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: Amazon Prime took it to me today. It is a great wide angle lens. Thank you all for leaving reviews on this lens. This might be the best original wide angle lens there that is not SO expensive.
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.
