          Price is great. It's not Century, but it doesn't weigh 3 pounds. Extremely happy with the functionality on my Fuji lens. Only slight bowing of straight edges when next to a door jamb or something similar, but not enough to be distracting.

          I'd recommend buy, but for the moment proceed with caution regarding the matching lens hood. A manufacturing defect makes it not fit the adapter, and that's a bummer when you spend $150 for it. It's proving to be difficult to get the RMA to return.

              I use this on my HPX370.Does a great job at producing a good wide image as long as camera lens is full wide. Focus does track well through the glass.

              The lens that comes with the 370 is not very wide, the .8 wide converter is a quick simple way to get a little more frame for tight work when you need it. It looks a little soft around the edges, but you will need to spend a lot more money on getting a proper lens and adapter if you can't live with it. It is zoom thru, so you can run and gun. I prefer to put it on just when I need it, and take it off the rest of the time.

                      Purchased for my Panasonic HPX-300 with the 17X kit lens. It provides that extra wide view to make locations look just a little bit bigger than they actually are, without noticable distortion of the image. Great addition for the price.

                      Use this with the stock lens that came on my Panasonic HPX300 P2HD camera. Gives you a little wider coverage area with no degragation to the image quality. Maintains sharp focus edge to edge with little to no light loss.

                        I bought this for my Panasonic HPX300 with stock 17x Fujinon lens. Was hoping this would be an affordable option to purchasing the 13x Fujinon wide angle lens. This is by far the best front add on wide angle adapter i've used... Only ever so slight CA/and softness in the extreme far corners. Other than that, sharpness is excellent across the board with no loss in light or Vignetting... Same as without the adapter. Very well controlled barrel distortion. Exceeds my expectations! Highly Recommend!
