    Default Any1 heard of wide angle lens?

    Any1 heard of wide angle lens?
    i mean a something like an add-on extension lens.

    Does it affect the f-stop?
    i assume it will affect the quailty of the image.

    you mean add on wide angle lens? for compact digital cameras?

    may vignette, cause dark corners, should have some lost of quality.

    not for the compact.

    but for a lens with specific thread size. eg 58mm etc.. yah might cause vig.

    It'll affect a bit but may not have vignetting if the converter is big enough. I've some samples taken using an Olympus WCON07 (55mm thread) on a Canon EF 24-85 USM (67mm filter size).

    Yah it would be cheaper getting another lens.
    Guess the lens maker just wana sell Digi - dedicated lens instead.
    sound more profitable to them then builting more wide angle converter.



    Any1 else having wide angle converter?? Care to share ur view?

    i used it, mounted a 0.5 WA converter onto a 24mm lens with d60. the image quality just dont cut it. corner sharpness is blurr, even when shot in f8, camera mounted onto tripod.
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.
