Got it

Thanks Tom. Got it and it all is well. Have not used it yet but certainly adds a lot of angle. Do a lot of weddings and will have to see how it is going to help me. Very heavy will add a lot of weight to camera.

<<<-- Originally posted by Tom Hardwick : yes, it just screws into the zoom's filter threads. But Raynox do make what they call ''snap on'' w/a converters. I was suspicious untill I tried them - they hang on real tight and are so quick to mount/dismount. They look a bit ungainly though, as they have powerful opposing springs in housings set 180 degrees apart.

Well, Doesn't sony make a .6, .65 and .7 lens for the miniDV/DVCAM market? I think the .6 and .7 is with a 37 mm thread and I am told they are really good.

Would most people rather buy a Kenko or Century over a sony?

Also, speaking of buying used and cheap lens, if you go to ebay, you can find a bunch of these cheap. Some of the wide angle lens look to be of questionable quality though....but some good deals too.
