Is it zoom through? I am wondering if you could post a few frame grabs in 16x9 mode showing the "haze" around the edges. I have been toying with a lot of wide angle adapters and have avoided these "digital Optics" as I have heard they are very low quality. WOuld love to see the the fall off on the outer edge of the lens......especially in 16x9. Also...is it a .7x or .5x?

Thanks!
Marty
