Meike 8mm f/3.5 Ultra Wide Angle Fisheye Lens

1 year 3 weeks ago #635589 by Gump
I was looking for fisheye lens and stumbled on this Meike 8mm for $164 on Amazon.  I'm a bit skeptical of the price.  Seems way low and I'm wondering what to expect. 

Have you tried one of these?

I had one for a day.  It was awful. Junk.   On the other hand the 7 Artisans was pretty good.  I would go with that one.

Meike’s Products are hit or miss and their customer service is terrible. Even their “high end” stuff has a lot of QA issues. I bought a twin flash from a place in the US and they sent the flash straight from China to my doorstep. That was why the mess began in the first place. Meike has no customer service dept that I can tell, or, at least, I never seemed to deal with an actual customer service. The entire ordeal cost me about $100 trying to return it. Then they held me at ransom to get my money back when they noticed I gave them a bad review after months of back and forth

STAY AWAY!!!

I just did a little search and these guys don't get good reviews at all for their customer service.  Sorry but pass for me.

If you have a nice camera body, why put junk like this on it?  It's $163 for a reason.
