It came in a pretty big box stuffed with newspapers, which was nice, kept it safe. Inside the box the lens came in a nice little faux-leather pouch and there were instructions but me being a dude didn’t take any notice. So after 5 minutes of looking at it from different angles and unscrewing things then putting them back together and still not being able to get it onto the camera I looked at the instructions. They didn’t help. But after a bit more fiddling I got it! The lens comes in two parts joined together, which have to be joined to use the wide angle lens, but then you can take off the wide angle part and it becomes a macro lens!!! Two lenses for the price of one and that one only cost $120.00AUD.Sot the wide-angle lens joins with the macro lens, which joins the 52mm adapter, which joins your existing lens. Simple! As you can see from the pictures, it works really well!
This Is on a tripod, without the wide-angle, about a foot away from my double bass
Exact same everything, but now it has the wide-angle screwed on
Of course, you might not want that whole tunnel vision thing where the image becomes a circle, but that's one of the things that I like most about this converter. The more you zoom out, the more the image becomes distorted. If you don't want to distort the image, you just want to be able to fit more in, then zoom in all the way. Or you can go half n half where the lens in zoomed in enough to get rid of the tunnel vision, but out a bit to get some distortion.
And an example of the macro lens. This one is a strange one, although I haven't used a macro lens before, you have to be REALLY close to get it to work. This could just be that I haven't figured out the trick to it yet, but I'm not a big macro buff and don't plan to be, so I'm OK getting really close sometimes. Here's a flower.
