  • Summary: This is just an ok lens. Edges will appear on the shot, and the distortion at the outer areas are evident. Can't complain for the price though.

Meh

  • Summary: Not too impressed with this lens but again your only paying $12 at its current price I also get vignetting witch causes me to zoom in meaning you loose a lot of the "wide angle" from this lens.

Sometimes what you get is better than what you expected!

  • Summary: I ordered this Zeikos ZE-WA37S 37mm .45 Wide Angle Lens without much expectations, I mean it was dirt cheap, you know you get what you pay for and all... In any case. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this little cheap ass lens! After I received the lens (Came black by the way) I quickly put it on my Camcorder and went outside to shoot some video. Shot some video with it on and some without it.

Absolutely solid.

  • Summary: I recieved this lens a week ago, and shooting with it has been one fantastic week. I use a Canon Rebel T3i and this lens is the perfect addition to the stock 18-55 kit lens. it looks great, and takes even greater shots. on top of that, it makes shooting video in a crowd magnitudes easier and more stable. I couldn't recommend this lens more.

Does the job well for the price, but a caveat..

John C, Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered this as a basic test to expand the wide end of my Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS lens for video mode on a hybrid DSLR. This adapter is made up of two pieces: a wide-angle portion, and a macro portion. With the macro adapter screwed onto the back of the wide-angle adapter, it fits a 58mm lens, but the threading between the macro section and the wide section has much smaller threading.

Great value, but know its quirks.

Michael B., Amazon

  • Summary: Okay, for only 11 bucks (plus shipping), what an incredible deal. Even the Amazon.com price is phenomenal. BUT, you need to know the pros/cons of this product. 1.)The build quality is great. Looks 15x more expensive than it is. Integrates well with camera. 2.)It's actually a set. This isn't at all clear from the description. You get a macro lens, and a wide angle converter. The two screw together to create a macro/wide angle converter combo. I'll discuss each one, below.

Amazing for the Price

  • Summary: Length:: 0:30 Mins I agree with A. Abram's review. The wide angle lens has a very good build quality and blends well with my Canon Vixia HF200. Pretty much everything in his review is spot on. However, there are a couple things that are somewhat disappointing. The vignetting in close range means this lens really can't be used for semi-pro work.

Quality Wide Angle adapter at a great price

A. Abrams "Vermonter", Amazon
2 March 2011
  • Summary: I purchased thus for my new Canon HG21 also purchased at Amazon. Build quality of glass and housing is excellent and the optics clearly have an anti-reflective coating on them. Image quality is fine in several minutes of test video I shot and appears to be completely undistorted. Do note that some camcorders (like my HG21 had) may have slight corner cutoff/vignetting at the full wide-angle zoom setting.

Works awesome on the Canon 28mm f/1.8 prime lens

Just My $.02, Amazon
2 March 2011
  • Summary: I was looking for an ultra wide angle lens for landscape photography on my Canon 7D. Luckily, I happened across this little gem on Amazon. It's cheaper, lighter and more compact than a dedicated lens, but is it worth buying? Below is a list of PROS, CONS and TIPS about this lens adapter. Hopefully this review helps you decide. PROS: * No Vignetting - On my Canon EF 28mm F/1.8 USM prime lens, I have zero vignetting.

Gotta take the good with the bad with this one...

Christopher Vincelette, Amazon

  • Summary: I have owned this for a few weeks now. I've used it a few times with my Canon HF S10. Just recently I used it for a 2 hour tour de force real estate shoot. I filmed indoors and outdoors, low light and bright light, fixed on a tripod and hands free with panning. The final cut (10 minutes) can be viewed on youtube if you search for "Colonial Square Model Twin Home Complete!
