      Comments about Cavision LWA08X72 0.8x Wide Angle Adapter 72mm:

      When I purchased my Sony HXR-NX5U - from a different retailer - I wound up buying a "Special Package Deal". I love the NX5U, however the tripod, telephoto adapter and wide angle adapter that I received were all very poor quality (that's the last time I'll ever do business with them). I've recently started to shoot property listings for a real estate company, which requires the use of a wide angle lens... the company didn't like the vignetting of my "audition shoot", so I purchased this 72mm Cavision. What a difference in quality - there's no vignetting in the corners of the shot and no significant distortion at the edges.

      I've learned that B&H sells quality equipment for all different levels and budgets. I'm keeping my original adapter as a joke/special effect, it's just awful.

            Comments about Cavision LWA08X72 0.8x Wide Angle Adapter 72mm:

            A single element w/a attachment used on a Canon XH A1 in a restricted setting in a restaurant shoot. Gave a good picture with minimal barrel distortation; don't zoom through; but then why would you?
