No such thing as "cheap but good" in glass to fit a 72mm lens. Century Optics has a 0.6x that is partial zoom thorugh and not totally unreasonable inprice, someone must import it, or ship it to Europe. I believe that Optex offers some also, and they are in the UK.

Greetings
I got a wide angle adapter from Cavision with partial zoom through. Perhaps I dont have enough experience with lenses, but it seems to work fine for me. Does any one know better? If I can get a better picture by purchasing a Century Optics then Ill switch right away!

My lens was $280 from www.cavision.com.

My two cents: if you are satisfied with the picture you get, no point in changing.
