Wa adaptor quality

Hi All
How good are the wide angle adapters for EX1 cameras? The old Z1 with a WA Adaptor was so soft that it was almost unusable. Does anybody find that with the EX1?
Cheers

Re: Wa adaptor quality

They have been reviewed a number of times and example provided. Just search on VCL-EX0877 or "wide angle ex1"

Bottom line (to my memory) is softness wasn't an issue. It was more barrel distortion. That said, I almost bought one. Dean Sensui shoots a fishing program with one.

Re: Wa adaptor quality

Other than a bit of added barrel distortion, you would barely notice having the Sony adapter fitted. I use mine all the time, there is no added softness.
