The lens is cheap, and I know enough about optics and cameras to be forewarned that I may have just thrown away $17.00. The lens arrived in a plastic bubble envelope (Sigh). I was prepared for the worst. The manufacturers box was crushed badly (second Sigh). Then I find that this is made by Vivitar, a fact not mentioned in the product description (well maybe this isn't so bad). Then I noticed that the magnification factor is 0.43 and not 0.45x as shown in the product photo (Not a real big deal, but kinda makes one wonder how careful these folks are). I tried it out on my Canon T2i 18-55 lens. There is vignetting at 18mm zoom, although the manufacturers suggestion is to use the maximum wide angle setting. However at this setting it is the equivalent of a 12mm lens (35mm film photography-I just can't get used to the small sensor focal length factors). Vignetting disappears at about 24mm zoom (16mm in 35mm equivalent). At 35 mm zoom the lens gives me a 24mm focal length equivalent. So for $17.00 I get to extend my wide angle capabilities below the 28mm equivalent on the standard Canon lens to as low as maybe 15-18mm in 35 mm equivalents with the supplementary lens. Hey not bad for a cheap lens. I'll probably only use it for those special times I need an extreme (for me) wide angle. When I did 35mm film photography I had a 21mm, 24mm, and a 28mm wide angle. Mostly I used the 28mm, sometimes the 24mm and rarely the 21mm. So right now with only a bit of testing, this looks like I didn't waste $17.00 after all.

UPDATE: I did more testing and the most significant result is that the there is significant chromatic aberration outside the central 50 percent of the photo. The aberration is most noticeable at higher magnifications. It seems that if you do some judicious cropping and don't make big enlargements is won't be so noticeable--particularly at 8 x 10 or maybe 11 x 14.

This lens is fantantic for the money. I take a lot of macro shots and didn't want to invest in a big clunky separate lens. This does the trick perfectly.

I just upgraded to a digital SLR and didn't want to buy a separate lens. This screws onto the existing lens and not only does the macro but the wide angle too. I can leave it on my regular 28-55mm lens all the time.

You do get a "tunnel" effect at the corners at the widest angle but if you zoom in just a bit , it disappears. I kinda like the effect with the tunnel on some photos.

It is what it is for the money- a great value.

I like the macro portion but the wide angle seems to leave a shadow at the wide parts from the lens. Other then that it's affordable.

Vignetting around the edges, but it's a cheap lense. I'd be pissed if I dropped hundreds on it, but I get a wide angle for cheap, I'll put up with a little distortion.

I purchase this to have on hand since i am starting out with macro...i wasn't sure if I would like macro and decided instead of spending hundreds on a lens i may not use, i decided to use this quick fix version. The macro works great and i am going to buy a professional lens. Now the wide angle lens thats a different story. It works great to get the wide angle shot, but i wasn't impress with it. The major draw back to this lens is that, unlike the macro, the wide lens affects the color of the photo. You will not notice it initially after the picture is taken but when you reveiw it on your computer, you will notice slight rainbow colors merged with certain objects, you will see slight color distortions. If you are going to take black and white photos with the wide angle, than i would say it worth it, but don't expect great results with the color aspect of the wide lens.

Keep in mind, I am not a professional and that for $12 you are not going to get perfection.
With that in mind, the lens that came was by a company called "Digital Visions", was packaged well, and came with a nice leather pouch.
I have a Canon EOS Rebel T31 and was able to screw the lens right on to the stock lens that came with the camera with no issues.
Quality wise, it blurs the background and causes a little bit of distortion towards the edges, which is what I wanted.
I take photos of dolls/jewelry and I can get extremely close up with this lens that captures tiny detail while blurring out the surrounding areas that, in my world, aren't needed.
Overall, I am happy with my purchase.

I would not recommend this product. I cannot tell much difference at all using this and not using it. Also it says I could use the macro alone, but I cannot because it is too blurry. But I guess for the money you get what you pay for.
