A 2.2x telephoto converter virtually DOUBLES your camera's maximum focal length, bringing things twice as close. Ideal for all types of photographic situations. A conversion lens can actually improve the image that your digital camera receives. By eliminating flare and ghosting, the ugly cousins of reflection and refraction, before they get to your camera's original lens system, your camera gets a much cleaner image to digitize. Plus, a converter allows you to use a more optimal part of your original lens system, resulting in crisper imagery.
