Great price and value
“So i knew when i bought this item it was not going to be the best quality so my expectations were very low. I received it and when i opeaned it was very surprised with the craftsmenship of the item. It is very solidly built and comes with all the lens adapters as stated in the description. I threw it onto my existing lens and took a couple shots before i could find a subject. From the first shot’s i was very surprised on how well they came out. “ – by RJ “Photographer”

Nice for the price
“As I wanna try the fisheye without spending way to much, this seems to be a good start before dealing with the real thing. It’s quite impressive with the way it performs; however, you get what you pay for in term of the quality of the image. It’s pretty fun filter and worth spending your money to get some fun shots. “ – by Grace T.

excellent fisheye conversion lens
“Works very well with Canon Rebel XS as a conversion lens, allowing my novice photographer daughter to experiment with fisheye shots without having to invest significantly more $$$ in an actual Canon fisheye lens. It’s a fun lens to experiment with/produces some cool shots, and my 5-star rating is based on understanding what this lens is and having realistic expectations for what it is capable of. “ – by White Dynamite

Great value, great photos, fun shooting
“I shivered when I saw the prices of fisheye lenses for my Canon XSi until I came across a few of these kind of lenses which instead of integrating into the camera itself, they screw onto the end of the existing lens. This affordable lens takes fantastic wide-angle photos, however there is a pretty extreme barreling effect which I expected after using a 35mm Fisheye by Lomo. I am amazed at the clarity of the photos I have obtained. I was expecting more distortion, chromatic aberration, etc. but this does not seem to be the case with this lens. “ – by Justin Ryan

Opteka HD² 0.20X Professional Super AF Fisheye Lens for Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT, XTi, XS, XSi
“I was impressed with the construction. The rubber grips work nicely, and the threads allow the lens to effortlessly and smoothly screw into your lens. It also comes with two adapter rings which allow it to fit anthing from 52 to 58mm. It fits my Canon 18 – 55mm kit lens with the largest of the two adapters. Without either of the two adapters, it fits nicely into my Canon prime f/1.8 50mm lens. It also comes with a mostly worthless cleaning cloth and a small, felt-like pouch to store the lens in when not in use. The pouch was a nice touch. “ – by J. DEMELO

Great fun with the fisheye
“Im so happy with my new Opteka Fisheye filter lens. It fits perfect with my new Canon Rebel Xsi (with the converter 58mm ring that is included). I have only started playing with it for a day, but as soon as I got it out of the box and on the my lens I was having fun. Great new toy, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to experiment with photography but is on a student budget. High quality product for a low price.” – by Cody J. Young

Opteka 0.20x Fisheye Lens
“I tested the lens outside in sunny conditions. I used a camera with a 1.6x crop factor (a Canon 400D). The center of the image seems decently sharp; the edges are expectedly blurry. On my 24mm lens, I can see the lens barrel at two sides of the photo. My 50mm lens does not show the lens barrel in the photo. Please see the two photos I uploaded to the product page for more information. “ – by Victoria Lawrence

I LOVE IT
“Straight out of the box, this lens converter is amazing. I could not wait to take it outside and give it a try— how did I go so long without getting one of these things?!? I’m sure the $600 real deal fisheye is higher quality, but really– $50. You can’t go wrong. The quality looks pretty good to me, and the build seems sturdy. With the included ring, I just twisted it right onto my 18-55 kit lens and ran outside. The colors are vibrant, it’s straight forward and easy to use. Get this lens! You will love it.” – by Emily

Fun inexpensive conversion lens
“This lens is quite nifty, and for the price the quality is good as far as the materials it is made out of. If you use the suggested settings of 18mm and focus at infinity it works really well. The higher your mm the less of the effect you will get, and after about 24mm its all gone. at 18mm your image is a complete circle, and once you start to zoom you lose that edge, but as you lose it you lose the effect. The edge of the lens cause a blur on the images, I’m thinking its due to the glass or coating on the elements that distorts it, but overall the center of your image is crisp and the blur isn’t that distracting.” – by Paul Lewis

Very nice lense, Great Price
“With this lens, I can get a good deal of the room into the picture, without any distortion at lower fish eye levels. Alternatively, you can turn the focus ring and make the scene all fit onto a sphere. That is a neat effect. But for real estate photography, just turn the ring a bit and you’ll get much more into the scene and little or no distortion at the edges. I highly recommend this lens to anyone who wants to play around with a Fish Eye lens but who does not want to pay too much. You get a really nice lens with this deal. Get it and have fun, on the cheap. “ – by J. Kurz
