First off, mind the offensive banner but it certainly express the frustrations and anguish of most customers that communicated with us on how they got fooled. While it is always a two sided story accounts to every injustice, these customers who got ripoff have somehow similar emotions.
Ps- Banner because of reported too offensive!
Another important disclaimer to note is the brand manufacturers of these products are not necessarily to be held accountable for the price and quality.
So the introduction begins.
Wide angle with macro lens attachment are great to have, and the quality differs from manufacturers to manufacturers. The RSP or recommended selling price remains the distributor’s right or is it so? We have many customers praising the usefulness of the creation of these little known camera lenses, while some simply sting at their purpose. However so, it is the particular consumer’s right to justify what he or she paid. If the customer feels happy about both the price and quality, then what is left to be said?
Sitting on the fence, we like to stress that the quality and performance of these wide angle macro lens depends on the user’s adaptability, experience and creativity. We cannot simply blame the horse for losing the race to a donkey. The handlers may be the issue.
Just another off topic case on wide angle converters. Panasonic releases 4 different conversion lens for use with its Panasonic Lumix G lenses in early 2012 and the price tags on these converters are on the high side. Conversion lenses are still very much in demand by a loyal legion of photography/ videography veterans even till today, and the value of these converters are strongly debatable.
As for the difference and similarity of these wide angle macro lens, there may be difference in terms of quality and durability despite the similarity of their looks. Camera lenses or more specifically lens converters are more complex than what we perceive, and it involves more than just lens construction, coating and materials.
