I have a Nikon D3100, it does work on this camera. Just twist on the ring to your kit lens, then the macro fisheye lens on top of that and your set.

At first I was a little confused as to how this lens attached to my camera. I took off my kit lens a AF-S NIKKOR 18-55mm lens and realized this macro fisheye lens was a screw on and not a pop on. I was really frazzeled and about to ship this sucker back. But after some thought I realized that maybe it was suppose to be screwed on top of my kit lens. So I screwed on the ring it came with and then screwed on the macro fisheye on to that and voilà! Now this could have been avoided if this lens came with some directions because in other reviews of this lens I've seen customers state that it's not compatible with the Nikon D3100 but in fact it is. The downside is that you cannot zoom, because then you loose the circling effect and distortion. Also, do not use the flash because you'll get a funky reflection in the outer circle. So if you want to get close just step closer to your subject without twisting your wrist. With that said I give this product a 4 out of 5 stars since you just can't beat the price.

Bought this product recently and received before the given time. Started taking the pictures with my Nikon D5100 and the pictures came well and were amazing.

Wow. That's a mouthful. This is my first experience with this type of lens. I haven't had a lot of opportunity to use it, but was amazed at the difference it made in my shots when I did. The lens worked as I expected it would. I was impressed with my images. Not only does it work great, but it was affordable. In my opinion this is a great lens and a good investment to add to my camera gadget bag. I will get a lot of use out of this lens. There was not a users manual with the lens which would have been helpful to me, being new to all the options of a DSLR and accessories, however, I think with regular use and experimentation I'll have it down in no time.

I'm new to slr digital photography and this lens is just what I needed.
I've bought a couple of other lenses and this one is probably going
to be my favorite.
I just received it today and have already had some fun with it.
My husband and I are going to a preserve this weekend and I hope to
use this and my other lenses a lot!
Thanks so much for the great product and the super fast delivery.
Not to mention the extras that came with it.

These two attached lenses come with no instructions. It's a "fisheye" lens with a macro lens attached to it. I see no way of attaching the fisheye lens to the Nikon D3300 without the macro lens also being attached. Perhaps there's a stepdown ring that allows you to attach only the fisheye, but I haven't read anything about that. Again, it didn't come with instructions.

This lens, as I've used it on the D3300, does not produce anything that looks like a true fisheye image. The angle is a little wider than the kit lens set at 18mm. And then the image is circular to give the appearance a fisheye image at first blush. But it's really just a wide angle shot with a circular frame.

I do have a fisheye lens (FC-E8) for my older Nikon Coolpix 4300. That lens, used with the 4300, produces pictures that look like real fisheye images. The images include close to 180 degrees of whatever's in front on you. Anything up close is greatly distorted. That's what a fisheye lens does. This lens here doesn't do that at all. I would describe it as about a 14 or 16mm image (standard SLR camera) in a circular frame.

The resolution is below average, which is understandable since you're going thru a macro lens. It's not so bad that it makes me think I'm using the lens incorrectly. Macro shots are slightly more impressive, but for those, I would be more likely to use maximum resolution in raw for a regular picture, and then crop my way down in photoshop to something that looks like a macro image. Either that or get a good macro lens.

If you have the D3300, I would suggest foregoing this lens and instead use the Panorama Mode. I'm very impressed with this feature so far, which apparently (among Nikon DSLR's) is offered only on the D3300. You can get 180 degrees or more in a still photo with none of the distortion that you get with a fisheye lens. It's high resolution with great detail, i.e., not just a wide angle shot with the top and bottom chopped off to give the appearance of a panorama. It's not distortion-free every time, but it's very impressive nonetheless. The only drawback (so far) is that the camera only does the panoramas in JPG format. If I need a fisheye image, I'll use my old Coolpix 4300 with the FC-E8.

This is a very nice product that is for sure. I really did not know what to expect. The shipping speed was good and secure. It also came with its own carrying case which was nice as well. The product does an okay job at taking pictures. The price is the only reason i bought it. You for sure are not going to get the picture quality from this as you would a higher end model. If I had it to do over with I would not buy again.
