I'm guessing that what this "lens" does is reduce the dynamic range of the 
image to match the capabilities of the sensor, rather than actually increase 
the range captured.

I assume it does this by masking bright parts with an LCD filter, like 
"dodging". If so, then it's more of a filter than a lens, and would only help 
cope with highlights, not low lighting in general.

A good idea, but whether it would be useful more often than it would be a 
hindrance in bird photography is another matter.
