Summary: Was considering the Canon Wide Converter WD-H58W for my Canon HF-G10 video camera (at a cost of more than $400) but, instead bought the Sony VCL-DH0758 (used, for less than $50) and I am extremely please with this lens.

Summary: I bought this lens for my Sony DSC-H20 camera which did not provided a very wide view are. These lens make a big difference. Now I can cover a larger area. My camera looks nice with this wide angle lens. I can take nice and colorful panoramic pictures.
Summary: Before purchasing this lens, I read several reviews. Having owned (6) Sony digital cameras over the years, the compatibility seemed acceptable. The only issue may be the shadow seen with some flash shots. For my use, this is not an issue. Very good quality product.
Summary: I have a DSC-H1. I've tested this lens extensively. It adds more than a 33% to your field of view, but that added stuff is warped and blurry. I am unable to get a shot that is clear enough to be proud of. It exaggerates the H1's natural tendency for purple fringes.
The lens fits perfectly with my SONY H5 with an adapter and produces beautiful, extra-wide angle photos.

Summary: I intened to only give it 4-star since with the size of the lens, flash will shot a significant shadow on almost half the size of the photo. Yet, it's the design issue on H5, not the lens. Overall, under sufficient lighting condition, the images look great.
Summary: I got this wide angle conversion lens last month to be put on my Sony DSC-H3. The effect is tremendous! I can now easily capture a wide frame of picture that goes much beyond what H3 had to offer (even though H3 is already pretty good without any additional lenses).
Summary: I have a Sony CyberShot DSC-H1 that came with an adapter tube (56mm to 52mm). I thought it would be great to extend the power of the 12X lens by buying this 0.7X wide angle converter and a 1.7X tele converter lenses, also made by Sony.
