There seems to be some conflicting details. Is the lens glass or plastic? The product details says glass, a reviewer says plastic! 29 Jun 2014
I bought the product thinking it is glass. I don't know how to test to see whether it is. I will say that I'm very pleased with the lens and have had really good results, bearing in mind it's low cost. Sorry that I can't give you a definitive answer.
Hello I have a Canon 50mm fixed focal length lens I use on my EOS - this has a 52mm thread. Will this close up lens work ok for me? 2 Jan 2015
Yes it will work, just make sure you use manual focus on the lens and not auto and with a bit of practice some very good results can be achieved.
No. It will not. It fits only 52mm filter thread.
With this fitted to your lens are you still able to use a ring flash? Are both ends threaded? 10 Feb 2015
Hi John, I haven't got a ring flash but was thinking on buying one, didn't think about that, so great question, it only has one threaded end... but I thought these ring flashes or LED light rings would come with some kind of way of attaching themselves to the end of the lense... somehow if not I would just use it loose next to the object or holding the light with my left hand or somethign of the kind. However I did this macro holding the macro lense on my hand and just focusing into it.. https://500px.com/photo/91686195/magic-flowers-by-laurais-arts so perhaps you could put the ring to your 50mm and hold the 10x glass on your hand ... I did mine in daylight. :D
Yes but you need to be super close up to the object for it to be a clear crisp picture
Yes as long as it has a 52mm screw thread on the end of the lens. I use it on a Nikon 3200, it will fit any lens with a 52mm filter thread. It is great for the price, works very well. Need to turn auto focus off on lens.
Will this work for a Nikon D5300? its a relatively new model. i also have the 18-55mm Nikkor lens. 2 Jul 2014
I can't see why not as the lens will be the same or similar to that on my D3100. So long as the filter thread is 52mm then this will fit. It works best if you remove any UV filter ring before using the adapter as it does move it slightly forward and affects the magnification.
