Great little lens paired with the SL1. I have it paired with my 150-500 and people stop and stare and laugh. Crazy!

I think this is a must have simply because of the price and size. It easily fits into your pocket and only costs around $100-150. I use it for when I need to stealth my 6D into looking like a lower end Rebel (sometimes places don't let you in with "Professional" cameras).
