Warning!- adapters S7000

Hi there, recently purchased the TL XF9 - conclusion - absolute tat!
The extention tube and lens is produced in different surface finish
making it look like a botched attachment to the camera. The extension
tube is polished, the lens is a matt grey/black.

Not only that but the difference of x1.5 is questionable, and because of depth of field

there is not that nice flat perspective/ out of focus you get with a normal 300mm lens
on a film camera.

Instead you get a fraction closer version of the extended 210mm that comes with the camera. The same telephoto effect can be done by cropping the 210mm image. So do not waste your money, if you were to purchase both adapters at 99.99 each (Tottenham court road)
though you can get for 89.99 if you ask, another £50 could by a new
s5500 which has a lens of 37mm - 370mmm and you have a back up camera.

best wishes, Carl.
