The best part of this product is its price. I've purchased other products like this, namely Lensmate brand tubes, and while those are excellent quality, they are much more expensive than DX's. Expect to pay 5x the price for something similar from other vendors. Build quality is decent, being made of aluminum and painted (anodized?) black. There are some issues, but, they're easily overlooked (see below in cons).
Unfortunately, this is a 58mm threaded tube, not a 52mm one. The 52mm tubes are generally less expensive, accomodate a wider range of filters, etc. and those filters are generally cheaper than 58mm threaded. I wish this came with the lens cap.
Definitely good value for your money, but a 52mm variety would be much more useful.
Very good addition to your camera if you own an S5, I used my S5 as a "beater" camera that always stayed in my school bag and would go to partys with me Not only did this add the capability to screw on my wide angle and fisheye lenses onto the S5 but for normal use I would screw on a UV filter and that saved the S5's crappy pop out lens countless times, It saved it from dust, and of corse a very klutzy user
good solid product that clicks right into your S5, saved my camera many times and added screw on attachment compatibility
This is strongly built and easy to attach to the camera. The frame is metal and just screws into the bottom tripod mount (you can still attach a tripod to the bottom of the frame). The eye-piece is attached to this frame whenever you want to use it. It just attaches by surprisingly strong magnets in the eye-piece; so strong in fact that you need to be careful not to get into the habit of holding the camera by the eye-piece! The lens in the view-finder is large and very clear - it makes it easy to ensure that you have focus on the item you want, or that you have the depth of field you want. This is particularly helpful for close-up work. The eye-piece cuts out all the sunlight when you hold it up close to your eye and this is helpful in bright sunlight. I have to weal glasses both for long and short distance and I find an on-camera viewfinder to be very difficult to use. With this eye-piece it is a real pleasure to use this excellent camera. I now leave the attachment bracket on my came
The ability to rotate the rubber eye-piece would be an advantage when using the camera in the vertical position.
A "MUST-HAVE" for all Canon EOS M owners. It is well priced, strongly built, of good quality, easy to attach and you would almost think that it had been developed by Canon specifically for this camera.
