          Comments about Sony VCL-HG0872X Wide Conversion Lens:

          As with my other Sony gear and Sony wide angle lens adaptor for my FX1/Z1, this Sony VCL-HG0872X Wide Conversion lens for my FX1000 does what is claimed. Images are sharp, with a full range of zoom, though one always would like a little more width! I like the new approach to attach by using the bayonet of the lens hood. Makes it much quicker than my FX1 threaded mount, especially in a darkened room at a music gig. I was disappointed that there was no lens hood. The Sony adaptor for my FX1 has an excellent cut-away lens hood. All in all, I am pleased with my new purchase.

              I bought this wide lens for my sony FX1, but it just doesn't fit, this wide angle lens only fits the FX1000,[...]Don't buy it if you want to use it on a FX1, Z1u or any other 72mm sony camera it just won't fit.IT ONLY FITS THE FX1000 that is not the same as the FX1

                Comments about Sony VCL-HG0872X Wide Conversion Lens:

                Bought this to shoot a short film in a small, narrow space. The footage looks fantastic, really great for close-ups and long shots. snaps right onto the camera and is easily interchangeable. But I will probably just keep this thing on at all times. Worth the money, which isn't much, comparably.

                  Comments about Sony VCL-HG0872X Wide Conversion Lens:

                  I mainly use this product at a local children's theatre so I can see the whole stage, as well as every kid up there, and boy does this do the trick! It works perfectly with the FX-1000 because it was MADE for it! It locks right on to the front of the camera and you know it won't go anywhere. Like on the floor. What others wouldn't really like about this is that it can't be used with other video camera or cameras, the locking system on the lens was only made for 3 different Sony Pro-sumer camcorders.

                  Great product and wouldn't hesitatte to buy again!

                    I have used a .7 Sony wide angle for years on an old Sony TRV900...never took it off. Gave me great, dynamic, stable shots with ample zoom opportunity for my needs. This lens does the same job for my new Sony HDR-FX1000, with no visible distortion or degredation of HD picture.Perfect! So is B&H. Prices[...] make them the industry standard.
