5.0 out of 5 stars great lens for the money, August 14, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: .43x Wide Angle/Macro Lens for Canon 18-55mm, 55-250mm, 75-300mm III, 70-300mm IS USM, 24mm F2.8, 28mm F1.8, 50mm F1.4, 65mm F2.8, 85mm F1.8, 90mm F2.8, 100mm F2 & 100mm F2.8 lens (Camera)
This lens is fantantic for the money. I take a lot of macro shots and didn't want to invest in a big clunky separate lens. This does the trick perfectly.

I just upgraded to a digital SLR and didn't want to buy a separate lens. This screws onto the existing lens and not only does the macro but the wide angle too. I can leave it on my regular 28-55mm lens all the time.

You do get a "tunnel" effect at the corners at the widest angle but if you zoom in just a bit , it disappears. I kinda like the effect with the tunnel on some photos.

It is what it is for the money- a great value.

I am not sure I understand your question.

I just stuck it on my 18-55mm lens that comes with my camera. I never take it off.

on my camera which is a relatively new Canon Rebel t2i, I leave the mcaro/lens on all the time. What I really l like about it is that you can shoot macro or wide angle and it focuses automatically- no need to remove/change lenses etc. In the old days with SLR you had to put on the macro lens, remove the macro, put on the regular lens etc...

Did the macro lens come with an attachment ring or did the macro lens screw on by itself?
