    Vivitar HD3-43 reviews

    HD3-43 0.43x Wide Angle Conversion Lens for 62mm Filter Thread is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Vivitar conversion lens in use This product was selected partly because of previous good experiences with Vivitar 35mm w/a lenses and the apparent build-quality of this lens (steel rather than plastic lens barrel construction). The conversion lens is certainly well-made, multi-coated w/a that has some barrel distortion but at least it fully covers into the corners of the frame of my 4k UHD Sony FDR-AX100E camcorder. The Vivitar fits on the filter thread of the camcorder's excellent f/2.8 Zeiss vario-sonnar. However, although attached close to the front element of the prime lens, the Vivitar has poor edge definition and it is necessary to stop down to f/8 for acceptable edge detail. This aperture has the effect of diminishing overall Zeiss lens performance since the vario-sonnar is optimized for use in the range f/2.8 - f/5.6 before defraction softens the image overall. The Vivitar is a pretty lens that should perform better. Would recommend it for still camera use where image correcting software can correct barrel distortion and reduce edge chromatic aberration. On my 4k camcorder I obtained a sharper image overall using a single element Sunagor x0.6 w/a accessory lens purchased several decades ago. The Vivitar, however has the advantage of providing an image right to the corners of the Sony sensor (whereas the Sunagor does not). The Vivitar is best used with the Zeiss zoom set to full w/a (equiv 29mm on a 35mm camera) and stopped down to f/6.7 - f/8. In my opinion the field of view on my camcorder is equivalent to x0.65 or even x0.70 rather than the x4.3 quoted. However when fitted to standard focal length lense the Vivitar may provide better edge definition and a true x0.43 field of view.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Further tests by High Contrast This afocal lens has since been tested on two Canon DSLR standard focal length lenses. In each case there was neither barrel distortion nor chromatic aberrations near the edge of the frame. This lens seems to suit some prime lenses especially where the front element of the prime is significantly smaller than the rear element of the Vivitar wide angle attachment.
