You can get the Canon original, or go for thrid party like Raynox.

Any difference between the original and third party cos the price is about 50% difference?

Thanks:dunno:

For lens, there will be some difference. You need to test them out. Canon is re-known for their glass on SLR and dSLR.

But when it comes to adapter lens, they still do provide the advantage over 3rd-party. However saying that, some 3rd party do make good lens too. Slightly vignetting or CA are unavoidable.

Go to the Mass order thread below and look for Morphis the Raynox rep for Jim mcGill:

Call him if you want more info or go to the links i gave earlier. Bought the 52mm DCR-6600PRO as recommended and tested with the Lensmate adapter (52mm). Really love the difference it makes for wide angled shots.

I have 2 lensmate adapters though, the 52mm and the58mm. The 58mm is used for filters as ?I have the cokin filters from my old 35mm SLR days.
