Fantastic bargain

  • Excerpt: Works great with the standard Canon DSLR 18-55mm zoom. Zoom out and you get the classic spherical fisheye effect that costs big $$$ from other sources (note- edge focus is NOT sharp, but majority is acceptable). Zoom in and fill the frame corner to corner with an EXTREME wide angle shot. For less than $50 I'm going to have a lot of fun with this. If you need super high quality photos, though, save your money.
  • Pros: Decent quality, Easy To Use, low price
  • Cons: Not Sharp At Edges

VERY AFFORDABLE & Works Great!

  • Summary: This is a very good lens for practice and for fun. I did not want to spend $600 on a Nikon lens for fish-eye view only, I feel that is a waste since I am not aiming for fish-eye images. I would rather spend the money on a regular focal length Nikon Lens, even if it is over $2,000. Fish-eye is not my thing, but this lens definitely did the trick. I play around with it while my son plays soccer, on buildings, etc. It is a good lend to have in your camera bag, just in case.

Inexpensive and still not worth it

  • Summary: The lens had no noticeable fisheye affect unless literally in your subjects face, which in my work means being lens to dog nose. Even when I tested it on more cooperative subjects - adult humans, inanimate objects - while I did get the described wide angle, still no fisheye distortion that created any interest. I'm a professional photographer and have worked with many adapters, but this one seemed to do nothing but add weight to my camera.

Scratch

  • Summary: I discovered a scratch on the inside of the glass the day I first went to use this. I e-mailed the company without a reply. They absolutely suck. Piece of garbage company. Crap....

Hours of fun for 50 bucks.

  • Summary: I can't go without a fisheye and I cant afford a true fisheye lens, and so this is a perfect solution. I just upgraded my digital SLR camera to the Nikon D7000 and had to get rid of all my old lenses and filters. I decided to go with this fisheye and I am happy I did. I think all photographers should use a fisheye from time to time just for kicks. It is so much fun to toy around with. The quality isn't AMAZING, but for the price it is perfect.

Works, but not more than that.

Jonathan Mark, Amazon

  • Summary: It is a cheap lens adapter, works but with a really low lens quality. The focus is only in the middle. If you want a lens to play, ok, but if you want to use to something serious, just chose a true FULL lens.
