Product Description

The Opteka .35x Ultra Wide Angle Fisheye Lens with detachable macro for Canon gives you a dramatic 180 degree view with a greatly exaggerated perspective when used with a digital SLR camera and it's existing lens. For example, the Opteka .35x will convert a 18-55mm lens into a 6.3-19.2mm fisheye. A powerful circular image is produced, floating within the frame. This fisheye lens is designed so it allows the lens to work with the camera's autofocus, auto exposure, auto metering and auto white balance functions. Hybrid aspherical lenses and multi-layer coating help you to produce sharply defined images with a minimum of flare and ghosting. The lens focuses as close as 1' (0.3m) from the lens.

Now you can take close-up shots like you never took before with the detachable 10x macro lens. Enables you to get much closer than the minimum focus of the standard camera lens - as close as 3 inches from the subject. Originally designed for dentists and medical use, the Opteka macro lens is now available to the public. Multi-coated HD elements provide unbelievable detail.

Nothing changes the way you see the world like High Definition², and no company does High Definition² like Opteka. In the professional setting, Opteka's glass optics define High Definition. Change the way you view the world. Enjoy outstanding detail, enjoy enhanced clarity, enjoy Opteka.

Well, I stumbled across this whilst looking for a different lens. When I saw the price my first thought was that this will be the usual cheap junk you'd find on eBay or similar. However I looked at the reviews and they are mostly positive and I was then sold on the idea of trying fisheye (a dedicated lens is a lot of money just to experiment with!), a bonus was that it also has a macro lens too.

Pros:
Well built - All metal construction, very sturdy.
Fisheye and macro in one unit.
Cheap - Affordable if you want to try fisheye.
Comes with nice carry case and lens cloth.
67mm Front filter ring.

Cons:
No Manual.
Dust Magnet - Lens attracts a LOT of dust.
AF doesn't work accurately/at all.
Front lens cap fits very poorly.

How to use:
To use as a Fisheye lens; Screw the macro lens to the fisheye lens, screw the appropriate adapter ring to your camera lens, then screw the Opteka lens to your camera lens.
To use as a macro lens; Simply unscrew the fisheye lens from the macro lens. (Max distance is around 2" with canon kit lens).

Initially I unpacked this and screwed the 58-52mm adapter (included) to my 55-250mm lens, screwed the macro and fisheye lens on and went "meh". Using this lens on a my 55-250mm doesn't produce a fisheye effect, all it does is widen the view to ~24mm equivalent, from 55mm on the image becomes VERY soft. The macro works but only really at 55mm, there after the edge again become increasingly soft.

I then tried the Opteka on my kit 18-55, better results, at 18mm you get the typical fisheye effect, at ~38mm the vignette isn't visible, but the fisheye effect become more like lens distortion than anything.

I'm currently a first year media student at university and I just really wanted something that would give a different outlook from the audiences point of view. I've got a Canon 450D and I've always been keen on fisheye lens photography yet never had the money for something deemed professional, thankfully I did some hunting and found this little beauty!

Long story short, I really can't fault this product or the company, I don't see why you would spend more on a lens when this, compared to others, is nice, cheap, solid, stable and well yeah faultless.

The delivery was extremely impressive considering it's being shipped from Brooklyn. Comes with a complimentary handy cleaning kit etc. Really worth the money, pleased I spent some of my student loan on this!

Because I'm so pleased with everything about the company, in the near future I'm going to be buying one of their lenses for my new video camera and one of their camera grips as well. Surely they'll be just as good!

Buy this!

Bought this for use on my next holiday and had to test it out as soon as I got home. Took a few test shots in the garden and they came out great. Really happy with this lens, the complimentary lens care pack and what with the quick delivery from the US...well impressed.

I've tried this for a while, and I've to say, I'm satisfied. It makes any lens a macro and a fisheye, adding 2 lenses, it doesn't give any problem with the autofocus on my Canon EOS 40D. Vignetting is heavy under 25mm of lens lenght, and it causes a "glamour blur" effect on the picture if mounted on a Canon AF 50mm F1.8 with shutter set at 1.8... but it doesn't cause any problem with aperture 2.5 or more.

A good product, cheap and really stable.

This Opteka .35 HD2 is a brilliant piece of photography equipment, As a Photography student I wanted to explore all areas of photography and I was especially excited when I came across the thought that I could do Fisheye photography, So I looked around at normal canon ef fisheye lenses for my DSLR and looking at the price put me straight off as a fairly decent full frame costs around £500 new and £300 second hand and being in today's tough economic climate I just don't have that sort of money lying around. So after a few discussions with my classmates I was introduced to the Fisheye attachment lens as my friend had recently brought one. As soon as I saw the price I just had to get one, It was quick delivery and the packaging was intact. It also has a great capacity to do semi-fisheye macro shots to which adds a further element for me to explore in my A-level photography course. Overall it's a great bit of kit, Sturdy and well built, great fun to use! The only criticism I could give this attachment lens is that you are going to get less detail around the edges and slightly less deviation too! This can be photoshopped out but after all it is a cheaper option :)

Took some stunning macro photos and the wide field photos were good. Although in the wide, focus is difficult, and some sharpness is lost- other wise brilliant and affordable and a great way to try macro and wide angle before investing in VERY expensives lenses.

I must say that the seller did not present this item properly. Presenting it as a "Lens for Canon EOS 1D, ... " naturally makes one think that this lens has a standard Canon EF mount, which it doesn't. It has a 52 mm thread and mounts not to the camera body but to the front of a regular lens. The phrase about "Professional High Speed Auto Focus" in Technical Details just adds to the misleading information as it supports the idea that it is an EF lens mounted on the camera body.

In the Technical Details they do write that "Adapters for 67mm, 58mm & 52mm Lenses Included" but I don't know how many people will understand that as, like me, many should think that this lens has an EF mount. Besides, the package shipped to me included only two adapters for 58mm and 52mm, there was no adapter for 67mm. And my main lens has a 67 mm fron thread, so I could not mount this lens. I have another telephoto lens with a 58 mm front thread. Of course it doesn't make sense to mount a wide angle extension on a telephoto lens, but just to try it I did that. It didn't produce a wide angle image, which is normal with a telephoto lens, no complaint about that. But the quality of the image was not good at all, it was far from being sharp in both "wide angle" and macro modes. Maybe, when mounted on a short focal length lens, it would result in a better image, but I could not check that because of the missing adapter. Will now contact the seller and try to get that adapter, then I will add the result to this review.

Addition. I have contacted the customer service and it appeared that they cannot ship the missing 67 mm adepter. So I am reducing my rating to just 1 star (before I gave 3). And have in mind that you should not buy this item if you have a lens with a 67 mm front thread.
