    Smile Marco Wide Angle Lens????? huh?

    Hi, pple.

    Just bought a Wide Angle Lens 0.5X with Marco.

    The marco lens can also be deteched.

    However without the marco attached, I cannot use the Wideangle lens. 0.5x.


    but with Marco, its not as wide...

    Thats a werid theory, can any help??

    Many thanks...

    Cos I bought 1 too.. and indeed, it's written "MARCO" on the box..
    I wanted to exchange for a canon's WA lens, but the person keep asking me not to.

    From alan photo..
    I wanted to get canon original 1.... but he keep asking me to get that...
    I dun understand how it works too..
    oh, btw, the macro and wide angle lens can be detached..
    I didn't know that... haha...

    1st of all, ya, it can really take a wider picture..
    But I don't know if the macro will affect the quality as I've never use an original wide angle lens before...

    Ya..
    They really do have bad customer service..
    I also agree that they actually wanted to clear the "Vitacon's" brand, that's why they're being so pushy at that time..

    If you read other thread about Some other CSers asking about Wide Angle lenses, you would have realised that cheap does not always mean good.

    Other thread users have recommended the use of a brand called Raynox, which is made in Japan and the magnification is 0.66x,which is really sharp.
