4.0 out of 5 stars can do some good thing, 25 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Opteka HD² 0.20X Professional Super AF Fisheye Lens for Canon EOS 1D, 5D, 6D, 7D, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, 60D, 100D, 300D, 350D, 400D, 450D, 500D, 550D, 600D, 700D, 1000D, 1100D & 1200D Digital SLR Cameras (Electronics)
I bought this lens adapter before going on holidays and I have to admit that I'm pleased with the results.
I'm a professional camera user working in the vfx industry but I do photography only as a hobby.
This product is really good for Hobby photography, just for that, so if you are looking for something that creates sharp and full focus fish-eye effect, this won't work.
Said that, you have to consider a few things:

-It's a cheap product if you compare with professional lens and it emulate the effect quite nicely. I used it with my 550D with a standard 18-55 lens.
Using the 18FL, it create black edge all around the centre, you like it or you hate it. THe positive fact is that everything is on focus.

Using a 35ish FL it doesn't create black edge on the sides, but at the edge of the picture will be quite blurred whilst the centre of it will be on focus and sharp enough. it gives probably the best result tho.

using the 55 doesn't make too much sense XD .

-It works good for indoors, ceiling or for artistic purpose.
-the materials are good too

I would recommend it if you want to give a different touch to your shots and try something different. Caution : it can be addictive !
