Zia, One quick way is to use a Century Optics fisheye adapter:

I think B&H has them for around $450.

If your using the 3X lens this puppy will give you an approximate effective focal length of 1.5mm (a 116 angle of view) with a ton of distortion to boot.

I got a mint one for under $100 on ebay. You will find them on there on occasion.

20X Lens with fisheye adapter

Hi Kevin, thank you for info. Will this 3X fisheye adapter work with 20X lense on XL2? the reason I ask is because at centuryoptics.com, it says that it works with 16X lense. Thanks once again.

Century was showing an incredible new version of the .3 lens at NAB, that has complete side to side coverage without vignetting. Wild looking!
