        Comments about Raynox HD-5050PRO-LE High Definition 0.5x Wide Angle Conversion Lens:

        This is my third wide angle converter and by far the best so far. I use it on my Sony SR-12 and it works just wonderful. Image is sharp with barely noticeable distortion. All in all, excellent value for the money.

          Comments about Raynox HD-5050PRO-LE High Definition 0.5x Wide Angle Conversion Lens:

          Most wide-angle lenses have a substantial +10%) difference between the horizontal and vertical magnification. That results in bowing of straight lines, and other distortion. This one doesn't - the horizontal is 51% and the vertical is 53%.

          The result is that it works as an excellent demagnifier - perfect for use in a small studio when you need a wider shot but can't back away.

          The lens performs perfectly without any noticeable distortion or vignetting at all zoom levels. The only reason for giving it 4 stars is that the adapter rings it comes with (plenty to handle all situations) are plastic and easy to damage. But that's fine, considering the price of the entire package is quite low.

          Comments about Raynox HD-5050PRO-LE High Definition 0.5x Wide Angle Conversion Lens:

          It would be 5 stars, but the 37mm plastic adapter
          (Which is necessary)is junk. The lens itself is great, very sharp and well made. My advise is to get an additional 37mm adapter from B & H

                                I'm an avid amature photographer and chose the Raynox wide angle lens because it provided a wider field of view than the Canon and was significantly less money. The reviews convinced me that it would be perfect for my HF-10 camcorder and it is. I love being able to take a photo of my whole house outside and an entire room inside. The standard lens on the camera doesn't allow that ability. It's especially great for outdoor shots. It mounts easily and is more lightweight than Canon's lens. The quality is excellant. I think I made a very smart choice and am very happy with it.

                                  Purchased this for use on a Canon Vixia M31 HD camcorder. The image clarity is great, with very little decrease in light. There is some slight vignetting when shooting in full wide angle, but it quickly goes away with just a little zoom. Very pleased with lens and would recommend it.

                                  i was looking for a higher end wide angle lens and was going to go with the WD-H37C II by cannon, but i felt i wanted a wider picture than .7x was going to give me. this seemed to be my only option in a higher end consumer lens. luckily for me this lens is great. clear picture. slight barrel distortion but that is to be expected with a wide angle. has threads to attach 62mm accessories. lens cap is a piece of junk and isn't very good at keeping dust out, a rubber slip on cap would have been much better. also just a little bit of black in the bottom right hand corner

                                  I use this adapter for skydiving video on a Sony CX100. It is a good quality and very light wide angle, perfectly zoomable. Only cons: is a bit thick.
                                  I'll recommend it to everyone.
