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

Pros:
This thing is cheap, but built quite well. I have produced some nice pics with my 50 1.8 and the 18-55 using a flash light or the 430ex on wide (around. No glass means no deterioration of image quality!
Cons:
Just be careful mine had metal shavings left over inside from machining.
No contacts means you have no control over aperture, sorta (read my other thoughts)
Other:
If you want larger DOF, stop your lens down, press your DOF preview button and hold while you release your lens. It will stay stopped down to that aperture but require more light :)
Bottomline:
Great deal and easy way to get into macro photography, just buy it!!
