Bought this lens specifically as as attachment to a step up ring mounted to a Holga film camera lens. Provides a wide angle circular image on the negative. Uses are limited but for the low price the effect is desirable for certain impressions. Solid metal construction, good lens caps, and it comes in a padded cloth draw string bag.
I bought this lens to use on a step up ring attached onto the regular lens on a Holga camera to create a circular image negative. It performed as anticipated and was a value for this infrequently used lens and image look.
Picked up the fisheye conversion lens hoping for the Vivitar quality of yester-year ... and I was pleasantly surprised. The lens seems to be good quality construction and optics ... for a price that is a fraction of a true fisheye lens. Pictures display a good fisheye approximation with excellent central sharpness and decent edge sharpness. All in all, a great addition for a very reasonable price.
Although it is a camcorder lens, I am using it as an attachment on the front of the standard lens on a Holga medium format film camera. It provides a very wide circular image and great depth of field when the Holga lens is set at infinity. It's use will be limited but the price was very attractive.
