decent pictures for the price. lens feels a little heavy for the kit 18-55mm lens, but it auto focuses fine.
my better captures were at focal lengths between 28mm and 23mm. anything lower causes good fisheye/dostorted effects, but with that black barrel showing more as you zoom out. also blurs more around the edges at lower focal lengths.
good macro lens. can't really use with your pop up flash because the lens sticks out too far and causes shadows in low lit areas.
lens caps are cheap and don't stay on too well outside of it's rough carrying case.
shipped pretty fast and cost me less than $40 after everything.
oh and it also came with a lens cleaning kit..

I am not a professional photographer. I am not a crazy camera person. I just wanted a fisheye lens for my camera. That was the main goal. I wanted a cheap, easy to use, something that worked and I wanted it to produce cool images. That's all. I googled and googled, and read review after review. I discovered people are way into this and there was just too much technical info and all I wanted to know was 1. does it fit on camera? 2. was it as easy as point n shoot? WELL. This one was. I screwed it on my lens. Not bothering to read the NOT so hand user info that came along with it, and it was SO DAMN SIMPLE. Screw the attachment to the first lens, then screw the fisheye to that part. 1, 2 and you're done. Look through the camera and take a photo. How easy is that? It produced some very cool images, *you can see mine very unprofessional pictures on the reviews. All just point and shoot. I totally love this "toy" and I'm glad I bought it. It also came with a cool lens cleaner. I'm a fisheye shooter for life.

I own a Nikon D40 camera. This lens came in a little box in a leather-like pouch. I was very excited to open it. All you have to do is screw on the little ring they provided and then screw on the lens, which is titanium. It's a little on the heavy side. The photographs are really great. I am a "beginner" and I couldn't have asked for anything better. It's cheap, easy to use, and functions well as a fish eye lens. I have pictures if you want to see how they turn out, just contact me by providing an email :))

This is a nice little fisheye lens just to play around with, but the glass quality is not very good. I would not recommend this for anything other than just starting out.

I had to get a screw adapter to fit it onto my lens, but it does what it's supposed to. it's a fisheye adapter to give you macro when you don't have a macro lens, or when you want more range than what your current macro has. Plus, it's $20. If this lens had been in the hundreds, it would have gotten one star, but considering the price, I'm very satisfied. It gives some minor fisheye distortion, and it definitely offers a wide angle view. The thing that makes it a $20 lens adapter is the fact that it adds some fog to the image... almost like a natural gaussian blur. It's very light, but it's there, as there is no way to perfectly focus with this adapter on.

Fits perfectly.
Gives great fish-eye effect.
Macro shots look amazing.
Not too heavy on the camera.
Definitely recommend this to beginner photographers.

It is a cheap lens. Fun to play with, but poor resolution with my Nikon D40.

The fisheye lens is a wonderful addition for my D40. I used a fisheye lens every chance I got when station in Japan and Okinawa. My kids enjoyed taking pictures of their pets and friends. Of course we only had film cameras at the time. If you want to take some memorable photos, try the lens every occasion you get. I use fisheye and star glare almost every time I take pictures.

An update to a review. This arrived several days past the expected delivery time, but product works well. It is not an expensive stand alone lens, but a adapter that screws on to another lens. That's what I expected and for what it is, it works very well. Good way to experiment with fisheye perspective.

this is just a generic fisheye lens with an adaptor to fit it to the 52 mm Nikon lens.
It is 46 mm and includes a 46 to 52 adaptor.
this is not a quality lens, but adequate for someone to play around with.
good for fun experiments and taking casual photos
well worth the price though
