    is vitacon conversion lens good ?

    guys, am using EOS 500D pair with the 50mm f1.8 lens

    am looking to take some macro shots, but find that a macro lens is still an overkill for a newbie like me.

    so would like to know is the vitacon 0.45x wide angle/macro 52mm conversion lens good for me?

    i cant seems to find much information about conversion lens by googling if compare to extension tube or close up filter. I had tried it at a local shop and it seems quite good (priced at less than RM300 at a shop in Penang).

    Any comment guys? ;p

    PS: havent tried a close up filter or extension tube yet. I take most of my shots at indoor with low light condition, so extension tube might not be a good option rite?

    Lenses are designed to perform optimum without slapping another piece of glass infront. The conversion lens will only degrade the original lens optic.

    i used that b4 with my 1000D kit (oredi sold to my buddy), basically only the image at the center looked ok, the rest, color distorted~!! especially with the 0.45x wide angle conversion lens add on.. for macro, i still recommend the filter type..
