Well, I am very new to pro photography. Recently, got myself a Canon S5IS.
Then read about it's better to use adapter with hood or filter for nice photos. So forgetting to research first cause was still excited over my new cam, I went pass a shop in orchard and went in to ask about the lens adapter and stuffs.
The shop salesman intro me to a $38 adapter and a $62 (all before GST) Sunblitz CPL lens. At first I do not feel anything strange. But after playing around with the filter, I found the wordings printed on the side of the filter lens are PEELING off....OMG. Then I started to worry, and try to search to find out more about it. The filter lens is 58mm Sunblitz CPL lens. However, I do not seems to find any info on this particular lens.
Am I taken for a ride by the salesman? Is my purchase over board in term of price?
Pro photographers, please help this newbie soul. Thanks. At least I can learn something from this lesson if that is that case of me being taken for a ride.
