Hi

Does anyone have any experience using a Vivitar .43X Wide Angle adapter? I have tried it on my 50 1.8 and 28-70 but the quality is really poor. I accept that the quality won't be L class but didn't expect it to be so bad! Do I need spacers? I have emailed Vivitar but they are unwilling to help.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Do you have any samples?

I've heard the Opteka adapters are more acceptable.

I think the fact that it costs around $20external link (or £32 if you get it from Ebay) is a fair indication as to the quality one could expect.
