3.0 out of 5 stars Black Barrell if you have a 58mm, September 26, 2006
This review is from: 0.42X FISHEYE LENS W/ MACRO FOR CANON EOS DIGITAL REBEL [Camera] (Camera)
I have a canon GL2 and wanted a wide angle or fisheye. I have no real complaints about the quality of this lens, but do have a big warning. If you buy this for a 58mm camera, it comes with step up rings for you to get up to the 58mm but this creates a black barrell on the outside when you want the big wide angle shot. Though this can be a cool effect, it is probably not want you want. So be warned before buying, and get a different lens that is a true 58mm if you want to get an uncluttered fisheye effect. For the macro however since you are usually filming something way close, it isn't a problem.

Is this compatible with a canon 450d?

"...this creates a black barrell on the outside when you want the big wide angle shot" - Actually, the step-up ring is not the issue. You will always get the "tunnel" effect in fisheye mode, ring or no ring.

Carlos is correct. You will always have a black barreling with a fisheye lens.
