The Raynox SRW-6600-58 Wide Angle Lens has the same high quality optical performance as the renowned DCR-6600PRO Wideangle lens except that SRW-6600-58 does not cause any vignetting of the image with most camera models. The lens is made of hi-index optical glass, with a 3-group/3-element arrangement to minimize distortion (-1.3%), and all lens surfaces are fully coated for clear and sharp images. It's an ideal accessory lens for professionals and advanced amateurs shooting in tight places.

      I use the Canon HFS100 and I had a problem in the past with filming my school's activities such as concerts and getting everyone in the frame of the camera. I bought the lens so that I could get the entire chorus in view from the limited distance that I had. What it did was far beyond my expectations. It not only allowed me to get the entire stage, but it also allowed me to zoom in some and still get the entire chorus but in more detail. Also, as an added bonus, it just makes your camera look that much more legit.

      So-so lens

      Used on a PD-150 and Canon HV30 (w/ 43-58mm step ring). Works well when at full wide. Noted blur vignetting and light smear whenever not at or near full wide on both cameras. Difficult to get sharp focus. Notably worse than Canon WD-58 lens, sadly only a little better than a $20 no-name [...] 0.5x WA lens I got at a yard sale. Wouldn't recommend the lens for running situations where you wouldn't readily be able to remove it the moment you didn't want the wide angle, but works fine for its specific purpose under controlled conditions.

        Comments about SRW-6600-58, 0.66x Wide Angle Lens (Silver):

        Bottom Line: Do Not Buy. A wide angle converter should work from edge to edge. It should give you more photo width than without using it. This lens does not do this. It gives you less.The difference between using this lens and not using it left me with less usable area in the photo. I have an old Canon 58mm wide angle converter with no distortion across the entire photo. I thought I could go cheaper with this lens than the Canon. I was wrong. Every test shot I took was worse than not using the lens.[...]

        Comments about SRW-6600-58, 0.66x Wide Angle Lens (Black):

        I was impressed by the clarity of this lens, but there is quite a bit of vignetting while attached to my Canon G11. I find that if I use a spacer ring and zoom out just slightly, the vignetting is reduced...thus resulting in less of a wide angle.

            Almost no barrel distortion, excellent construction, strong, smooth threads, and a nicely heavy weight to it, this lens is very nicely made.

            Of course, it's not meant to be used at the far telephoto range, so if you're zooming into the farthest 25% or so of your range, your autofocus may have trouble (as mine does on a Canon HV20).

            Overall this is a great lens! The focus is great.
            The sharpness is incredible. the only drawback is a little vignetting in the corners but this can easily be cropped out in photoshop.

              This lens is great! With my HV20 I see no vignetting and I can zoom all the way to 10x without any problem! Yet, this lens requires a lens hood, without one you will get lens flare. Still it is top quality lens.

                  Comments about SRW-6600-58, 0.66x Wide Angle Lens (Black):

                  I purchased the SRW-6600-58 0.66x Wide Angle Lens to use with my Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8-4.0 DG lens. My DSLR has a 1.5 multiplication factor due to the less than full size sensor. Using the Raynox lens gives me back my 28mm wide angle (vice 42 mm with the 1.5 multiplication factor). Works well with Pentax K10D. No vignetting, even image, no hit on the light gathering capability of the Sigma F2.8 lens.
