    Most of those kind do - far too cheap and whilst it will give you the magnification the image quality is likley to suffer considerably.
    However check out a Raynox DCR 150 or a DCR 250 (the 250 is more powerfull) they are similar products, with a low price, but are very far from low quality. Infact they can stand up to some very rigourous macro testing and still come out on top.

    I agree with overread about the raynox products. I bought the 250 and use it on my 50mm. Its a nice combo. Its great for flowers and objects that dont move but not so much for ones that do. So now Im looking for a true macro lens with a better focus distance. But for 62 bucks you cant beat the raynox 250
