Summary: This high quality wide angle lens comes with: - rubber lens cap - soft fiber carrying pouch Once I installed this on my miniDV DCR-PC330 I've never taken it off since! The wide angle length made the camera much more usable for capturing vacation travel and general lifestyle events.
Summary: You can get in close and still have a wide angle. Sometimes you just can't get further back to capture the whole scene. At my daughters dance recital I used to to capture the whole stage so I didn't have to pan left and right all the time to follow the action.
Summary: Purchased this lense to be used with my videocamera. The lense is great and I am happy with it. The only thing I wish it had would be somekind of cover lense to be used in sandy or misty locations, because it would be easier to keep the lense clean and not have to worry about scrathing it.
Summary: i think this is a must have item if you dont want to be annoyed by how close the original setting... the auto focus with this lense is great but its big and wont fit in most small handycam small cases.
Summary: I previously bought a cheaper 2 element Sony lens for my Canon Vixia HF10 HD camcorder but it was fuzzy around the edges and had barrel distortion. This lens gives superb results and the 0.7 wide angle is enough to use indoors without distortion.
