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

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    - Great product finish; - The glass is very thick as a magnifying; - It fits well in my Canon 58mm lens; - The macro resulted is really closer than the zoom can catch; - It comes in a plastic package with thin foam, so it can be well kept in the camera bag.
    Cons:
    - It focuses only on the center of the picture.
