Sony FX7: what wide angle lens?
 
Hi, I'd like to purchase 0HD-55WA-SH6 0.55x lens Century Optics for my Sony FX7.
Somebody has just told me it will give me a lot of barrel distortion.
I like 0HD-55WA-SH6 0.55x lens because it is thin, light and because it is 0.55x.
I don't need to zoom with it, I will use it on wide-angle lens only.
Do you think I will do a bad choice buying 0HD-55WA-SH6 0.55x lens for my Sony FX7?
thanks, Giorgio

Zoom-through or not to zoom through
 
Not sure what the options are for the FX7 or what you intend using it for but are you sure you don't want zoom-through control?

You may not be planning any zooming shots as such, but having a better range of framing options is a huge benefit and will cut down on the amount of time you'll spend attaching and re-attaching your wangle.

Worth the extra euros I'd say.

I found these on ebay. I don't know if there any good but I am also thinking of one and I don't want to pay more than $80 as I will only use it occasionally and I am not a full time professional yet.

I know that an excellent lens is the HDP-6000EX High Definition

but the price is too much for me, at this time at least.
