Is there anyone in this forum has any experience or opinion about these lens.

I am planning to purchase a 52MM Kit for my FZ10.

Thanks for your help!

Do you have a link to show this lens (and may some specs)?

If you have not already checked out this string of messages here, give this link a click...

I'm a big fan of the Olympus add-on lenses- well made and produce a top-notch picture. Take look over atPemaraal Online ( http://www.pemaraal.com/index.html ). There are some good examples of what to expect from add-on lenses.

I just don't get a good feeling about these lenses. From what I've read here and in other forums, these "bundled" (or even separate) lenses just don't have the optics to provide you with consistently good pictures. I would look at Olympus (I'm biased!), Raynox, Sony, and some of the other main line brand names.

Those 'Titanium' lenses listed at that eBay seller are pure JUNK. Stay away from them.

Throw them to sellers head as hard as you can!

Pure scheisse, paperweight is only job those can do properly.

Already looking size/shape of those and comparing that to claimed coefficient tells those are frauds.

We do not ship to Italy.
Maybe that's because this kind of deceit is illegal in Italy?
