Arrow just got a substitute lens for the Cannon 500d macro

I wanted the Canon 52mm 500D Close-up Lens for $62.99 but it was not in stock like I thought it was. The very nice sales people over at www.accessorycircut.com Emailed me to tell me. So I call over to just cancel the order the guy on the phone says he has a better replacement for more money that he will give me free of the difference in price. But when I look this lens up on Ebay its $12.99 shipped from MI FL!


should I be pist off or did I get a lens worth that I paid? I paid $76.57 for a $12.99 lens


this is the lens I got as a "upgraded replacement"

You're welcome - it's always a good idea to "google" the seller reviews.

I know the feeling - we can all live without those kind of "great deals". That's pretty brazen to offer that kind of "replacement". Good thing you checked!

Sorry you got ripped off, lotust. I always check resellerratings.com before even thinking about buying from an unknown vendor.

Also, a good closeup "filter" will be a pair of achromatic doublets which are capable of producing excellent images, with fairly low loss of sharpness. Most cheap closeup filters consist of only a single lens and tend to cause severe chromatic aberrations.

That bower is no were as good as the 500D, the reason they cost so much less it because they are lower quality. Price do equate a degree of quality in the camera world with lenses. The 500D is one of the best ones on the market, it is a dual element lens.

Sorry you got rip off.
