Thread: About FZ18 and a surprising wide angle option available

    Default About FZ18 and a surprising wide angle option available

    Just got FZ18 about 2 days ago from Alan Photo. Since I was there, I just asked casually whether there are any wide angle option available. (before this, I read from this forum and dpreview that the maximum wide angle that is possible is 0.8x). I was surprised when I was told that there is and the ratio is 0.45x (that works to be 28 x 0.45 = 12.6 mm, a really wide angle indeed!).
    Hmmm…quite tempting…
    And I asked how much would that be, and he said $150, inclusive of the adaptor, wide angle and lense cap. Apparently it can be “fix and leave it permenantly” type.
    I am not well verse with these wide angle stuffs and was wondering how bad the vigetting, distortions,etc will be like , but he claimed that “its quite ok”.
    Since I wasn’t quite ready for a really wide angle yet, and he says it can be done and fix later if next time, I decide to go for it, so I give it a pass for now. Sorry I didn’t catch the name of the adaptor or the model/name of the wide angle.

    Anyone keen to be first
