The Xpander Lens Vs. The Range Extender
Even though the lens Xpander functions similar to the lens range extender attachment, in terms of focal length and light loss factors, but there is one fundamental difference to appreciate. The lens Xpander gives a larger image dimension by expanding the original image to cover a larger sensor area. This accessory is designed to maintain the optical performance over the larger image area. On the other hand, the range extender is also magnifying the image (focal length gets longer) but this attachment only needs to maintain the optical performance over the original image area. Thus, the Xpander lens is a more demanding and critical optical attachment.
