Conversion Lens: What Is It?


What is a conversion lens? Is it to add on to a telephoto lens? This might sound like a stupid question but I'm a newbie so please forgive me. :)

  It changes the focal length of your lens when you attach it. Tele-converter and tele-extender are other names for them. They are denoted by how much they change the focal length. Or you could say how strong they are if it's a tele-converter. 2X doubles the focal length, 1.5 makes it increase by 50 percent.
