Decent for the Price
By Dee N
First, remember that this whole package costs less than $60. In the world of optics, a multicoated filter could easily cost you as much. That said, the filters appear to be uncoated, so expect some flare when using them. The fluorescent filter is largely useless with digital photography as the camera uses automatic white balance. If you're using film, then it's a definite plus. The wide angle adapter definitely will show vignetting when used with wide angle lenses. I still haven't figured out exactly how wide I can get without having any vignette, but don't expect an 18mm lens to become a 7.7mm and still get a full frame image. The telephoto adapter has a lot of flare which the closeup adapter doesn't have. I'll need to clean them to see.
Would I recommend this to a pro? Possibly for use when there's no other way to get the image, but expect softness and flare when using the wide angle and telephoto adapters. The close-up adapters will improve your macro capability, but you'll get some softness and distortion using them. Often is this not too much of an issue.
If you're a casual DSLR user who wants to extend the capabilities of their existing lenses, then this might just be the right kit for you.
The neutral density filters allow you to either use a wider aperture to get a shallower depth of field or to slow down shutter speeds to introduce motion blur. The close up lenses will let you capture the bee on a flower or that tiny bug climbing up a tree.
The circular polarizer can help reduce glare and improve color saturation, especially in the sky.

This was the perfect kits of attachments. It was all of the filters I needed for less than I would have paid for just 2-3 of them if bought separately. Of course there are some that I might not have purchased, but now that I have them, it is something new to work with. They are the brand I was planning on buying anyway. So I spent less and received more than I planned
