    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Cheap, works quite well on Canon EF or EF-S mounts.

    Build quality was surprisingly decent, no rough edges, etc.

    Cons:

    "manual" (single page on rice paper) is in Chinese.

    There is a screw in the ring closest to the camera body. Mine fell out. I think it prevents you from mounting the rings incorrectly (touches a metal tongue inside the mount).

    I'd probably recommend removing it.

    My L lens (yea yea) doesn't seem to want to lock all the time. I think it's the weight of the lens rather than anything mechanical

    OtherThoughts:

    Buy it with a tripod because DOF almost nothing and the magnification will

    A cable release / IR release is also probably a good idea / completely necessary.

    Bottomline:

    For the price, just buy it.

    Even though the "manual" is in Chinese, it doesn't matter.

    My Simple Manual -

    1. Stick it on, use the red dots for proper alignment.

    2. Set your lens to max zoom

    3. Set focus on "closest" and move in / out to get a rough distance

    4. Tweak focus by moving closer/further or using the MF dial.

    5. Snappy snappy.
