    big and pro feel about it. comes with a rocking good lens shade that resembles a perfect sized matte box...helpful to differentiate my rig from consumer rigs and also useful to avoid lens flares. sharp picture on canon hf g10 unit. impressed, expensive but solid, gives about a 24mm wide angle view, much more broadcast look, mandatory for good exteriors. minimal bow distortion during first tests. ordered 2pm indiana time, arrived 9am next morning with other gear ordered using the one day ups. altho i use a 5dm2 rig for commercials and corporate videos, the consumer stuff requiring long form video recording with live action focus and exposure assistance makes this a winner on the g10.

    Decent Product

    Wide angle capability adds variety to video subjects. Great for family events and interior home shots when you want the widest possible coverage. Easy to attach. Lens hood fits on and off quickly.

    Comments about Canon WD-H58W Wide Converter Lens:

    XF105 is a great camera but often doesn't go wide enough. This converter does the trick and is very high quality. It's a bit heavy so balance is a bit front-heavy but not a big deal.

      Comments about Canon WD-H58W Wide Converter Lens:

      I bought this converter lens to get better indoor shots at family events with the Grandkids. I got my first chance to use it this weekend. The shots were very smooth and the lens worked just as I had expected. I got great performance throughout the entire zoom range and even in relatively low light the performance was very good.

      I would recommend this as a great add on.

      Useful option to provide extra wide coverage. The only reason for 4 stars is that I would prefer an integrated lens cover and a way to attach Matt Box style filters (such as threads). Glass is nice and product is as described, functions well with the XF100. Cost is a bit high, but the quality of the glass is good.

              Comments about Canon WD-H58W Wide Converter Lens:

              Why put cheap glass on a good camera? This is a great lens. You'll need to menu-dive to switch on the lens converter on the XA10, which isn't a problem once you get you get familiar with the camera. As mentioned in other reviews, there is some distortion when full-wide,but again, this isn't a problem once you know it. You can't attach filters or UV protectors because there is no thread, but the XA10 has an internal ND filter and the hood provides a lot of lens protection--so again, no problem. The XA-10 comes with a lens that goes pretty wide, but for tight spaces, this is a nice accessory that gives more options. And yes, you can leave it on for more "pro" looking camera and just zoom in. I keep it in the bag, but find myself using it enough to justify the expense. It got some heft, but doesn't interfere with hand-held shots.

                  This is a .8 convertor for a camera with an already wide lens. The glass is of excellent quality and works fine. The tread on the camera is very deep and takes concentration and time to fit properly.
                  I bought it because I was in NYC and accessorised my new camera. Prior to this I used the glass from my PD 150, which distorted a little bit but beat spending $$$ on this lens. The lens hood is an add on which makes this lens look more "professional". It means it doesn't fit easily into a bag and I've discarded it. Now it looks just like the wide conversion lens from the PD 150 to remind me I was an idiot.

                    I own my own video production company and have been using the Canon XA10 for almost two years now. Until I bought this wide angle adapter, I thought the video I was getting looked great (and it did). But after I bought this and put it on my camera the first time, it got me hooked. The picture is much wider than the stock lens and doesn't alter the image that much. It's such a fantastic piece to add to any kit. It's perfect for just about any occasion. I honestly don't see myself not using this lens from now on. I'm glad I finally decided to buy it, because it is definitely worth the money.

                        I use this lens for stage shows and plays. When doing video of dancers and ice skaters, it is nice to not have a lot of movement with the camera to follow the performer. Makes for an easier video to watch. Works very well in dim light or stage lighting. So far I have not found anything that would cause a negative comment.

                                Comments about Canon WD-H58W Wide Converter Lens:

                                This wide angled lens adds an extra dimension to my videos enabling me to get shots that are impossible without it. The lens produces crystal clear images and the reduction in light that reaches the sensor is negligible. The lens hood is excellent in reducing stray light reaching the lens.
                                The lens is easy to attach and remove from XA10, XF100 and XF105. Comes with a soft pouch for storage. The lens makes the front of the camera heavier so there is some adjustment in shooting style needed when you fist use it, but it is easy to adapt.
                                Useful for group shots, weddings, stage shows.

                                Comments about Canon WD-H58W Wide Converter Lens:

                                Lens is heavier than expected, but fits on smoothly to canon xf100. Definitely opens up a condensed area without too much of a fish-bowl look. Just got it so still getting used to it.
