Good for the price and for what it is
on November 12, 2013
I got this because I want a true fisheye lens but wasn't sure I was ready to commit to the price of it. This is inexpensive and fun to use, although not the same as buying a fisheye lens (which would also cost about 10x more).
The best photos i have taken with it are essentially macro, and I have played with the distortion and lens flare for effect (take the negative aspect and have fun with it rather than expect the lens adapter to do something it just can't do).
Does it really replace buying a fisheye lens? Not really. Does it work for dabbling in fisheye photography? Absolutely.
One big gripe i have is that the silly lens cap is worthless and it simply falls off it, so i walk around using it with no lens cap. At least it is inexpensive so if it gets damaged, no big loss!
