Beautiful piece of glass with bad lens cap

Summary: Beautiful razor sharp piece of glass w/circular image. Use w/58mm single adapter tube on a P7000. Lens cap needed to be modified though. Really dangerous cap. Lens would fall out of your hand when grabbed by the cap.
Summary: Due to its superior quality, this lens also performs admirably as a super wide angle lens when used with a tighter zoom angle. Zoomed all the way out, it becomes a traditional fisheye lens, and despite not being listed as so, is an essential accessory for the P5100.
Summary: A truly fun piece of glass and I use it as both a toy and a tool. I love to shoot people and objects with it and see what the distortion does to the image, but it's also incredibly useful when you have no room to work or back up.

Summary: Slipped right on the CoolPix 995. Almost slipped onto the floor as well - the lens cover is nice, but held on by friction between a felt strip inside the cover and the side of the lens. It's second nature to pick it up by the lens cover. And the lens falls right out. Be warned!
Summary: This summer while taking wide angle photos with this converter, I set my camera with fish-eye and small tripod on an unstable rock. As I set the timer, I watched in horror as my camera and converter fell off the rock and another 50 feet down a rocky slope.
Summary: You'll love this thing. Nikon quality is amazing. This lens gives a great effect to your pics. If you photograph inside rooms, you can get the whole room in the picture, a full 180 degrees. Takse the two 180 's and combine them in your computer to 1 sphere and you have a full 360 degree room view.
You get what you paid for: more money equals better lens.

Summary: The most important thing you need to keep in mind is that because the Coolpix has a built in lens (unlike SLR), any modification (tele/wide add on) will invariably degrade the quality of the picture in both sharpness and exposure.
