Thread: Wide angle convertors

  1. #1

    Default Wide angle convertors

    Was thinking of getting one for my Canon S1 IS, have anyone tried the Olympus WCON 07 on it before ? Hows the quality like ?

    BTW is it possible for the WCON 07 to be used, say on my old Canon EOS 500 kit lens ? Thanks in advance.

    Wah, that a 77mm filter size. No way you can find 1 WA con with that thread size. 52mm is about the largest you can find in the market for WA con.

    Any one who wish to try my WA con can PM me.

    Sorry, I didnt express myself clear enough.

    I used the WA con on 24mm f2.8 sigma lens & 50mm f1.8 MKII canon lens since both have filter thread size of 52mm.

    I would suggest that you try this kind of setup before buying to see how you like it. Just PM me with your contact lor.

    fuji uses 55mm WA and TC filter threads

    so I guess the largest is 55mm?
