Now I have wide angle with no hassle, great quality (really, really great), and not adding anything beyond 2mm to my lens.
Dear Admin, lock this thread for not promoting any of our sponsors. Unfortunately Red Eye could not be acquired through BHPhotoVideo, although I tried. But the lens is a w s o m e .
Peter, that's not a problem. The problem comes when you try to promote buying what our sponsors carry from someone else... such as the XL2 from XYZ Camera Co.
I've heard nothing but good things about the Red Eye from news photographers. Sounds like your experience mimics theirs so far.
