Camera compatibility check.

The 1.6x Expander is compatible with lenses featuring a mount flange tab to cone tip dimension of 20mm or less. The depth of the mount beyond the flange is considered the part that goes into the camera body normally. We include a clearance checker tool with each expander to allow you to see if your lens fits the expander. Lenses with flange dimensions over 20mm in height are not compatible. Generally most zooms will have a small flange protrusion be compatible while most prime lenses below 50mm are not compatible.
