Anyone tried cheap fisheye adapters?
May 6, 2011

Hi all,
I'm tempted by those cheap fisheye lenses you can find on ebay.

They have usually a macro lens + a fisheye lens and cost around 30 bucks.

Multiply factor ranges from 0.25 (cost double) to more common 0.40-42-45.

Anyone can give some report on them?
Image quality degrades?
In which terms? Sharpness, CA, vignetting..


please avoid answers like "You get what you pay for" or "if you want decent quality go for sony adapter" or "a 30 $ lens is bad quality for sure", I'd like to know informations from real test by users that have them, and not just speculations.
