I'm actually looking at these trying to decide if one would hold me over until I can buy an actual fisheye lens.

Anyone have one? I found this guy, he's got a pretty nice feedback number and feedback looks positive so far. He's offering this:

WILL WORK WITH ANY LENS WITH FILTER SIZE 52mm & 58mm
WILL WORK ON ANY 52mm & 58mm FRONT THREAD

Digital Optics Deluxe .42x Wide Angle Lens Black With Macro
Lens Bag Included.
Lens Covers are included.
3 Pc. Cleaning Kit.
Universal Screen Protectors.
Ring Adapter 46 / 52mm
Ring Adapter 46 / 58mm

He says it will work with my 18-55mm lens. I'm always skeptical about things on Ebay if I've never used the seller or don't know someone that has what I'm looking for.

Any response is great and appreciated, thank you in advance!

It does not seem to be a fisheye, thing, but a "normal" wide angle adapter?

as for the good feedback, watch out anyway.
i was about to buy from jandkcameras on ebay
and i checked his personal site and it looked oh so good.
turns out i go to resellerratings.com and hes a scam.
so just from past experience, i would say be careful

Thanks Dylan, I'm going to wait and get a lens in the future vs. an adapter.

ColdRain, it's an adapter you use on your existing lens. I don't know anything about it at all.
