This review is from: Neewer® High Definition Auto Focus 0.45x 52mm Wide Angle Lens with Built-in Macro lens for Extreme Close-Up Shots for Canon EOS 650D/600D/550D/500D/1000D/450D/400D/350D/300D/100D/700D (Rebel T4i,Rebel, Rebel XT, Rebel XTi, Rebel XSi, Rebel XS, Rebel T1i, Rebel T2i, Rebel T3i), Nikon D90, D3000, D3100, D3200, D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300, D7000, and all Other Cameras & Camcorders with a 52mm Sized Lens Filter Thread (Electronics)
It fits on my nikon D3000 kit lens 18-55mm works great. I found a cool trick if you take the lens apart and flip the glass pieces it turns into a fisheye lens, so I got a wide angle lens and a fisheye lens.

How did you take apart the lens?

Wouldn't it be simpler to just buy a stepdown ring (guessing a 55mm to 58mm) and flip the whole Wide Angle Lens?

This is a 2-piece lens and it just unscrews but yes if you had adapters you could do that too. For macro you only use the small ring though without the big part.

That wasn't the question... I was asking how he took the lens apart for the Fisheye effect. Not macro.

Mike says:
there is a small metal ring that keeps the lens in place and you take a small flat head screw driver to remove the ring and then the lens can be taken out. Then all you have to do is flip the lens and put the metal ring back on it was really simple and took less than 5 minutes

Would you please add pictures comparing your lens at 18mm and then with this lens? I'm looking to add this lens to a 50mm Canon and want to know if it will give me a wider angle than my 18-135? Thanks!

Don't bother. It's just a cheap gimmicky lens. I wouldn't even really call it a lens. It's more like a toy. Hold this in front of your iPhone camera for cool special effects! If you care enough to ask that question, this isn't what you want. Unless you just want a cheap toy to play with for fun. I'd send you mine but it's not worth the shipping cost.

Disagree. It has it's uses. Just don't expect professional quality. It's something you buy to dab in to see if you enjoy the style of photography. I however would suggest extension tubs vs this.
