      I attached the lens to my SD Sony handycam. The quality of the glass on the wide angle lens was immediately apparent, as it cleaned up alot of the noise you typically see with low quality glass. At full wide you get this cool peephole effect. With some tweaking in post I was able to turn it into a cool fisheye effect. I zoomed past it and still has a full quarter more of the image than with out the lens. I noticed that the camera was able to focus much faster and stay in focus alot longer throughout the optical and digital zoom. Up until I got to full zoom, then it was very blurry. The limitations of the handycam caused the image to stay blurry, so I backed it off a little and the handycam was able to focus on the image, while in almost full optical zoom.

      Used with Sony 580V handycam. It did provide a slightly wider FOV than the built in lens but not much. For the price it's decent, though. It helped me get a shot inside an elevator. For better quality and wider angle you may want to spend a bit more money.

        Didn't know it existed until B&H experts clued me in on it. Now my Canon camcorder can record wall-to-wall from 6 feet away, making it perfect for meetings, etc.

          What an impressive piece of equipment to add versatility to great wide angle and macro shooting. I used this on a SONY camcorder and the flexibility I achieved was far better than I expected.

                I use this lens for shooting in a small martial arts studio as well as in our lecture room in our chiropractic office. With it I am able to get all the action at both locations. So far I have no complaints.

                This lens is currently on my CX-150. I love that it doesn't have the fish-eye effect and no vignetting. Basically what you see with your eyes is what this lens will give you. Great lens at a very reasonable price.
