  1. has anyone out there heard of these items ? I was on vacation and I
    was convinced to buy these for my Minolta Maxxum 7000 35 mm camera.
    They were expensive. I can't find them on the web and I am wondering
    if I was taken. the word titanium is on the super wide angle lens also
    thanks Carole

  2. Did it look like this?

    If so, it's one of the screw-on superwide attachments that are
    flooding ebay. Some try to sell them for $50 to $90, but they aren't
    even worth that much. With careful shopping you can snag a similar
    model in the $20-30 range.
    The lenses are great fun on video cameras, but they're hell on film.
    The optical quality is usualy poor but you do get the fisheye effect
    when used with a standard 50mm lens.
    Kenko (and a few others) made some really good screw-on fisheye
    lenses, but given the price you really should consider the Vivitar or
    Tokina superwides, or maybe a Russian screw-mount fisheye and an
    adapter for your camera.
