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.

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: Very high quality lens for the price. Solid adapter ring and a high quality feel. Fit the Sony HDR-CX150 perfectly. Widened the close-up field by about two feet. It is relatively large and silver, so the camera handles a little differently and is more visible when the lens is installed.
Summary: Well, I'm usually generous for a purchase review. For this particular one, I'm very disappointed. I already own a couple of 0.45X wide angle lenses. When I compared this with them, there was absolutely no difference in the viewing angle. Now I have a bulky lens that I cannot return...
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: 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).
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.
