    i bought this over ebay 2 days ago still waiting for it to arrive 3 weeks later
    Let's hear the results. So far, these converters are only famous for two things: being overprized and degrading the image quality. That's why many people try to sell them again in Buy&Sell here.
    Here an offer that nearly made me falling off the chair:

    Two days later he even increased the price and wants to trade with a Canon 70-200 f/2.8

    Haha. Firsthand experience. My workmate screamed for my blood when she saw the results of an UWA lens (and I learned never to use it on people until I'm better).

    I feel you. Committed the mistake too. But my speed of deleting the photo is faster than someone walking 2 steps to me. Phew!

    I hope TS have an idea how others may react when shot using UWA... The "art" will become more obvious if it's not taken straight on but from the top or side.

    In short, if really really have to, shoot it straight on and pray that the distortion is "hidden" or totally make it a creative shot "大头照"

    Haha. Interestingly quite often my subject are children so they could be amazed by the 大头照!

    Jokes aside I roughly got the idea liao. No UWA for me for the moment and I will keep on practising with my kit lens for group shots

    Tried it before but I think I'm 15-20 feet away coupled with a bounce flash, the result was very pleasing.
