You can take some pretty cool shots but they all look soft.

My opinion is for you to buy one more expensive because it will be woth it, because i wasted my money and theres nothing for me to do about it.

This was the first fisheye lens I have bought, the main factor to buy this lens was its price. I wanted to try my hands on fisheye as I had never tried it before and what better place to start with very little investment. I used it with my D40 and found the results very satisfactory.

*This is a specialized lens. The macro lens is used for taking close up pictures of small objects (insects, pennies, etc), and the fisheye lens is used to take pictures whose results appear as a fisheye, eg real estate pictures, nature photography, sports, etc, etc. This lens does both, which is a good thing.

The lenses capabilities have been listed by other reviewers. I think that, for the price, it takes pretty decent pictures. I only have one problem though; when taking the 'fisheye' pictures, (the round pictures that resemble the eye of a fish) sometimes, there is a streak of light, barely noticeable, that penetrates the portion between the normal camera lens (18-55) and the macro-fisheye lens. I have tightened the lens to try and eliminate this, but a keen observer may point this out! As for the issue with the flash (pictures come out badly when flash is used, and you should not use the flash while using this lens), I saw that, even with minimal light, the D60 was able to use its internal flash to light up the picture!

For those complaining, please note that a Nikon fisheye lens costs $699, and a Nikon macro lens is [..]. To take pictures using the original Nikon macro or fisheye lenses, similar to those this particular Opteka lens takes, you would need to purchase the two lenses separately at more than [..]! (or even more)

Unless you earn your living in specialized photography, or are a perfectionist to the T, then this lens is good for beginners, amateurs and semi-professionals, and about [..]cheaper!

Please look at the pictures posted above submitted by reviewers, and their website recommendations to be able to see exactly what type of pictures are produced by this lens, if you are not exactly sure. Here is my link I found [..]

Although this isn't the greatest fisheye lens on the market for $30 you shouldn't expect it to be. I personally own a Nikon D60 and the fisheye fit perfectly on both of my lenses. I don't know what the other reviewers were having problems with because mine works and fits great.

It does squeak when you screw it on the lens which is really annoying but, i can't expect much for what i paid.

I am using this lens with a Canon Rebel XS. I screwed it onto the end of the 18-55mm kit lens.

Pros
-fits well
-looks cool
-gives expanded angle of view (not truely 180 deg though)
-center area is in focus (AF seems to work)

Cons
-unacceptable blur around edges, even while zoomed in enough to crop the vignetting
-front filter attachment rattles around and is not secure

It is a fish eye, but it is super blurry. I wanted to experiment with a fish eye lens but now wish I had saved up for a dedicated lens rather than an attachment.

I bought this lens along with the Opteka 52mm 10x HD² Professional Macro Lens Opteka 52mm 10x HD² Professional Macro Lens for Nikon D60, D40, D40X, & D50 Digital SLR Cameras. In side by side comparisons of the pictures from the macro lenses, this one appears to be equal to the task, plus you get the fisheye all for the same price. Though the description of the fisheye notes a 180-degree view, it appears to be SLIGHTLY less than that when using my 18mm setting on my Nikon lens (not complaining, just noting).
Overall, I strongly recommend this product if you're a amateur, even a serious one, looking to get a cheap but sturdy and high quality macro/fisheye.

I bought this for my wife's D60. It fits just fine on the end of the lens the camera came with. I don't know what the other yahoo's problem with it is, but it works great. Just screw it on to the end of your lense. You may need an adapter, but mine didn't.
You'll have to turn off your flash if you're using the stock one since the light will hit the fisheye lense since it's so long.

Screwing this lens on a 50mm lens gives you about a 28 mm (as far as I can estimate). On a 28mm you start to see a little fisheye effect, but nothing like in the examples. I have ordered the proper adapter ring to try it with my 17mm lens, will check back with the results. But you can not just screw this on a 50mm and get fisheye effects. It's a wide angle lens, but it's not that wide.

Update: I put this lens on an 18-55 DX lens on my daughter's Nikon D50, and it gives a really nice fisheye effect at 18mm; a circular image with just a little of the top and bottom cropped. This is what my daughter was looking for, so I gave her the lens. She has taken some fun photos with it.

The lens gives you a .35 conversion, which attached to an 18mm gives you an effective 6.3mm, which is more in line with what the example photos are showing.

If you want a fun fisheye effect and don't have thousands of dollars for a 6mm primary, this lens is for you.
