    Comments about 16x9 Inc. 169-HDWC8X-EX EXII 0.8x Wide Angle Converter:

    Easy to use. Distortion free and just that extra bit of wide angle I need for most situations. I can't say enough positive things about the 16x9 0.8 adapter. Love the bayonet mount to my Fujinon lens on my EX3 - wish my matte box adapater had one as well (threaded adapters are scary). This piece of glass is clean, clear and completes my system.

      Comments about 16x9 Inc. 169-HDWC8X-EX EXII 0.8x Wide Angle Converter:

      This wide angle does such a great job. It also can be used with a matte box making it a whole lot more useful than the Sony one. Filming beautiful wide scenic shots with ND grad filters looks amazing!
