    Are you referring to the one that attaches to your lens and it becomes a wide angle kit?

    Sure, there is feedback. If you take the efforts to search the forum you will find related feedback. There's even a thread collecting example images when using such adapters. So far I have yet to see any positive feedback - unless you fancy distortions and lower image quality.

    Just to let you know, these 0.42x or 0.5x wide angle tele-converter are some ways the shops try to "chop" you.
    They will quote $100+ for it..

    Is this something what you're referring to?

    Second that, it is known as "vitacon" for a reason and just for your information Photo & Consumer Investments Pte Ltd is the owner of the brand.

    No need to test, as stated in this thread, it's been tested and slammed. They're rubbish, not worth more than 20-30 SGD. No point ruining your pictures with them.
