Need wide-angle zoom lens for hd10u

Iím looking for a wide-angle zoom lens for my hd10u. Keeping in mind that I would like to stay under $300 (or under $200 if possible) what would you guys suggest as the best value for the money.

Thanks

We are going with the Cavision wide angle they sell for the HD10 to go along with the Cavision 3X3 matte box. We are waiting for it to arrive and I will post my impressions then.

I think we paid around $220 CAN which would be about $150 USD. They are a local Vancouver BC company. They don't sell the products themselves you have to get them from a retailer.

Century has the DS-65CV-58 for about $400 at BH. There is also Crystal optics 52mm .45x professional high speed auto focus wide angle lens w/macro for about $200 (catalog no. cv52wa). I do not know which is better but of course the crystal optics does not require a step up ring.
