Crystal Optics, anyone else?

About Crystal/Vision Optics -- it is the titanium add-on lenses saying hi-res. I got Crystal Optics macro and tele, saying Vision, for my 8080, and they really are strange in operation -- both need full tele zoom to avoid vignetting, tele does just a bit of extra magnification instead of 2x labelled, and macro baffles me as the 8080 does the same macroing without the convertor as with it on full zoom! There's a detachable lens at the bottom of the convertor -- what is it for? I am surprised that they are so useless while apparently of good mechanical and optical quality. They are advertised for camcorders as well, but are they of any use with 8080? How do the original Oly converters compare?
