Wide angle lens vendors

(hope this is cool to ask)

Trying to find the best price on wide angle lenses and just wanna to be sure some of the internet sites I'm looking at are reliable -

Anyone have experience w/Bug Eye Digital in San Francisco?
How 'bout 2filter.com in Connecticut?

Any input appreciated. Thanks.

Don't know if there is a Techpro inporter into the US?
I got the Techpro 0.5 Wide angle from Creativevideo.co.uk and it is an excellent piece of kit.... around £65
1) Zoom though
2) No vignetting
3) Sharp
4) Certain amount of distortion.... but I can live with it as it opens up the use of the 950 in tight quarters....

cheers
Gareth

The Tecpro 0.5s is also available at http://www.camerafilters.co.uk and it's a goodie. The 950 cries out for a 0.5x and I'd advise anyone to avoid the more feeble 0.7x converters with this cam.
