Summary: Good quality lens, but it is pretty large, and the adapters that come with the kit are plastic. I was expecting something like a 0.5x. It says plainly on the packaging that it is a 0.7x, but Amazon doesn't show that image or the information.
Summary: Used with HF20 / HF200 . Very nice lens, worth well more than the price offered. Fits well, does not impact focus, and provides a wider field of view. Comes well package and includes covers for both sizes of lens and a nice velvet carrying bag. My two complaints. 1.
Excellent for football field activity - can cover end zone to end zone

Summary: I bought this lens in the hopes of being able to capture a full football field of activity and it has not disappointed. From the 50 yard line or the corner of the stands in fairly small venues (e.g. high school or small college), I can record the entire field.
Summary: Easy to install! From package opening to recording with the camera, it literally took 2 minutes. I put it on a Sony HDR-CX110 and it fits well with one of the included adapter rings. There is no black around the edges, and the picture is still amazing.
Summary: this was exactly what i was expecting - a better-than-decent wide-angle lens for my camera (Sony HDR-CX100). i can't imagine finding a better lens for the price. the included plastic 30mm adapter ring was an upgrade from my thin metal one, too.
Summary: This was the cheapest wide angle lens I could find and I wasn't sure if it would fit on my Sony SR45, but it does thanks to the conversion screw on thing! This lens is great and I could capture my whole room with it on! So if you're looking for a cheap lens that works great buy this one!
Summary: IMHO this was the focal length that my HDR-SR11 should have been. This makes my camcorder so much more useable in close quarters. There is no discernible degradation of image quality. I can use it with the SR11 zoomed all the way out without issue. Great addition for "run and gun" shooting.
Summary: I recently purchased this lens for skating/bmxing, since i couldnt get close to who I was filming without them going out of frame. This lens definantly fixes that.! All this lens does is widen up your view. And it works great for that.!
Summary: Worked great for me on the Canon HFX100 HD camera - no problems focusing or using the integrated zoom. Didn't need the adapter rings -- but the lens seems to allow ample light, little to no distortion for my camera (this will be different for different focal length cameras).
