    These aren’t the greatest around, you can’t really beat the price. The wide angle is a great little toy until I can save enough for a 10-22mm. The 2.5x tele this comes with is pretty much worthless. I get far more resolution from a crop on my t2i using my lenses(kit 18-55, 55-250, and nifty fifty) than bothering to put the 2.5 tele on. The wide is pretty fun though. Overall mediocre at best, but not bad. I’d skip this package and just pick up the wide by itself 58mm 0.45x WIDE Angle LENS ~INCLUDING LENS BAG~ for Canon Rebel T1I XT XS XSi XTi + MORE! 58 MM by itself and skip the tele.

    On my 50mm 1.8 with a 52-58mm adapter the tele works ok but really soft even stopped down quite a bit. The .45x wide at 18mm works pretty good, little soft, but it works.

    On my kit 18-55 is the tele works a bit, but at 55mm the center 1/4 is almost usable but some serious vignetting(dark corners). The wide gives a fisheye view at 18mm with pitch black corners but I was expecting that and completely happy with it.

    On my 55-250 the tele is similar to the 18-55 experience at 55mm, but at 250 where it would actually be useful it’s absolutely unusable.

    Reviewing the wide alone I would have given 5 stars because it’s a great price for a fun toy, but because of the horrible tele in this kit I almost went to 2 stars.

    I will get some sample pics up asap.

    Used this with some lens adapters with my canon g11. I am completely happy with the purchase. I’m not a pro and these aren’t for pros. I’m a dad with two children who likes to mess with his camera. Until I can take sweet shots in manual with this excellent camera, I don’t see a lot of point in investing in expensive equipment. So, this meets my needs. The amazon star scale doesn’t accurately reflect the true rating so I’ll make my own.
    Value – 5 stars
    Instrumental value – 3 stars (you won’t get sweet shots with the telephoto converter unless you want a halo of blur and distortion around the center.)
    Weight to value ratio – 1.1:1 (nice heft. Kind of made me feel like it was going to be better than it actually was.)
    Amount of time a dad will enjoy screwing around with this with a perceptible feeling of self-righteousness while patiently coveting sweet camera equipment – countless hours
    Recommend? – for dads with the same general feeling as I described above – yes
    – for pros – you probably didn’t finish or even start reading this review
    – for everyone else that bought a sweet dslr – don’t even think about it. You bought the sweet stuff so don’t go “amateur” now
