Has anyone used a Teleconverter with SX50?
Any experience or expectation with the IQ of the pics?

I am talking about the teleconverters that screw on to the front of the lens, like a filter.

SX50 has doesn't have threads on lens for filters, etc.
None of the SXxx series has threads.
They look like threads but they are concentric circles
or ridges just to allow the lens cap to grip.

www.lensmate.com (external link) makes an adapter to allow
attachment of filters.

It uses the lugs for the lens hood
on the outside of the lens.

1200mm optical (4800mm with digital zoom) FF equivalent isn't enough? I haven't tried it, but it's hard enough to hold it steady at its own full zoom.

Thanks for that info. I didn't know that.

Might be fun to play with; just make sure you have really good light...

What are these advertised for the SX50?? Is it false advertising?

"Works with any lens with a 58mm filter thread; manual or autofocus, digital or film." You just need to have the lugs-to-58mm adapter from another source.

Looks like it comes with an adapter similar to Lensmate.


SX40, SX50.
