Bower Digital super wide lens .42 AF

Is this lens any good? And would it be adaptable to a Nikon D80? Someone nearby is selling this used, 'best offer'. Sounds cool..

I have a 50mm, 28-300mm, and 18-135mm for my D80. Would this offer me something different?

Thanks!

Re: Bower Digital super wide lens .42 AF

Amazon sell these for $26. Check out the review down the page a bit.

This is a converter type lens. It screws onto the filter thread of your existing lens. (If you have a 46mm filter thread). I don't think it will add anything to the quality of any pictures you might take, even if you get a wider angle.

I'd give it a miss unless you want to try it for fun.
