    no. save up for a proper lens. a wide angle conversion is not worth getting esp for a slr user.

    When I was Newbies, I think the same logic like you and bought it and now regreted. The image produced with a conversion lens, result is not so good, and now collecting dust.

    Your kit lens is good enough for now, use it and shoot more and start saving to buy a good lens later.

    Cheers!

    DSLR concept is to have the right lens for the right purpose. There is not shortcut to that. These 'conversion adapters' are a waste of money considering the lousy quality of the images.

    only buy super expensive converters that promise quality.
    Super expensive as in $400 and above.
