I bought this adapter primarily for use as a wide-angle lens once attached to my stock EOS 18-55mm lens that came with my Canon EOS Rebel XSi. On receiving it I found it doubles as a macro adapter (you just need to unscrew the wide-angle adapter). For the price it is a good deal, it costs below $30 and any decent fish-eye or wide-angle lens system will cost a good deal above $100. However there are performance issues which I will highlight here. Though I must mention, I found nothing amiss with the macro adapter - it had a crisp but narrow depth of focus, which I think is desirable in macro photography in which you require only your subject to be clearly focused. However the wide-angle adapter was a different story. I usually get crisp images with the stock EOS 18-55mm lens that came with my camera, the borders of distant objects are sharp and clear. However after attaching the wide-angle adapter the borders of distant objects tended to be hazy (thicker borders that looked like a smear of unnaturally bright colors [where I expected to see crisp dark outlines], this maybe a kind of chromatic aberration). Furthermore in the full zoomed out 0.42x view the picture's corners are clipped off and you get a final picture with a roundish view area [the corners are black: imagine a rectangle, now draw an ellipse within it - such that it touches all the sides, next constrain your picture within the ellipse and blacken all the parts of the rectangle that lie outside the ellipse]. So my final word on this adapter is buy it if you are going to use it for an occasional trip to some national park and are not much concerned about capturing the finer details of distant structures.Read more ›

Two tricks make this adapter really useful and versatile: a step-down converter ring, and one simple Photoshop adjustment.

It converts my 28mm equivalent lens to what I roughly estimate is a 21mm lens--a big increase in angle of view.

I got one of these adapters for my Olympus micro 4/3 camera, to try out as an alternative to a $600 true wideangle.

The big problem is substantial barrel distortion. Also, there is chromatic aberration in the corners and some vignetting (darkening in those corners). Now, here's the trick: Photoshop Elements (and, no doubt, other photo management programs) can eliminate the barrel distortion in: Filter/Correct Camera Distortion/Remove Distortion (try +20 to +30%). This has the huge additional benefit of pulling the corners out of the picture without reducing the wide angle of view--the very corners where both the chromatic aberration and vignetting occur! Crop to make the picture rectangular, and you have reduced all 3 problems significantly with this one adjustment.

Now, you still are not getting top quality. But for the ridiculously low price of this lens you are getting 50% or more of the quality at a twentieth of the price of a "real" ultrawide.

FItting the adapter to your lens: I use a Digital Concepts adapter on my micro 4/3 14-42mm lens (28 mm equivalent at wide angle). I have to say that the lens' focus mechanism struggled to work--the motors on this tiny lens must be too weak to move the added weight of this adapter--and I therefore found it best to use manual focus. Other cameras may not have this issue. I actually used Digital Concepts' "0.45X Professional 43mm Wide Angle HD Lens with Macro" which has a 43mm screwthread, closer to my specific need, and I had to also buy a 43 to 40.5mm stepdown ring.

I bought this item based on the reviews...and because the wide lens that I wanted was not available. It's a nice cheap sub but you can't use the auto focus on your lens and if you have to focus quickly it's not a good sub.

So. It you are going to take the time to focus on every shoot then it's a good sub...but if you are changing positions and going from shot to shot then best to go with an original lens.

It's not the widest, but it works.

Mine came with everything it needed to attach to my camera, so I was satisfied with that.

Cons: The vignette gets annoying, really loud squeaking when I attach/unattached it (really annoying and embarrassing), like I said, not the widest

Pros: It is a dramatic difference in terms of how wide. I always, and I mean ALWAYS, have this lens with me wherever I go. It's just not the same without it now.

Although it isn't as great as a real actual lens, and this is an attachment, it's worth it's price. Don't expect top notch! But it does it's job.

I always wondered if I would like a wide angle lens so I took a chance on this. Several reviews mentioned vignetting with this and on the T3 with the 18-55mm lens you will get that at the wider settings. The quality of the picture is good, and after using this a few times I well be looking for fish eye lens in the future. In the mean time I can use this with no regrets.

I purchased this in hopes to get more use out of my 18-55mm lens and I definitely will. Not only can I get even closer and it is able to zoom nicely with macros but the quality of the picture is beautiful. I have to say those nay sayers just seem to expect platinum quality at the price of silver. It does better than I expected especially at the price. I will be posting pictures soon!
