Excerpt: Quality materials and machining. This fits well and allows me more options. Imagine shooting more intimate wildflower portraits with your 24-70mm lens. A great compliment to a true macro (1: 1) lens too. It's pricey, but its a thick, heavy, and quality piece of glass.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good fit, Reliable, Sharp, Versitile
Excerpt: I recently purchased the 500D lens for my Canon S5IS Powershot camera. My first opportunity to use it was for a close up picture of a wild bird (Cedar Waxwing) that had flown into a house window, was found alive (but stunned) and was placed on a backyard bird feeder.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Summary: good help for closeup pics w/o need to carry heavier macro lens. Much easier to carry step-up rings with close up lens than all the bulkier gear. Can take good closeup with several carry around lenses
Excerpt: I was so happy to try this.Very professional when it works with what you use as a tool.Yes it is sharp all over and aligns perfectly with my 77 mm threads.Have been enjoying the excellent working distance and clarity .With this on my telephoto, a lot of close up benefits are with camera support,...
Excerpt: This brilliant close-up lens is perfectly designed to be an accessory to Canon's 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II lens. I have the occasional desire to shoot macro, but could not justify the cost of a dedicated quality macro lens.
Pros: Easy to Carry, Easy To Use, High-quality, Performs Brilliantly
Cons: Can't Use The Lens Focus, Focus By Moving Camera, Needs The Right Zoom Lens
