Wide Angle Adapter, 4 July 2013
This is good piece of kit that does what says on the box - excellent value for money. A couple of caveats - the image is not as sharp and clear as it would be with a dedicated wideangle lens but at this price I can't complain. Yes there is a little vignetteing on the corners and some fish eye distorion but nothing a few minutes post processing won't fix. However i have found the answer to the vignette problem which affects all these add on wide angle lens - use a bigger lens with a step up filter ring. I have a 67mm fitting wideangle adapter as well as this 52mm one. If I use the 67mm fitting one with a 52mm-67mm step up ring there is no vignetting at all on my Nikon DX 18-55mm lens even at 18mm. This means that I can use all of the images I take without having to crop anything out which is major saving. I take lots of photos of rooms in holiday cottages and B&Bs so really need a good wideangle. All that said the bigger adapter and the step up ring does make for a big heavy lump on the end of your lens!
