Exceeds expectations for Lumix LX7

Rob, Amazon
2 August 2013
  • Summary: Using this with a Lumix LX7. When I first put this lens on, I thought my prime lens was rubbing against the metal of the fisheye lens. I carefully disassembled the lens and discovered that it does not touch, and only the adapter lacks sufficient depth for both to fully thread.

Vivitar fisheye lens

R. L. Roeck "rlroeck", Amazon

  • Summary: This lens would have worked great if it fit my grandson's Vivitar camcorder, but the camcorder has a little built-in light on the original lens. Therefore we cannot screw on this fish-eye lens. He was very disappointed. There should be a warning about this.

Horrible Until You Mod It

J. Major, Amazon
17 June 2011
  • Summary: The first time I put this on my camera, I was literally disgusted. It was a huge waste. However, after letting it sit around for a few months I was playing around with it and figured out that if you unscrew the top and remove every lens except for the top one, it goes from being a horrible fisheye...

Pretty good fisheye

Daniel, Amazon
27 February 2011
  • Summary: I thought this was a pretty good fisheye adapter lens. I used it with my Canon S90 and my friends love the shots. Check out the pics I uploaded on this page. Don't expect to the edges of the fisheye to be very sharp since this is a $30 odd fisheye add-on lens- you need to pay $600 odd to see sharp...

  • Summary: i really dislike this fish-eye. barely has the fish-eye effect...when you zoom in half way the edge blurriness goes out of control. found this vid on youtube about this lens [...] so go and check it out. The 2 stars because I was able to return it back :D

Absolutely Mediocre.

Kendal A. Osborne "Dr. Kenneth", Amazon
26 July 2010
  • Summary: This is not a fisheye, really. I mean, it's a very wide angle, but it's not that spherical. Plus, the edges are pretty fuzzy. I really doubt that it's 0.21x! I have a 0.45x that is almost as wide! Now don't get me wrong..

Pretty good.

Luz Celeste Haro "Javier Gonzalez", Amazon

  • Summary: This fisheye is horrid. Too much vid on every cam i put it on. not 180 degree angle. But i modded it. i took off the lenses then unscrewed the macro. removed the macro and then put the lenses back and the fisheye acts now like if it were a opteka baby death. I got so relieved i bought this fisheye.
