Be warned. Does not fit Makayama Movie Mount for iPad

Summary: I purchased the Makayama Movie Mount for iPad and this lens was recommended. The base of the lens is too wide to fit on the Makayama Movie Mount. I'm now in search for an adapter or other to render the lenses useful.
Summary: I ordered this lens primarily for wide angle photography. However, it's better for the macro portion. PROS: I'm able to use my 18-55mm lens, attach the macro lens to it and photograph the detailed words on a penny or a dime with no problem whatsoever.
Summary: I've had this lens add-on for about 3 years now. I use it on and off, depending upon the mood and circumstances, like nearly everything else in my kit bag. This lens is a 2 part add-on. the wider, front element is the wide-angle lens and the rear element is the macro lens.
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.
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.
Summary: Don't buy this lens. Now with that out of the way, buy this lens IF you know it's not a great wide angle lens, it's not a great macro lens, there's a ton of vignetting, even fully wide mine has vignetting all around. I have it on my Nikkor 18-200, zoomed in is almost useless. NOW.
Summary: This is a video I shot in my friend's pool using my Canon VIXIA HF200 with WP-V1 underwater housing. The camera is set to 'Underwater' mode hence the red tint that is noticeable out of the water.
Summary: I use this sparingly with my Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ 35. Frankly, it does not do much. The most notable difference you will see in your pictures is the way it akwardly shows the inner parts of the lens on the picture. You will not get the same result you see when you google "fisheye lens pictures".
Summary: Wonderful value but when fully zoomed out for wide angle (which is what it was needed for) the black circle of the lens rim shows up. You have to zoom back in a bit to rid this, which brings me back to close to what my camera (Canon Vixia HF M31) can do naturally.
