I have one for my P&S to convert an equivelent 38-380mm lens to 17-170mm.

It works OK on the P&S but causes vignetting on my 28-105mm

It may work, but may not

You have to remember that these conversion lenses are designedwith a much smaller image circle, of a P&S of anout 1.5cm, where the ASP-C sensor is an image circle much closer to 3cm
