Hi Asaf,

The wide angle adapters form Canon itself are very expensive. They cost more then the lens you own. Maybe it would be better to purchase a new lens instead of adding a Canon adapter.

Canon's wide converter W 80 HD + 85 II adapter ($4.840 + $370 list price)

Or Canon's wide attachment WA 75 HD + 85 II adapter ($2.2910 + $370 list price)

Schneider Optics also makes very good adapters.

The page says YH17x7KRS, but I guess that must be wrong because that lens doesn't exist.

Asaf,

Below is the .8x (20% wider, zoom through) lens that you need. The 85mm clamp-on adapter ring is included:

We also make a .5x wide angle and a Fisheye if you are interested.
