HD2 Wide Angle Lens Wanted

I am interested in buying the wide angle lens for the HD2. Anyone know a reputable dealer that carries the lens. Have done some searching but haven't come up with a good alternative.

Assistance appreciated.

I don't know how I didn't locate it at B&H. I just ordered the .4 lens. David, thanks much for your help.

The catalogue page is I'm afraid miswritten. a 1.4x is not a wide angle lens adaptor, it's a telephoto adaptor. If you want a wide angle, you want the .6x.
I really wish Sanyo would reduce the telephoto end of the camera's zoom and instead improve the standard lenses widest angle so that these adaptors became less necessary.
