5.0 out of 5 stars For the price this is fantastic
Great. On my Canon EOS1100D 18-55mm standard lens this really extends the photo, even when you reduce it a bit to compensate for the cut off corners. Personally i really love macro work and the macro seems to work really well so I'll probably end up using that one more for experimental stuff - making this a real bargain for 2 new effects. I haven't uploaded any photos yet...

1.0 out of 5 stars 2x telephoto lens adapter - a compromise too far
This review is for the 2x telephoto lens adapter.

As it had a 58mm thread, I bought one to try with my fujifilm 50-230 lens to see if it would be a cheap way of giving it a bit more reach. Though the ad refers to Canon models, I can't see why it shouldn't work with other makes and lenses with the right thread. I've only received today, so no exhaustive testing,...

I am sure this won't compete with more expensive lenses, but if you want a wide angle lens on a budget, this lens does the job.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun for the price., 8 July 2014
This review is from: 58mm 0.45x Wide Angle + Macro Conversion Lens for Canon Rebel XS T5i T4i T3i T2i T1i T3 6D 7D 70D 60D 700D 650D 1100D 1000D 600D 50D 550D 500D 40D 30D 350D 400D 450D 30D 100D LF37 (Electronics)
For the price, you can't complain. Although as others have commented there is some distortion at the edges, I'm happy to include it as a feature of my photos rather than add the effects later with Photoshop! :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice way to start experimenting Wide Angle Photography, 19 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 58mm 0.45x Wide Angle + Macro Conversion Lens for Canon Rebel XS T5i T4i T3i T2i T1i T3 6D 7D 70D 60D 700D 650D 1100D 1000D 600D 50D 550D 500D 40D 30D 350D 400D 450D 30D 100D LF37 (Electronics)
Advantages: If you do not wish to invest in a Canon Wide Angle lens, then this is the best solution. It easily fits and is simple to work with. I would recommend to start with this lens as an enthusiast and then move on to more professional canon Wide Angle lenses. I have been using this now for sometime and Landscape pictures as well as Monument pictures are amazing.

Limitations: Mind the crop at the edges though and sometimes the AF function on the camera lens may act strange.

Overall: A great Value for money product to experiment for a Beginner / Enthusiast

1.0 out of 5 stars 2x telephoto lens adapter - a compromise too far, 24 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is for the 2x telephoto lens adapter.

As it had a 58mm thread, I bought one to try with my fujifilm 50-230 lens to see if it would be a cheap way of giving it a bit more reach. Though the ad refers to Canon models, I can't see why it shouldn't work with other makes and lenses with the right thread. I've only received today, so no exhaustive testing, but the shots taken are consistently substandard. The fujifilm lens is typically highly resolving with nice sharpness at full telephoto range. The optical compromise with the adapter is so great that cropping a shot with my fujifilm lens alone gives much better results. Focus speed drops signficantly, sharpness likewise. With my lens at 50mm, the compromise to the shot is not so great (but renders the adapter pointless with a 50-230mm zoom). At full telephoto range, it's difficult to focus accurately and a fuzziness takes over much of the image.

The lens arrived quite dusty too - and on unscrewing the thread cover, there was some fluff/dust in the thread - not promising for quality control.

It's a cheap product and IMO is likely to handicap rather than add to the possibilities. As it's cheap, I thought it was worth a punt. I like to experiment and turn up pleasant surprises in the process. Not so with this lens with my set up. After further attempts to get better captures, I've decided to return it as I know I won't have use for it.

I' m enjoying the wideshots, I don't mind the black corners, I dont have the qualifications to judge as an expert, so 5 stars from someone with little expectations.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and gives poor output, 23 Oct 2014
This review is from: 58mm 0.45x Wide Angle + Macro Conversion Lens for Canon Rebel XS T5i T4i T3i T2i T1i T3 6D 7D 70D 60D 700D 650D 1100D 1000D 600D 50D 550D 500D 40D 30D 350D 400D 450D 30D 100D LF37 (Electronics)
aside from my order arrived 2 days late, this is not worth! Macro lens is useless. It does not focus and gives a blurry output. On the side of wide angle lens, its output got a black edges. seems you work a vignette style and it was not my type. cheap product for a cheap output. i am not recommending this product.
