Alan, this might be a cool add-on. If I were thinking of getting it for my 5700, I would like some additional information, such as (but not limited too):

*They say, "some vignetting." How much is some? And does it vignette at all zoom positions, or only the wide positions?

*Can you use the camera's full zoom range with this thing attached?

*What is the effective light-loss? If you end up having to increase your exposure 3 or 4 stops to compensate, will this allow you to use a high enough shutter speed to capture your subject under the conditions you usually shoot under? And, will you be able to hand-hold this rig or be limited to shutter speeds that will only allow you to get sharp results from a tripod?

*Are the warranty and return terms acceptable to you?
