Summary: Overall this kit is a good value. I have had the camera Olympus Stylus TG 3 for about two months and have just returned from taking the camera and kit on vacation to North Cascades. The lens: gives great clarity, but leaves a dark ring/pin hole effect if not zoomed in 3/4 of the way. I have read online that there is a special setting on the camera to fix this problem, but have not had a chance to look into it yet.
all other prodcuts that came with it are great though.

Summary: Its not what i expected, the zoom magnification is not as much as i desired and i thouht it magnified at every level of zoom but it only magnifies the last 3/4 of the zoom anything less than that you see a big black square around your image. all other prodcuts that came with it are great though.
Summary: For as much as I paid for it, it doesn't do what I thought it would. Although, I think I knew this buying it since I like to research before purchasing certain (technological-type) items. So, this is totally at the fault of the user. Lol. I am sure it would work nicely for "close" distance. Hahaha. I know, oxymoron. But, it doesn't make too much of a difference and it doesn't make the picture any more clear/crisp.
Summary: It helps you zoom in slightly more than what the camera limit is. You must have the camera zoomed in all the way to use this product or you will have a black "O" outline on your pictures. The material is good and does what it says but i think its a little expensive and UNNECESSARY.
Summary: I purchased this before I went on vacation in hopes to improve the zoom on my camera and it just doesn't do the trick. It hardly enhances at all. Not worth the money and not worth even having to carry it around all day in hopes to possibly use it.
Summary: It doesn't make that much of a difference for the investment. I went snorkeling with it and was very limiting. To avoid the pinhole look you need to zoom in significantly, so you are stuck trying to take pictures up close only. The camera has a decent macro feature that let's you take pictures up close and almost the same zoom capacity without this over expensive lens anyways. Plus you'll be able to take wider pictures as well.
