Adds just the right amount of width

  • Excerpt: Too bad the camera can't go this wide natively. After using this lens shooting in a commercial kitchen it has become difficult using the camera without it. The lens does make the camera a little front heavy and adds some weight but overall it's a great addition to my kit.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Professional Quality

Half a shade...twice the glare

Joe, B&H Photo
4 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I shoot hockey, and wide angle coverage is needed with the puck whizzing around, but without a matte box and sunshades, the half lens shade seems to generate unwanted glare. A nice price, but hey SONY, for a few more dollars put a full plastic shade around the lens. Might help. Century .75 is better optically, but vignettes.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Price
  • Cons: Poor Performance

  • Excerpt: Very clear optics, I'm impressed for the price. I've used many other combinations and wide adaptors, this is right up there. The ability to zoom through is a big bonus.

Wide Angle a great add-on

Daffodil Dave, B&H Photo
4 December 2011
  • Excerpt: The lens seems well built and carries some weight which I like with lenses. It attaches easily to the front of the camera and is showing no signs of distortion on edges with images. If you film in spaces with limited room this is a great buy.
  • Pros: Interfaces Well With Camcorder

Great lens

Craig, B&H Photo
20 June 2011
  • Excerpt: I like the lens, but would like it wider. Of course, it would be more expensive then. And you might not be able to zoom through it. Because of it's large size, there should be threads on the front for a UV filter. I'm always worried about scratching the lens. It is heavy, but not unbearable. There is some barrel distortion, but with the right framing it's not bad. I didn't notice an softening of the image when zooming.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Interface With Camcorder, Quality Construction, Zoom through
  • Cons: Could be wider, Heavy, No provision for UV filte
