Good but very simple – Macro Lens Adapter for Canon Reviews

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

Pros:
Very cheap. Durable: it's completely metal, no plastic details. With all that, still low weight.
Cons:
As it does not have electric contacts, you can control the aperture on manual lens only, and this is not a 'con' - just what you should expect from this item. But different combinations of rings turn your lens to different positions, so an aperture scale is in non-handy place sometimes.
Other:
Bayonet release knob could have more ergonomic shape, something like a slider. Round shape is 'non-intuitive' for your fingers here.
Bottomline:
It works best with manual lens, so prepare to carry both adapter and manual lens in your bag, or buy SKU 72650 or 154364 to work with your 'native' optics.
