Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
1. accepts two AA batteries 2. has several lens adapters
Cons:
1. Not intuitive to use 2. does not seem to work well with the SLR metering system in automatic flash mode, so pictures taken appear with wrong exposure 3. on a standard lenses in the max angle strong vignetting occurs
Other:
Exposure can be compensated by using the camera in manual mode and adjusting the illumination
Bottomline:
Still glad I have this product. It is much more attractive to have experience with and make your own mind to see if one really need an expensive brand product
