    2.2x 55mm High Definition II Telephoto Lens for Digital Cameras (Silver) is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy. I have a 100mm f/2.8 and have been using this to photograph Jazz musicians in a dimly lit club. Other than the price (which I should have known was too good to be true) what attracted me to this item is the fact that it would allow me to shoot at my widest aperture. When I received this item everything was in order. I don't mind the look of it, I think it's rather stylish. However, it absolutely destroys the optical quality of any lens you attach it to. I have made custom lenses out of plastic that had less chromatic abberation than this. It uses fancy terms like high definition and 2nd generation optical coating which I more or less knew going into this meant nothing. There is such a reduction in sharpness that I thought the autofocus system was being tripped up. I switched over to live view and manual focus but sure enough, the focus was fine, the lens makes everything hazy and you lose all edge sharpness at every aperture. I suppose this lens has a few very small niche uses (like purpously giving your image a lomo feel) but my advice is to simply not bother with this.
