The best, and most impressive, Sony add-on lenses.

Dark Star, Amazon
29 June 2013
  • Summary: The VCL-DEH08R and the VCL-DEH17R are the finest Sony add-on lenses I've owned thus far. When coupled with the exceptional 'Zeiss' lens on the DSC-R1, they grab an incredible amount of light. They're very impressive looking pieces of glass, given their size, and although they are not quite as versatile as the changeable lens on DSLR's, they do a fantastic job of extending the reach of the R1.

Sony R1 wide angle adapter

Richard G. Rawlins, Amazon
11 July 2011
  • Summary: This is an excellent accessory for owners of the now iconic Sony R1 digital camera. The R1 has achieved cult status among photographers largely because of the extraordinary quality of the Zeiss zoom lens it carries. Also, at the time it was made, its sensor was state of the art. Adding wide angle and also tele capacity to the non interchangable Zeiss lens makes this camera even more useful.

Sony VCL-DEH09R Wide Adapter for R1

Malcolm Lyons "Outside the box", Amazon
14 November 2007
  • Summary: Sony VCL-DEH08R 0.8x Wide End Conversion Lens for DSC-R1 Digital Camera Image quality is excellent with no discernible drop from that of native lens. Build quality is good. Enables ultra wide shots suitable for real estate and architectural work (equivalent to 19mm in 35mm film). Needs a VAD-RA adapter - is still available - I sourced mine from the UK. Is much better than generic adapters as is designed for the optics of the native lens.

watch out -- need the VAD-RA adaptor

  • Summary: Maybe this lens is great, but Amazon does not indicate that the VAD-RA adaptor is needed to attach it -- and that is currently unavailable.
