    Does anyone have any experience with this:

    I was hired to take some pubscene photos at the local renassaince fair, and thought this might be a good way to get that feel. I was going to throw it on my 18-55, and use it wide.

    What do you guys think?

    i have the .25x (i think) version of this adapter.
    it's fun, but the IQ is really crap all around the outside. i use it on my 18-55 kit, and if i pull it all the way beck to 18mm its like looking out a hotel door. i try to keep it such that the image still fills the area, but thats just me.
    IQ in the middle is ok, but much beyond that it gets bad.

    Sure it will work.

    The real question is: Will it work well enough?
