    I received the MCON-P01 Micro converter Lens yesterday. I went out this morning to take a few pictures. I should have brought my tripod, but the Micro lens converter worked very well especially since it only costs $50.

    Here are some photos from my first outing with the Lens Converter.

    Purchased it via eBay thru 17th St. Photo. Ordered it Sunday evening and it arrived Friday.

    One of the added benefits of the lens converter is the improved Bokeh. The backgrounds IMHO look really good.

    Just curious, did you pay $8 for shipping as well or was it $50 total? If it's going to end up costing ~$60 I might as well get it from somewhere that ships faster.

    USPS Priority Mail is faster Coast to Coast, and does provide delivery confirmation, but does not have detail tracking info, so many vendors still use UPS which is more expensive and slower. One week NY to San Diego was acceptable. :biggrin:

    The net after tax delivered cost of the MCON-P01 from 17th St Photo was actually $54.50 after deducting the current eBay Bucks 7% cash discount of $3.50. I felt that this was a real sweet deal :2thumbs::2thumbs::2thumbs:

    I have 2 pieces of that setup...I just lack the "time" component... :rolleyes:

    I love seeing what can be accomplished w/ a relatively inexpensive combo...

    Great shots!
