Default $57 macro filter/lens

I bought this lens/filter at Adorama but B& H has it too. It clips on to most lenses and gives you a 2.5:1 macro. Wow! What fun

Have you tried it on a prime lens or just zooms? I had difficulty focusing with the prime.

Here are some I just took with a 50mm prime on a Leica M8. Focusing is hit or miss. It is salad greens.
