Lens is high quality, as well as solid feel metal construction. The nice leatherish bag was an unexpected nice bonus. Here is a photo of my deck using this lens.

So what do you get for 28 bucks?
I am a pro and thought i would give this a try before i go and drop 5 large on a real wide angle lens.
The Good:

Pretty nice glass for the money, in the pic with the wire rim of my readers the glass is pretty clear, better than i expected for the money for the macro only part. Given you are putting another layer of glass between your subject and the sensor i could see using this now and again. It did mess with the AF a little so I switched to MF and simply moved the camera closer till i got the focus point I wanted.

Doesn't take a lot of light away.

As for the wide angle, well it's ok. If I zoom up a little to get rid of the vignetting it seems to have mostly a usable area but......

Now for the Bad:

The focus drops off severely around the outer edges and there is some color aberrations to contend with along the edges as well. My pics have un-cropped/uncorrected, cropped/uncorrected, useable cropped/uncorrected, un-cropped/corrected at the 18-55 and finally un-cropped/corrected using the canon 8mm correction in adobe PS CS6. You can judge for yourself. As a pro I will toss this in the bag and I could see using it in an unrestrained crop situation but it's usefulness is limited at 16:9 crop.

Like I said, for 28 bucks what the hell, the macro works pretty well, the glass is great for the money and it could come in handy in some situations.

Picture taken of Gemini Meteor shower (12/14/2014) with Canon 70D, Sigma 18-50 F2.8-4.5 DC OS Lens with 67MM 0.43x Altura attachment:

I'm very happy with the new addition to my camera gear. This likely will not be a permanent addition to my main bag, but a nice piece to have for particular situations. The 67MM 0.43x Altura has really helped with my crop sensor at getting a lot more photographic area in one shot. The macro is a nice addition, but I don't see using it that often.
I've purchased this primarily for night photography and being able to effectively capture a night shot for a longer shutter speed. With this addition, I can capture 30 second exposures on a crop sensor camera without any star trails. Before adding this attachment, the shutter speed was set at 18 seconds. Anything longer than that and star trails began showing up.
There is distortion because it is unavoidable with an attachment like this. It is not extremely noticeable and any photographer with medium to advanced skills will enjoy this attachment. I don't recommend over tightening the lens since the larger size is easily torqued. If the previous reviewer ruined a lens because it was too tight then in my opinion it was way over tightened in the beginning or they cross threaded it which can happen on any fine thread such as these.

As a Realtor I often have to take shots in small rooms such as baths. This allows me to take the shot with enough width to make sense to the viewer.

I absolutely LOVE it! I bought it as an attachment for my 50mm 1.8 Nikon lens in the 58mm size. I also purchased the adapter ring so I could use it with my 18-55mm kit lens that came with my Nikon D5200. It takes clear, crisp photos and gives me plenty to play with.

I do wish I could use JUST the wide angle portion alone (which is the ONLY reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5) but I'm still happy with the purchase. I've used it on macro only and it takes incredible close ups. The detail is wonderful. And then using it with the wide angle, I was able to capture some great pics as well.

I've tried to attach pics - not sure if they will work but I wanted to include them so you can see the quality.

Bottom Line: This is an add-on lens, meaning it attaches to an existing lens to augment it's focal length. If you are on a budget, new to photography, and do not mind chromatic aberrations and vignetting, get this. You can enjoy it with limitation. If you have $100+ to spend buy a true fisheye lens and you will get 45%+ more image than this.

Pros:
Adds some wide angle perspective to your images but it's not the 0.43x it claims. If I understand that correctly then it should make my 18mm lens into a 7.7mm lense, however, I have a 6.5mm lens and it's not even close. My real fisheye gets 45% more image. See images for a comparison against a 6.5mm fisheye wide angle lens.
Macro works but is limited.
For the price I'm okay with the limitations. I will use it.
Some reviewers said the build quality is bad, but I dropped mine almost 4 feet on tile flooring and there was no damage. Seems solid to me.

Cons:
-Wide angle is NOT as much as it claims. If I understand the 0.43x correctly then it should make my 18mm lens into a 7.7mm lense, however, I have a 6.5mm lens and it's not even close. See images for a comparison against a 6.5mm fisheye wide angle lens.
the lens causes chromatic aberrations.
-Heavy vignetting in the corners. You can literally see the edges of the lens in the image anywhere under 24mm. You can crop the image to remove the vignetting but then you end up losing a lot of the image.
-Chromatic aberration
