Does anyone have a video of the Sony .08 lens adpater?

I am thinking of investing in the .08 Sony wind angle lens adapter for my EX1.
would love to see an example of a regular shot, then the same shot using the wind angle adapter. Does anyone have such an animal? I was considering the .6 adapter by Century but thought I read where the company has recalled that lens.

Thanks in advance.

Phil

I just bought one, and it's a nice piece of kit. I don't have a Matte Box to worry about attaching. No video but here's the view of my kitchen at Z0 on each one from the same position. The CA seems to disappear by about Z7 on the adaptor.

It was the 0.75x Century converter that was recalled, the 0.6x adapter is still available. Quite a bit of barrel distortion but very wide.

I have their juicer - built like a tank, but looks nicer. If they made tripod, we wouldn't be able to carry them without steroid-laden PA's.
