All the people trying to say that these lenses are horrible are the same people who turn up their noses at a tripod because it's not made from titanium. If you had a wide angel or telephoto lens and something happened to it, no, this won't give you the same quality photos as your $2000 lens. If you just want to take better photos with the 1 lens you have, here's what you need to know:

Telephoto lens - I took shots with it attached to my 18-55mm and 55-300mm lenses. From 18-35mm there is darkness in the corners. From 18-45mm there's noticeable bowing toward the edges but past 45mm it's almost completely gone. From 100mm and up there is blurring around the outside of the image, so don't think you can turn your 300mm lens into a 600mm. That said, as long as you keep things in the 45-100mm range, eveything looks great. Not great enough to blow up on a poster or submit to Nat Geo, but odds are you don't have a camera good enough for that anyway.

Wide angle lens - Again, used this on both lenses. At 18mm, there is some darkening at the corners, but by 20mm it's gone. Everything stays clear up to 55mm. Anything over this and the edges of the image start blurring, so you won't be able to get a wide zoomed in shot of your 20 cousins from the other side of a football field. That said, from 20-55mm the images are equally as good as the telephoto attachment.

Macro Lens - Tested on both lenses. From 18-30mm there is extreme bowing. At 85mm and up there is a strong haze surrounding whatever you've focused on. Between those ranges though, everything is clear. You can get some pretty close up shots with this thing. It's roughly 10x and works with the +1 2 & 3 Vivitar macro attachments, however the +10 doesn't work because the glass touches before they are screwed tightly together.

Bottom Line - These were clearly designed to word with the 18-55mm lenses that basic Nikon DSLRs come with, and they work great. For less then $30 you can't beat what you get.

I received a Zeikos 2X Telephoto lens and a Vivitar 0.43X wide angle converter with Macro. I tested both lenses indoors and outdoors using the Nikor kit lens (AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm) and an AF-S Nikkor 55-200mm lens, both in autofocus mode. The wide angle convertor performed well with both lenses. My only complaint was small dark areas on the corners of some of the outdoor pictures. The Telephoto worked well with the 18-55mm lens, both indoors and outdoors. Unfortunately the focus was soft with the 55-200mm lens. This could probably be overcome if you are good at manual focusing, but is a definite problem when using autofocus. In short I am pleased with the wide angle lens, but disappointed with the 2X as I had really planned on using it with the 55-200mm lens. The problem may not be the telephoto lens, but the focusing ability of the 55-200mm lens. Either way it is not usable for what I had initially intended it for.

The price is excellent for two lenses and I am keeping them, which is why I gave it four stars.

I have a Nikon D3100. These fit right out of the box. The wide angle lens seems to work well with the few test shots I have taken so far. Like another reviewer I noticed some shadows, the edges of the lens I presume, on my pictures but only with the 18-55 lens and so far only when dialing it back for the widest angle shot. Should be easy to crop this out. I did not notice the same problem with the 55-200 lens but I have not yet had a chance to extensively test yet. I will try to update the review after the weekend. It is of course not the same as a true wide-angle lens but for the money its worth it especially if your on a budget. The telephoto lens also seems to work well, I took a few test shots and they were pretty clear. So far I am pleased with the results and cannot see sending them back. I don't think anyone will be disappointed so long as they remember these are just attachments and they have their quirks. It will take some practice to learn to use them to maximum effect. One last note I would add is this, use manual focus with these, I say that primarily because of their weight.

***UPDATE***
I have used these a bit more now. Still happy with it. Just remember these are adapters not dedicated wide angle and telephoto lenses.

I'm a recent photography enthusiast. I wanted to have a a few lenses for my nikon d5100. I have the 18-55 vr and 55-200 vr lens and this set just makes it that more complete for a novice. Both lenses fit and work perfectly on my d5100. Right out of the box, you can feel it's a quality product for the material it was made with. No gripes or complaints about this order. Both items worked per description and that's what matters most. The added bonus is the letter from the president of the company, with a signature... The letter pretty much backs up the product 100%. i'll order from them again, without hesitation, if i need anymore accessories.

The quality of the product itself is great; no complaints there, but don't expect "telephoto" or "wide angle" quality photos with these adapters. You'll get somewhat closer or wider shots but the lens does not give you the clarity you would get with a devoted telephoto or wide angle lens.There is a lot of edge distortion and blur, which is fine if you're going for an artsy effect, but I wasn't. Just know what you're photographing before you shoot and these adapters can work well with trial and error.

Both these lenses are very high quality, come with their own little storage bags, and work well with my camera (Nikon 3100). In reading the reviews, I thought that only the wide angle would be good; however, both of them do the job. I suspect that some of the reviewers who found fault with the telephoto lens were attaching it to (perhaps) their own 200+ mm lens...it seems a lot to expect the equivalent of a 400+ mm lens to be ultra clear. For my set-up, though (one 18-55 mm lens), they both work quite well.

Wide angle is great for the money. It does show vignetting at 18mm-20mm, but beyond that it is fine. If you are looking for perfection in image quality from corner to corner then do not buy this. Corners get blurry, but still gives a good wide angle effect.

2.2x Telephoto: I had to wrestle with this one to find where it is even usable. Like most people that bought this, I immediately grabbed my 300mm lens and popped the 2.2x telephoto only to confirm that images are very blurry and not usable. After some playing around with the lens I found that it does produce usable images from 30mm-135mm. However, from 18mm-29mm on APS-C camera images were clear at the center with ugly vignetting. From 135mm-300mm the whole image was blurry. At 30mm recommended aperture is f/4.5 or higher. At 135mm recommended aperture is f/8 or higher. I generally found that this lens performs poorly with wider aperture and longer focal lengths. Now that I found a window of application for this lens, is it worth using? I'm not so sure since at 135mm with the 2.2x telephoto you're right around 300mm. With only a small portion of the center being in focus-i think I'll stick with the 300mm lens and no 2.2x adpater. If all you have is 18mm-55mm kit lens and you don't want to buy anymore lenses than this lens could have some great usability.

These were high quality conversion lenses and not Wide Angle or Telephoto lenses that cost hundreds of dollars. They are Vivitar lenses and have excellent optics. For their intended use you could not ask for better. Arrived early so I could enjoy them that much sooner. Quality construction, they fit easily on my Nikon D40.

when I got the lenses I was not sure what to expect. Now I am so happy to got them. They work great on my D80. Just do not forget to order the adaptor. I did that mistake but I contacted Walter, the Sales manager, and he full filled his word of 100% costumer hapiness with the lenses.
I had never meet a business person as honest as Walter.
Now I will do business with Goja any time.

I am admittedly a novice with my new Nikon D5200 camera and everyday is a challenge to make the best of my investment. I purchased these lens enhancements before my camera arrived but when I did get my camera I tried these lenses right away. I love taking photos of flowers and things in nature up close and persona so the macro feature is very useful. It was my intention to use these as a supplement to my 18-55 mm lens and my 55-200 lens. I think the results have been very good and I'm enjoying the experience of taking photos with my new Nikon.
