WA-H82 wide attachment.

The Canon WA-H82 wide attachment looks to be about 110mm on the front, comes with a hood but doesn't look like you can screw a filter on.

Just as well the 110mm B+W UV costs around $US200 which would make the package close to a grand! As you were. Cheers.

Re: WA-H82 wide attachment.

Jalan, I have the Canon WD-H72 Convertor and recommend it, it's great.

The first thing I noticed was its fine image with great colours and the barrel distortion in minimal.
It doesn't have a front thread for a filter but it does comes with a lens hood.

Note the Canon H82 version is called a 'wide angle' lens and it's heavy .. very unusual lens hood shape, but Canon should know by now.
See the reviews ..

Keep an eye on the BnH used store, some bargains ocassionally appear there. If you get one, always make sure you always use 'new' fibre cleaning cloth .. I never clean it on location, set everything down, use a blower brush at different angles to remove any micro sticky grit, lightly breathe on the lens, then carefully wipe it in a circular motion, centre to outside edge. If I do that twice I use another new section of cloth.
To put a scratch on a lens like this would be the absolute pits :(

BnH offer some others, with varying prices and reviews ..

Re: WA-H82 wide attachment.

I have the Schneider Century versions of these WA lenses for both my 305 and 105. I find them indispensable. Seem to work just as well as the Canon versions.

Re: WA-H82 wide attachment.

I have the WA-82 and use it on occasion. It's so freekin heavy! But it does look really good for certain shots. Works great on the crane and I have used it on my GlideCam. I can't see a difference in color or sharpness.
