The reason I only gave it 4 stars is beacuse the glass seems a bit splotchy. Perhaps a good cleaning would help. I'm also a bit disappointed in the "wallet" they came in. I was hoping for something a bit softer rather than nylon and nylon nets. But then again, what can you expect for the price?
When I purchased them, I wasn't really sure what to expect. I'm sure this is only because I wasn't reading enough. But just in case I'm not the only one unclear about this, let me explain a little how these work. They don't turn your lens into a zoom lens. What I mean by this is that if you are standing in one spot with your bare lens and you can focus on something, when you apply the filter you will not get a closer focus while standing in that same spot. You physically have to get closer to the subject to get focus. The higher magnification you are using the closer you have to get. I would say that with the 10x filter you have to be somewhere around 4 inches or so away from the subject to obtain focus.
These filters are not going to be something you can use to get macro shots of insects and bees and such (unless your brave and want to get 4 inches away from a bee, which I'm not). You will, however, be able to get closer to your subject and still be able to lock focus. On a 50mm f/1.8 the min. focus distance is 18 inches. I love the 50mm lens but I do, from time to time, want to get just a touch closer than the lens allows. That is where these filters come in handy for me.Read more ›
The +1 filter significantly cuts the minimum focal distance (perhaps by half?) while the +10 cuts it nearly nothing. As you move from +1 up through +10 the softness of the images does increase significantly. These filters will not replace a good macro lens, but they do give another option while shooting.
Not a perfect product, but these filters have certainly found a place in my camera bag.
+ Good quality glass filters
+ Great deal for macro photography
- It's still not as good as a macro lens
- Included filter wallet is sub-standard
- They work well with my Canon nifty 50mm 1.8
- As other reviews said, the filters do not magnify, but rather they allow your camera to get closer to subjects
- Using the 10x filter on my 50mm, you will be able to capture fly's compound eyes
Unless defective, we really should not complain about this product at this price point. Used correctly, they will work great for you.
