    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:Very useful if you need to photograph very small objects very close. No need to buy a separate macro lens, this thing turns your normal lens into a macro lens! Well packaged, nice and solid small plastic box. Cons:The surface was dirty or dusty, I clearly noticed some smu... Read more

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:Did not have great expectations for this lens, it was cheap and I thought it will bi a gimmick, but I was surprised. For this kind of money you get a great macro effect, sure it is not the best, but with extensions and this filter on a lens you get some really nice macr... Read more

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:Proven and Macro with standard portrait lens. Cons:Almost nothing: it's a very good product for that price. Maybe the case could be better, as it is a simple plastic box with a soft sponge and nothing more. The upper part of the lens is not protected. OtherThoughts:Used... Read more

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day Pros:Well-packaged. Easy to fit onto Nikon lens (Nikon D5100, using 52 mm thread) or onto existing filter. Shallow depth of focus. Makes it possible to get within 4 cm of motive. Cons:Obviously only for close-up jobs. No landscapes here! Seems to require extra care when meteri... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:At this price it's a real steal! Useful both for serious and experimental/funny photography. Cons:Apart from the expected aberrations that start around 20-25% around the center of the picture, nothing really. Well, maybe some practical thing: one gets so close t... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:Build quality is very good, thread is solid and the ring feels heavy. Glass is well housed and has no visible defects and optical quality of filter is good enough. It's extremely quick to deploy if you ever happen to find something small and interesting. Cons:yo...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:I was in doubt when I ordered if this will fit my Nikon D40's package 18-55 Non VR lens . . and when I received this item, it fits perfectly into the groove of the lens. The camera doesn't seem to auto-focus when this filter is fixed. But I guess the manual focus is also... Read more

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:Very cheap macro filter, I dont want to invest in a macro objective yet so this was a very good buy. They magnify your photo alot, and they are really cheap. If you have a dslr and are interested in taking photos of small things I would recommend this. This would also b... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:*Cheap *Great for trying out macrophotography *Easy to carry around Cons:*some chromatic aberration *limited barrel distortion. If you're using it on a cheap telephoto, it's definitely noticeable, but nothing unexpected *limited focus range, I'd say <1cm de... Read more
