Note: The maker supplied a review sample for evaluation, the opinion of the product is my own personal view

WA & Macro Conversion Lens:
This lens conversion kit consists of two lenses you need to use both to get the ultra wide angle effect (they screw together) the macro is used just on it's own with the front WA part unscrewed. This fits filter threads of 52mm which is common for Nikon kit lenses but you can use stepping rings if you wish on other lenses with different sized filter threads.

In the kit you get a small bag to hold the lens, front and rear caps (rear cap is screw on) Front filter size is 62mm if you wish to use one. This is quite well made metal casing and does add a touch of weight to a lens though not enough to really concern in use even on a plastic kit lens. Any camera with a filter thread can make use of this be it a DSLR or bridge type camera.

Optics on the Wide angle lens do show notable corner darkening at the widest angle (you can use this for effect), the solution to this is simple either zoom in slightly or crop the image either way you will have a wider field of view than normal. Possibly of more interest is the macro lens this unscrews from the main lens and gives an impressive super close focus ability (see posted examples) it's a great way to experiment for very little outlay. Optics are quite reasonable for a conversion lens (there is a reason why macro and ultra wide angle lenses are not cheap) at the wide end it's quite sharp across most of the frame it does drop off a bit at the edges but satisfactory for what's on offer. The Macro does well pretty sharp in the middle section it does drop off a bit on the edges but better than I expected if you are using a larger sensor camera you'll have tiny depth of field so stop the lens down a small sensor will offer greater focus depth here. AF can be used on both wide and macro though it will vary depending on the camera how well that performs.

Really for the asking price it's a fun low cost way to experiment with wider angles and macros you're not going to get the quality of a dedicated ultra wide angle lens or a full blown macro lens if you're pixel peeping, but it's quite respectable and worth investigating particularly for the macro capability.

I am just getting back into photography after several years not using my film based SLR kit. I went digital and bought the Nikon D3200. I saw this kit and bought it. The wide angle and macro are screwed together in one when they arrive. It fitted by d3200 lens perfectly. 52mm(!). You are buying an "adaptor" not a Nikon Lens so the quality will NEVER be the same as a dedicated lens. However really for the money it is an excellent buy.

The wide angle is good enough for those family shots, or landscape shots where you need extra width. The Macro is good enough for the odd close up shot. There is some loss issue on the Macro that you can get a blue "edge" to the right of objects and a "red" edge to the left of object. But don't let that stop you...in most cases you will be fine...buy it..its less than two bottles of cheap wine.

A good, affordable solution - I needed a wide angle lens for my Nikon D3200, just to solve a few situations. Branded full lenses would be too costly, given type and frequency of use, so this ad-on is the perfect solution: already tested it, results are more than Ok.

The macro extension is brilliant, i hook my camera up to my tripod and can now get waaaaay closer to the subject than i could with my kit lens, it delivers incredible macro shots. However I feel It takes a bit of getting used to but that can be sorted with a bit of messing about with your camera, also try not to screw the macro extension on the camera lens too tight, it gave me a fright when I couldn't get it off! The glass attracts A LOT of dust. Now for the 'super wide angle' bit.. It's very average, although you can clearly tell when it's used and when it's not and does bring a lot more into your frame. It's an experiment, it's fun and it's cheap! I recommend you get it.

Nikon D3100

Brilliant item. These are simple to use adaptors for your existing lenses. I have two Nikon lenses, which these conversions screw on to quite simply. The wide angle provides that house brochure effect, perfect for capturing panoramic shots. The macro conversion is basically a magnifying glass, but this is not a negative, it allows you to take excellent close up shots of tiny items (insects, flowers etc) with a manual focus. The conversions screw together and can be stored in the handy leather drawstring bag provided. Overall, extremely pleased with this item!!

It has some very positive reviews so this is purely my experience.I have found it to be more or less completely un-usable either for macro or as a wide angle, everything except the very centre is just fuzzy. I can't even begin to talk about the macro, of course it was dirt cheap but i did expect to get some sort of usage out of it, well, actually i have, I am using the wee pouch to house my macro extension tubes.

With this wide angle lens you actualy get a bit more wide angle from your original lens. But pictures are not so sharp, and you must use a bit of zoom on your original lens, or you'll get black spots on edges

Excellent !!! I screwed this sucker onto my Lumix lens and POW for literally no cash, I had awesome results, not to mention the macro option if you unscrew part of the lens.

Frickin awesome!
