    not worth it at all. it will just degrade the overall IQ of ur lens, and i bet whoever's trying to sell it to u will definitely charge u expensively when it doesnt even worth that much.
    Google is your friend. Make use of it.

    It should cost around 40-60.

    They also come in various other brands, like Steinzeiser and whatnot, but basically it's all the same crap. If you wanna try such converter you can check Buy & Sell, plenty of people wanna get rid of this thingy. Likely in their cases the shop owner was more successful than with you It pays off to be careful if a shop offers something a bit too emphatically.

    all it takes is a few seconds of impulsive urge buying due to the 'must-have' syndrome. glad that you did not fall into it. there are numerous equipment discussions in CS. just search and read those reviews. a secondary online review also helps before deciding whether you are going to buy or otherwise.

    if a salesman told you of nil stock and that's it, fine. but not when they suggest a totally alien brand and function type of lens that you are unheard of; walk off to save your wallet from being ripped

    hope it helps
