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. If you are looking to increase the width of your shot, this is the lens for you.
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. When threading this lens onto a filter, a bit of the lens appears in the picture, but when threading the lens directly to the camera without a filter, the lens does not creep into the picture. I would recommend it.
Summary: This thing is amazing for the price.. It really opened up my filming possibilities in small places, like hallways and tight living rooms where you want to get everyone in the shot... I see no distortion at all. The lens is large and a little heavy but a small compromise with the shots it produces for the price you Pay!!! definitely recommend that this be every 37mm cameras first purchase to help out the Wide angle shots!!!!
Summary: Wow! My HD Video Camera was missing a lot. Not anymore since the lens never comes off. Why can't the manufacturers build this into the cameras? Oh, I see: After market product/accessory sales. I'm wide-eyed with anger at them. On the other hand, this turned out to be the perfect solution to my tunnel vision. I'm free at last, free at last. Sorry 'bout that. Buy this. You'll thank me later.
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: it needs a case for it to stand becuase it gets top heavy and i thought it would be wider, also if you have nightvision on your camcorder it will block the infrared light on the camcorder , but it does look better gives it an HD look, over all the HD look makes up for it but now i have to spend more money on a stand.
