunning and very crisp. The only drawback I'd say this has is the limit of only 2x telephoto/teleconverter aspect, but that is what keeps it relatively light! Amazon also sells a 3x version, but it is significantly heavier and it will end up in the closet instead of on your Coolpix.
Get this lens - you will be *thrilled* you did.

As you would expect from a Nikon lens it's wonderful.
What keeps it from getting 5 stars from me is that when using it with a P5100 camera the internal zoom is almost useless because if you put your camera on no zoom at all you see a circle in the middle of the screen.
You need to put it from 60-90% zoom on your camera in order to have the image fill the screen. Also the camera will not focus if you try and use the digital over zoom.
With these limitations in mind it takes wonderful clear images.

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.
Comunque sono pienamente soddisfatto
